I’ve been thinking of him so much lately and how much I wish he was our Gov, with Monty as LTG. What a difference we’d have right now, on so many levels.
I only knew him as a candidate in his most recent run, but I spoke with him a number of times, and read everything about him. I think he really was ahead of his time.
I am sad to hear this news, and beam love and light to his family and loved ones. I hope good memories bring you peace.
