Donald Unsworth was a true American patriot. My wife and I just donated to the Mitt Romney campaign in his memory. Thank you for your patriotism and service to our country, Mr. Unsworth. And may you rest in the arms of our Heavenly Father.

I've just returned from the post office. My donation in honor of Donald Unsworth to the Romney-Ryan campaign is winging its way to their Boston headquarters.

God bless Donald Unsforth and his family and God Bless America.

I didn't know Mr. Unsworth, but judging from the brief history given here, and the magnanimous gesture of the family in making the request that donations be made to the candidate running against the incumbent in 2012, I believe he must have been quite a man. I sincerely wish to offer you my condolences for your loss. You and your loved one continue to work for the betterment of America, even long after his passing. God bless you all.

A true patriot and I am sure he will be missed. This was a novel idea and I am sure Rommney will benefit from this. Watch out the dems don't try to vote in his name.

. RIP Mr. Unsworth

This made Facebook about the donation against Barack Obama. I didn't know this gentleman, but his reference in his obituary is making the Georgia Facebook rounds. May I use this reference in one of my articles and honor this man?

I loved reading Mr. Unsworth's obituary. What a novel idea. I will contribute to Mitt Romney's campaign in Mr. Unsworth's memory. What a great way to honor the deceased and help elect a man with American values.

My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Unsworth. I know from personal experience that even after two years, the loss of a loved one is still very real, and the pain still needs more time to heal. I hope for you all that you can take comfort from all the messages of condolence here, and the contributions being made in Mr. Unsworth's name to the Romney campaign. I can guarantee you that many of us - even from here in California - are honoring that request.
