RIP, Senator Rod Grams – 1948-2013

We learned of Senator Rod Gram’s passing this morning. In a recent Fox 9 interview with Grams as he entered hospice in September, this quote stood out to me as an example of Gram’s faith and strength in his final days:

“I always feel my last breath here will be my first breath in heaven, so I’m very comfortable with that.”

I never had the honor of meeting the Senator, but all commenting today remember his intelligence, statesmanship, and caring for others. RIP, Rod Grams – you will be missed.
