I write this with a thoughtful soul knowing I can never do justice to people who believed in me by a simple note of “thanks.” Your belief in me, tangible in time, effort, and money invested in me, will be the most cherished memory I will keep from my time in politics. And that memory will find a home in the grandest sepulcher of all, the heart of a man enriched by the service of others.
I did not reach our journey of U.S. Senate to have been able to return your service by serving America, again. But I am so much richer for having met you in your gift of faith in me. Please know I will remain indebted, always, for your trust that I might have served our country, honorably.
Thank you… and warmly,
