1. Oh, my. How sad.

From that article, it sounds like the two of them perfectly complemented each other. What a loss that will be to him.

5. I thought I saw him on MSNBC today. I must have been mistaken.

How terrible to lose your life partner. In the linked obituary, she is referred to as his wife and friend. I am so sorry for his loss.

13. She appears to be his right hand, as well as loving companion.

This will be so hard on him. I am so sorry when a loving couple have to go through the death of one of them, for I know from experience that the absence is there with you every minute of the day, and coping or rising above the pain is an impossibility. I hope someone else that loves him will stand by him and make sure he takes the time to smell the flowers and celebrate her life.
