Just found out that a family friend, a really nice man named Ralph is in his last hours. My dad (a minister/pastor) is currently with him and hospice has told him that it will be within the night. Let us pray for him... Lord have mercy!

Ralph reposed about 15 minutes ago. Lord have mercy on him!

Just spoke with my mother about it, and he'd been in a coma for about a week, his pain was under control. And his wife is in the same room as him (she has a very severe case of alzheimers, and doesn't know anything that is going on).
