John Dingell in hospice care after cancer diagnosis

Washington — The family of former U.S. Rep. John Dingell said he is in hospice care after a cancer diagnosis, and they are requesting privacy.

The 92-year-old Dearborn Democrat was diagnosed a year ago with prostate cancer that had metastasized and Dingell decided not to treat it, a family member said Wednesday. He recently went into hospice care.

He wrote some parting words on the day he died with help from his wife Debbie

John Dingell: My last words for America
........In my life and career, I have often heard it said that so-and-so has real power — as in, “the powerful Wile E. Coyote, chairman of the Capture the Road Runner Committee.”

It’s an expression that has always grated on me. In democratic government, elected officials do not have power. They hold power — in trust for the people who elected them. If they misuse or abuse that public trust, it is quite properly revoked (the quicker the better).

I never forgot the people who gave me the privilege of representing them. It was a lesson learned at home from my father and mother, and one I have tried to impart to the people I’ve served with and employed over the years........
