Rest In Peace

We lost some great folks in 2006. Let’s take a minute to remember the famous ones: President Gerald Ford, Lloyd Bentsen, Caspar Weinberger, Coretta Scott King, Ann Richards, Patricia Kennedy Lawford, James Brown, Lou Rawls, Betty Friedan, Peter Benchley, William Styron, Mickey Spillane, Maureen Stapleton, Red Buttons, Shelley Winters, Glenn Ford, Don Knotts, Ed Bradley, Steve Irwin, Byron Nelson, Buck O’Neil, Red Auerbach, Floyd Patterson and others.

And then there were our personal losses: family members and friends gone too soon. May they rest in peace.

And gone are tyrants and villains: General Augusto Pinochet, Slobadan Milosevic, Saddam Hussein, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and Kenneth Lay.

Let us grieve for their victims and for the 3002 American soldiers who died in Iraq and the innocent civilians who lost their lives in Iraq and the countless victims of genocide in Darfur.
