    RSVP DAVE ! AND HAVE TO SAY THEY DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE THAT ANYMORE AND ONE OF THE LAST GENTLEMAN POLITICIANS WHO ACTUALLY CARED AND IT SHOWED IN HIS MANNER AND STYLE. IN YEARS PAST HAD OCCASION TO VISIT HIM AT HIS HOME, DELIVER BOOKS TO THE MORA LIBRARY WHICH WAS NAMED IN HIS HONOR AND EVEN SHARE A CUP OF COFFEE AND LISTEN TO HIS WORLD TRAVELING TALES AND WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM AS THE MOST DOWN TO EARTH AND GENUINE NICE GUY POLITICIAN THAT I WILL EVER HAVE OCCASION TO MEET. MAY GOD BLESS AND LOOK AFTER HIM, AS, IN MY OPINION, WE HAVE LOST A "GREAT" HUMAN BEING AND MAY HE REST IN PEACE !
