John T was a special friend. Always had a story to tell. Wade and I loved spending time with him and learning historical things from him. He had personality,knowledge, and the ability to engage you in conversation for hours. Thank you, John T!!!

RIP, TEE! You served in the finest tradition of our warrior-diplomats such as Haig, Dulles, and Powell. Although you never served in the Diplomatic Corps, you navigated with great skill through the likes of the UDC, DAR, Hurtsboro Literary Clio, and the Phenix Citizen. Others too numerous to mentioned. You were my friend and confidant and will be sorely missed.

I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose someone very precious, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. Allow him to give the comfort you need at this time through prayer as he invites us to do at Philippians 4:6, 7 “…in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God;7 and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” He has promised that under his Kingdom rule he will remove sickness, old age, and death from his human family (Isaiah 33:24; Job 33:24, 25; 1 Corinthians 15:26). May you be comforted by these words.
