Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

As Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

This was the best grandfather anyone in the history of mankind could ask for. He was always there when I needed him, and I always tried to be available to him if he needed me. Not a day will go by that something doesn't randomly remind me of him and his burning passion for his family. He was dedicated to his family, and essentially worked himself to death fixing up his and my grandmother, Edilia's, house. He will be missed by many, and I hope we never forget on how he impacted our lives.
