Arrow urgent prayer request/gpa with hours left to live.

When I talked to my Grandfather or Saturday he was coherent and talking. He couldn't hold up his phone, because he's been getting weak for a while now. I called Sunday and I couldn't understand his words. It's so sad for me, he's only 69 years old, and he's the only GParent I have left. He smoked most of his life, and drank most of that time as well. When my Gma was diagnosed with cancer he gave up both, however when she passed away he started again.

I know he's ready to go. He told me "I have my eye on the prize, I want Jesus to call me home, I want to see your Gma." I feel selfish saying I want him to stay, but I just am asking for prayer for comfort for him as he passes. The nurses are giving him "hours" in their exact words. His breathing is shallow, he isn't making eye contact and he hasn't ate or drank anything since Monday morning.

Pray for my comfort as well.... I really want to be able to handle this well. I'm just happy that DS was able to be held by him and meet him at his baptism (he made the 12 hour trip from MI to WI to suprise me for the baptism)

Thank you for the prayers, my grandap aka Poppa Terry passed away at roughly 6:00 p.m. eastern time. Pray for our family and for me... I'll be singing at his funeral, I"m a music teacher, and sang at all my other gparents funerals.
