A former longtime Alabama senator had a chilling final message before he died of COVID-19 last week: “We messed up.”
Larry Dixon, 78, contracted the bug during an outdoors hangout “with a couple of guys” two weeks ago — and his worsening condition left him on a ventilator, his close friend and pulmonologist Dr. David Thrasher told NBC News.
Dixon’s wife, Gaynell Dixon, told Thrasher that her husband issued one final plea before his death.
“We messed up. We let our guard down,” he said, according to Thrasher. “Please tell everybody to be careful. This is real, and if you get diagnosed, get help immediately.”
Dixon, a Republican, represented Alabama’s District 25 in the state Senate from 1983 until 2010, when he retired. He was also a member of the state House and Montgomery City Council.

“Note to self.”
When I am 78 years old …watch out for COVID-19.
This is why it is better to go to a house of mourning than laughter.
Did he and his family think he was going to live forever? Or perhaps he had another thirty years ahead of him? Or he was in the prime of his life?
Hope my last words are not, “We messed up” as I already know the world is sinfully screwed up.
It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart. (Ecclesiastes 7:2)
Look folks at 78 it will be amazing to wake up the next day alive.
