Today is a sad day, the final earthly journal of a man who gave so much to this country and its development. One of the reasons I have become so passionate about politics.
May he rest in peace. May God comfort and strengthen his family during this time. In the midst of all the public outpouring may they find the quiet time to reflect and to mourn the loss of their loved one; who after all of the pageantry remains for them a husband, a father, an uncle, a grandfather, a friend.
