It is very hard to see a loved one die,I lost my mother-in-law,father-in-law and are only son(age 42) in the last 2 years.What you have to do is believe that the medical doctors can only do so much and when God calls them there is nothing anyone can do,Just pray for them that they will be with God and pray for the people in purgatory so that they will be freed and be with God. I DON’T believe in Euthanasia, The Catholic Catechism says Dicontinuing medical procedures that are burdensome,dangeroues,extraordinary,or disproportionate to the expected outcome can be legtimate; it is the refusal of “over-zealous” treatment.Here one does not will to cause death; one’s inability to impede it is merely accepted. The decisions should be made by the patient if he is competent and able or, if not,by legally entitled to act for the patient,whose reasonable will and legitimate intrests must always be respected.
Hope this help’s
