Read this and listen to the communication http://www.eaa.org/news/2012/2012-04-05_vuksanovic.asp and when you have recovered from listening to this cool old lady start considering the pinch-hitter concept once again! If you know just a little bit about how to keep the aircraft flying you have a lot larger chance to survive a situation like the one 80-year old Helen ended up in when her husband died beside her in probably a heart-attack at the controls in mid-air.
Your most frequent right-seat passenger ought to be able to handle a situation like this one.
Grand old lady!!
