Fond Farewell - Dr. Jack Kevorkian
Dignity in Dying advocate, Dr. Jack Kevorkian, has died at age 83. Dr. Kevorkian fought for American freedom and rights at end-of-life. Although his 2008 congressional run in Michigan did not amount in a win, he did receive nearly 9,000 votes. Aside from his end-of-life rights activism, he was also a painter and jazz musician.
