Sad news from the Graham family

Ruth Graham, wife of evangelist Billy Graham is near death according to their public relations firm. Here's what they just sent out...

This morning, her condition began to deteriorate, with episodes of dropping
blood pressure and irregular heartbeat as she has become less responsive to
family and care-givers.

At her request, Mrs. Graham is being treated at home, with minimal artificial support. Earlier this week she indicated she did not want to be given any more
food or fluids, though she is receiving medication to manage her pain.

She continues to have fluctuating levels of consciousness, but is resting comfortably, with her husband, Billy Graham, and their five children by her bedside.
