CARES AND CONCERNS
Thank you to Dennis Baggett, son of retired Delta Captain L. Merle Baggett, 98, for sending us the sad news of his death Wednesday, October 24th.  Captain Merle was the oldest living "originally hired by Delta" pilot at 98+ years and was still very active even though Macular Degeneration had ended his driving capability.  He had no difficulty getting rides to activities though and was warmly welcomed by all of us who loved and respected him.  He was a stalwart Alpha Soda ROMEO breakfast meeting member and loved Delta Golden Wings.  Expressions of condolence may be sent to the family at:  Merle Baggett, 7920 Chancery Ridge, Duluth, GA 30097

Good morning Dave. I hope all is well with you and yours.

I’m sorry to have to tell you that Dad passed away yesterday morning. The last several weeks have been a blur of hospitalization (3 hospitals and 3 ambulance rides in the first 48 hours of this episode) and rehab as he fought off 3 infections (another UTI, cdiff and ecoli), and had both a temporary and permanent pacemaker implanted.

He was transferred from St Joseph’s Hospital to Dunwoody Rehab last Wed and was making very good progress (as usual). Yesterday, after a restful night’s sleep and a good breakfast, he was in good spirits and eager to proceed with the first PT session of the day.

While walking down the hall with the therapist, he suddenly collapsed. CPR and a trip to the St Joe’s ER were to no avail. He was w/o a pulse and non-responsive from the moment he collapsed in that hallway, so he passed away suddenly and without delay – pretty much the way he had hoped for (#1 choice was to simply sit down for a nap and ride that recliner off to heaven, but short of that, I know that he would be quite satisfied with checking out while taking a stroll).

We will be working on funeral arrangements today and I will update you when finalized . Please pass the word to the group and remember Dad in your prayers. 

Dennis Baggett
