One of America’s Presidents is about to pass on. Here is what to expect when he does …
When an American president dies, the nation and its people go into mourning. It is a time of sorrow and reflection on their legacy, as well as honoring their life and service to the country. The death of a president can have a tremendous impact on the nation, both in terms of policy and politics. But what happens after a president dies? The immediate response to the death of any president is shock and sadness.
Flags are lowered to half-staff for 30 days after the passing of a sitting or former president. The White House holds memorial services for them with heads of state from around the world in attendance. There are also services held in Washington DC as well as other cities across America to honor them.
Once all of these ceremonies are complete, then it’s time for more practical matters to be taken care of. The vice-president will assume office if there was no sitting president when he passed away, or they will finish out their term if there was one in office at the time. This process usually takes place within hours after news breaks that they have died.
So, who is on their death bed? Have a look…
The Gateway Pundit reported:
Former President Jimmy Carter, 98, has decided to spend his “remaining time at home” in hospice care, according to a statement released Saturday afternoon by the Carter Center. Carter was the 39th president, serving from 1977 to 1981. He is the longest living ex-president. Carter, a Democrat, was also governor of Georgia from 1971 to 1975.
One of the last times Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter were seen by the public was this bizarre wide angle photo with Joe and Jill Biden taken during a visit to their Plains, Georgia home in the spring of 2021.

ATLANTA (Feb. 18, 2023) — After a series of short hospital stays, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention. He has the full support of his family and his medical team. The Carter family asks for privacy during this time and is grateful for the concern shown by his many admirers.

Carter has been active well into his nineties, continuing his decades long work with Habitat for Humanity and teaching Bible study.
Since Jimmy Carter left the White House, he has taught a Bible study every other week at a Baptist church in rural Georgia. He recently taught his 800th lesson. Sometimes people wait outside overnight for a seat. pic.twitter.com/8PGF6CysGJ
