I would like to add my voice to those who felt sorrow when we learned of the passing of Sen. John McCain. Though he could at times be irascible, he was a patriotic American who spent his entire adult life serving his country, as combat pilot, prisoner of war, congressman and finally as senator. I will miss his courage, decency and civility.
Although I did not always agree with his policy positions, I always felt that he was sincere in expressing them. He was a great American, one who set a good example for the rest of us. Rest in peace, Dear Senator!
