I was shocked. I was even more shocked when I discovered that he was only 68-years old! Just 2-years older than I.
I saw him on TV just a few days ago — and it might have been a clip from late Summer. He was walking into a hearing using a walker. Surprised I. I had not realized that he had been infirm. But, I also thought he was older than 68.
He was QUITE the MAN.
Somebody, and we all know who, should do his utmost, if he is capable, of not criticizing or denigrating this great man, in his death, as he has done with John McCain, another national hero. Mr. Cummings was loved and respected across the spectrum. As with John McCain people will not take kindly to any disrespect for him. At tragic loss. We should honor his legacy and try to learn from it.
Thank YOU, Mr. Cummings
