My mom called me tonight. My grandpa passed away today at 7:30pm CST. We just saw him last week when we went to N.D. (we're in Alaska) and we knew it might be the last time. My mom was with him - she got to the nursing home last night. They gave him lunch in his room and by the evening they had him in the Prairie Rose Room (where they let people die quietly). My mom said his respirations were down to 50 last night and to 60 today. About 7:30 he just kind of let go and within 5 minutes he was gone.

Please keep my grandma and my mom in your prayers.

Jenn
