On Feb. 28, I heard a gentleman passed away at age 76 down south. He also had a pacemaker. His body was put in a body bag and sent to a funeral home for cremation.
When an employee came to unzip the bag, the body inside started kicking the bag. They called family to tell them he's still here. The doctor who pronounced him dead made a mistake. The pacemaker failed. It needed a new battery.
I'll be 76 on Aug. 27. I've had a pacemaker since 2010.
So after hearing this, I'll be carrying an Energizer battery with me at all times, a note pinned to my chest that tells anyone or everyone if I die, check battery in pacemaker and replace with new Energizer and call my doctor.
