Casey Kasem is being taken off of life support.

On Wednesday, a judge in the iconic broadcaster’s conservatorship case reversed a ruling that had required doctors to keep 82-year-old alive at a hospice in Washington State.

According to TMZ, his children will now fulfill what they say are Kasem’s wishes.

They tell the outlet Kasem said, “If the extension of my life would result in mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning, then I do not desire any form of life-sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration.”

His wife Jean has been warring with Kasem’s children over his health and treatment, and was reportedly furious with the judge’s decision.
