Words cannot express how grateful we are for your efforts and how grieved we are by this triumph of ignorance and hollow mediocrity over authentic virtue. Know that we cherish and treasure you and are extremely grateful for all you have done for us and our country. Our family has decided to make a recurring monthly contribution in your honor to both our state chapter and the national chapter of Common Cause. While us older folk may be done, as it is hard to imagine a reversal of this toxicity to come in our lifetimes, young people do get it, and they will find a way redress the ship and restore America to democracy. What we all need to know is that you won, if not this elected office, the majority of the vote, as well as a unique place in our hearts forever more for your dignity, spirit and fight for right. Human evil has momentarily triumphed. Your example will light the way for the multitudes to follow. And for today that’s all we have, but it’s not nothing. It’s more everything than we currently sense. Thank you. We are so grateful for all you have done for all of us.
