The saying, “Better late than never” has often been said in regards to a variety of situations. It can refer to a late apology, receiving a late birthday gift, even a confession of something that happened years ago; the result culminating in some solution or ending. In this case, the saying is referring to the cause of death of Sandy Dahl, who died in May of this year at the age of 52.
NY Daily News: Sandy Dahl of Denver, Colorado looks at the image of her husband Pilot Jason Dahl etched on a memorial for Flight 93 crew members at the Shanksville Chapel for Flight 93.
She was the widow of Jason Dahl, who piloted Flight 93 and ended up being hijacked on 9/11. She fought for years to live on past that tragic day and made a life for herself by helping others. Sadly, her life ended in May by what the coroner said was acute heart failure brought on by the combined effects of multiple prescription drugs and alcohol.
Carl Blesch, the Jefferson County chief deputy coroner said it was an accidental death and not suicide
