Our hearts and our prayers go out to the family of our dear United States Congressman, Paul Gillmor. I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been for his wife to tell his three young boys about the death of their father; that has been heartbreaking for me. I was shocked to learn the news from Shayne today when I checked in with him on my lunch break. (Skip was the Chairman of the Board at Shayne's bank.) I will never forget his kind words as he came through the visitation line at the funeral home. I can't even imagine how hectic his schedule is and yet - there he was - at Christi's visitation. Too sweet! The loss of the Congressman to our area is nothing short of catastrophic.

You were the first person I thought of when I heard of the news today - I know you had posted about him in the past. Prayers for his family and for yours also.

As soon as I heard this news on WFIN (Findlay's local AM), I had to come over here to make sure it was really true. I knew that you would have a loving tribute to him.

Such a sad, sad loss. He was right here for the flood victims a few weeks ago...

I'm so terribly sorry to hear about your friend. His family will be in my prayess.

All my love,
