Here's a post from 2003 we received in reply to a thread about the Ploesti raid:
To: NonValueAddedStill gives me goosebumps.
Mike Sullivan, the tail gunner in the B-17 that David Kingsley saved, died Wednesday, October 29, 2003 in his sleep at age 84. He had reached the end of his time on earth having laid down for a nap after lunch. He leaves his loving wife of 47 years, Gloria, and two daughters, Peg and Michele.
He was a kind soul and a good man. And he was my father-in-law. I married Peg in 1999; I had known him only since 1997. We will all miss him very much.

I took Linda to a very nice doggie park today. She go to run with a bunch of retired greyhounds. She kept up for a while, the when over to the fountain and drank a lot of water, and then came over to me and her eyes said, “OK I’m done. Let’s go home!”
