Yes my husband and father of 5 died Nov 25 2012 appox 11pm when helicopter exploded. I was notified by phone 18 hours after his death while my son, Jimmy, 15, learned, his bestfriend ,and Dad died as I cried upon hearing this "robat" tell me "James as died". No "I'm sorry to tell you this by phone"...rather the Deputy said repeatly, "stop talking so loud; I can';t understand you." Then she HUNG UP on me....
James was an experienced helicoter and plane pilot for over 30 years. More importantantly, James was my beloved husband, and beloved father.
I wonder how another would feel if they were notified this cold way.
