God Bless your Dad and the whole family. He has this one last mission to complete and he will go home to God in the Wild Blue Yonder.

Prayers going out for you and your family, Diane. My father was also a B-17 pilot in WWII (8th Air Force, 385th Bomb Group). He was a man of integrity and honor, humor and love, my hero. I lost him six years ago but still talk to him every day. Rest in the knowledge that you are the daughter of one of America's finest.

Thank you for the comforting words (from you and everyone). Daddy was 96th Bomb Group and like your dad, he is my hero as well.

God bless your Dad, Dianne. I was on dialysis for six years, and it had a mortality rate like a combat infantry platoon. I'm sure you've made the right choice.

We're fast losing the greatest generation. At a support the troops rally a couple of weeks ago, there was a WWII veteran there - with his portable oxygen tank and cane. I couldn't help thinking that before too long, there will be none who were there during that war.

God grant your father a gentle and peaceful passing, and comfort to you and yours. The nation will not forget the great sacrifices of his generation.

Actually, it is we who should thank you and your father for his service.

My father, who was with the 509th Composite Group on Tinian, recently passed away as well. We were faced with a similar decision as yours. He was coherent enough to make the choice himself. My only regret was that he passed away before we were able to get to the hospital that morning (we were spending every available hour with him for over 40 days).

These WWII vets were truly from the greatest generation.

God be with you and your family. I know how hard it has been for you, I took care of my father with alzheimer's for the last two years of his life. It is devastating for the family members. I pray GOD takes him home soon.

Bless your heart.. six years is a long time. I'm so glad to see you here!

Daddy's identical twin passed in 1973 due to kidney cancer. In 1984 cancer was found in daddys right kidney (his bros cancer started in his left kidney). They removed the kidney and all the cancer. My uncle passed around the 1st of April and here we are all these years later around the 1st of April.

For your dad...

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high unsurpassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
