Thank you, Paul Weyrich.
Paul Weyrich has passed away. The world is diminished by his absence. I first saw him on TV about 14 years ago. He had a program on his satellite station, NET Network. I greatly admire his integrity and his character. When I started to feel cynical, or despaired the lack of honor and honesty in politics it was the thought that he was active and respected in politics that helped keep me from giving up on the country. I did not share his religious beliefs but I greatly respected his uncompromising devotion to his faith. He was a credit to his church and a blessing to this country. I wish I knew of another of his caliber.
Thank you, Sir, for all that you have done for America and all that you have unknowingly given to me. You have inspired me with your character and wisdom and set a standard I have and will strive to honor, though I can never match it. May you find peace and rest.
