Bree: My Father Died from Aspiration Pneumonia

I do not fully understand how or why this form of disease would cause a person to die.

Winding River by Sherrill Knaggs, ISN Artist I am writing to seek some information about aspiration pneumonia. My father died from this in September 2004.

It was such a shock to me because my father had not always been very healthy and to know he died from this is really discomforting to me.

I do not fully understand how or why this form of disease would cause a person to die. If there is anyone who has any information, please contact me. Thank You.
