As individuals of any age, but especially in advanced age - This sad news could serve as a wake-up call.

One thing you should consider is making yourself aware of the possibiity that this could happen to you.

One way to help prepare you would be to familiarize yourself with Atrial Fibrilation or AFib.

    Ever Misplace Your Key Fob? - It might be right under your Nose

    One of our New Corvette owners took his car in for its First Oil Change. He picked up the car at the Dealer and drove off he failed to notice that his Key Fob was not in it's usual spot - In the Cup Holder. When he tried to lock the car, the car would not stay locked and "Beeped" twice to let him know the car wasn't locked. The next day the frustrated owner returned to the dealer (some 50 miles from his house) to ask the service writer where his keys were. The service writer claimed he didn't know but come to find out the "mechanic" who did the oil change, placed the Key Fob in the Key Fob Holder in the steering column that the Vette owner didn't know existed. Did you Know?

    Here is where the Key Fob was found.

    Go here for everything you wanted to know about the operation of your new 2017 Corvette (But were afraid to ask). Be sure to review pages 4 and 5 for safety and security reasons.
