Only he did it in a farewell note to his family and loved ones. Sad to say the least.
"(July 25) -- A doctor who apparently died along with three others when their propeller plane crashed into Lake Michigan Friday morning, penned a moving farewell note to all of the group's family and friends as their Cessna tumbled out of the sky.
Dr. James Hall of Alma, Mich., home to all of the flyers, had been accompanying a cancer patient to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, when their Cessna experienced engine trouble over the great lake. The plane's pilot, Jerry Freed, 66, was pulled from the water just before noon on Friday, but authorities have since given up hope of recovering the other passengers.
The U.S. Coast Guard did, however, recover Dr. Hall's medical bag, which contained a goodbye note penned in the flight's final minutes. Hall's wife, Ann, passed the letter to The Morning Sun newspaper on Saturday. It read: 'Dear All, We love you. We lost power over the middle [of] Lake Michigan and turning back. We are praying to God that all [will] be taken care of. We love you. Jim.'
