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.

I'm just now hearing this. Not that many people find a life partner like this; what a tremendous loss.
