I've never been affected at all by people around me dying, but I've also never had anyone this close die. So now I'll learn how I deal with death.
All of the relatives are posting messages on Facebook saying "prayers coming in from here" and "more prayers coming from here." I know I shouldn't be insulted by this. He was a Christian and probably would be grateful for these (if he weren't unconscious and all), but it all just seems so silly, like they aren't taking it seriously.
The image I have in my brain is of a bad Christian version of a Saturday morning cartoon, where there is some crisis and everyone puts on their superhero outfit and says "last minute prayer squad ASSEMBLE!" And what exactly are they praying for anyway? He's going to die peacefully, without pain, surrounded by family. What is there to pray for?
"God, we hope you end his life in exactly the same way you were planning to before we started praying, because we approve of your methods used in this instance. Amen."
