This Dying Army Veteran Is Asking For Texts And Phone Calls In His Final Days


Lee Hernandez, a 47-year-old Army veteran, is dying. His body is breaking down even after three brain surgeries. Doctors are befuddled and can't find out what's wrong with him. The best they can do is try and keep him as comfortable as possible as he passes away.

We're all going to die one day. No matter how much we refuse to face it. No matter how much we don't want to look at it, our inevitable end is looming around the corner. So you've got to make the most out of life while you have it, or something like that, right?

For Lee, he just wants to talk to people in his final moments. After handing his phone to his wife, Ernestine Hernandez, he asked her to hold onto it in the event that someone called him. For two hours, his phone was silent. Lee then turned to his wife and said, "I guess no one wants to talk to me."
