A 92-yer-old World War II veteran has died two months after singing at his own living wake in Michigan.
Johnny Wearing had been battling liver cancer for years and learned in August that it has worsened - causing doctors to tell him he only had a few weeks to months left to live.
The father and grandfather was first saddened by the news, but then decided to host a goodbye celebration where he could see his friends and family from all over country, for likely one last time, the Detroit Free Press reported.
And of course, his friends, including the children of his fellow World War II bomber crew members, and family showed up in strong numbers in an effort to make the veteran happy.
During the living wake hosted at the Walter F. Bruce VFW Post in St. Clair Shores, Wearing sipped from a glass of white wine while simultaneously saying thank you and farewell to those who mattered the most to him.
'I am so happy so many folks are here and are having a good time,' Wearing told the crowd of family and friends, the newspaper reported.
