Georgia Veteran’s Dying Wish to Be Baptized, Go Fishing Is Granted
Katherine Rodriguez (Sep 15, 2016)
U.S. Navy Veteran Connie Willhite told the VA staff at Carl Vinson VA Medical Center in Dublin that he wanted to be baptized so he could “crossover” to the next life and that he wanted to go fishing one last time.
The fishing trip, however, required a lot more ingenuity on the part of the VA staff.
Willhite had to remain bedridden because of his advanced colon cancer, but that didn’t stop VA staff members from granting his dying wish.
Greg Senters, a social worker at the VA hospital, arranged for a mobile motorized hospital bed for Willhite so he could fish from the lake located behind the hospice unit at the VA center, KTLA reported.
Willhite didn’t even care if he caught any fish, but the 69-year-old Navy veteran wound up catching a few fish.
“There’s nothing like fishing. Even when they’re not biting, it’s still a good day to be outside, Willhite said to KSLA, “I know I’m dying and the cancer is going to get me, but as long as I can go, I want to fish.”
“I’ll never forget the look on his face… Seeing Mr. Willhite achieve success in his final days was more than gratifying, it’s a memory that I’ll always cherish. Moments like that make me proud to be in social work and to serve veterans,” Senters said to KSLA.
Willhite died peacefully three days after his last fishing trip.

10 Reasons Why Flu Shots Are More Dangerous Than A Flu

The American Blackout Tips and Tricks
“When it first aired in 2013, NatGeo’s survival show, American Blackout, was a hot topic around the country. It definitely caught the attention of non-preppers from coast to coast. More recently, Ted Koppell wrote about the strong possibility of cyberterrorism taking out our power grid in his book, Lights Out. In our current fragile economy with unrest in so many different sectors, the last thing we need is a long-term, widespread blackout.
“You may have read One Second After or Light’s Out, the novel by David Crawford, and had more than one or two panic attacks, but what have you done to prepare for this worst case scenario and are your survival priorities in their proper order?
