I had the rare privilege of meeting Mr. Sorensen in May of 2008. I had flown from Denver just to hear him speak at a special event at the JFK library. He signed copies of his last book. As I approached him I asked him if I could "shake the hand that shook the hand." He smiled and said "how sweet" and shook my hand. He talked to me a few more minutes. It was one of the highlights of my life. It was the closest I would ever come to meeting John Kennedy. I admire Mr. Sorensen and all that he did to take the office of the President to a higher level. His words will continue to live on.

I wish I could have been old enough, and in a place to have known the two great "proliles". Our great ones and their little notes have all been stored away. And we will only have the books to remember the special people and the special "words" they spoke to read. You were so lucky to have first hand knowledge and hear it from the best. Thinking of you in prayers. Phyllis Lowman, Casar, N.C.

One lasting thought in “Counselor” was that Mr. Sorensen was lucky to have been at the right place and the right time…to be hired by a young Senator in 1952. And he was. All Americans--all the world--were lucky to have had Mr. Sorensen’s intellect and moral courage during the Kennedy Administration and beyond. All the world knows of Mr. Sorensen…his written word and vision, will always be with us.

I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Sorensen three times in Lincoln between 2000 and 2008. He was a great American, a brilliant writer and a very nice man.
Rest in Peace, Counselor.

Dear Gillian and family,
I am so saddened at the loss of this great man...and so grateful to have had Ted as a part of my lifetime. I remember so well your beautiful wedding...it was filled with a sense that the two of you were meant to be together for life...and so it was.
I'm sorry we lost touch Gillian...but I am grateful to have played a small part in his senatorial campaign...one of my fondest memories of him was sitting in the Binghamton airport, waiting for a delayed plane...and to listen to him discourse with so much wisdom. I have kept his thank you note framed for these many years
We were blessed with his life!
I send my heartfelt sympathy and love.
Pat
When things settle a bit, it would be lovely to spend a little while catching up with each other

His words will always be a part of history. I am sorry to hear about the loss of such an inspirational man.

I had a chance to meet Mr Sorenson at a conference at the JFK library, my lasting impression of the man and his humor were apparent when I asked him to sign the program for the event he said to me ," it's times like these I wish my name was Ted Gup instead of Theodore Sorenson ". this due to his unsteady hand and failing eyesight a shorter name would have been preferred. I have read his books and find his insight and wisdom must have been cherished by JFK.
We should all be so lucky to have a friend and advisor like Ted Sorenson in our lives.
November 01, 2010
To the Sorensen family, my deepest sympathy on the loss of this truly great man. His words and character inspired my generation. May he rest in peace with the angels.

Global Kids mourns the loss of our good friend Ted Sorensen. For the past six years, Ted met with our youth participants to share his personal story and recount his experiences as counselor to President Kennedy, and, later, as a distinguished international attorney and advisor to world leaders. Ted inspired the Global Kids -- all teens from NYC public schools, and they inspired him – providing assurance that today’s young people are keenly interested in world affairs and committed to public service. It was a privilege and honor to call Ted Sorensen a friend. We will miss him, but we will never forget him.

God touched his very soul with great talent. What a great loss to mankind.
May he rest in peace. Hopefully the family will find comfort for having him in their lives.

What a great man. What a rich life. What a profound legacy. I have recently read Counselor. Absolutely extraordinary. It's a shame that such a great soul left us. They don't make them like that anymore.
May he rest in peace. Hopefully, now he has already reunited with his hero, and does not have to dream about him anymore.

My condolences to the Sorensen Family. May the God who gives comfort to all who mourn, fill our hearts with peace at this time of sorrow. (2Cor. 2:3,4)

My sympathy to the Sorensen Family. He worked very hard for President Kennedy and his country. We are forever grateful to him. May he rest in peace.
November 01, 2010
Although I wasn't born until 1967, i grew up with parents STRONGLY influenced by Kennedy's vision. I too am always inspired when I read or hear those speeches to this day. What an amazing legacy to leave behind.
I hope have a good place in heaven near all those who died helping this country and society to be better than it was. All of you did well for my generation. Thank you.
November 01, 2010
My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I had the pleasure of having lunch with you and Ted at the Renaissance Weekend two years ago. It was an honor and a privilege.

May the God of comfort and tender mercies continue to comfort your family and friends, and may you find comfort in the words found in the Holy Scriptures: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."" Please accept my sincere condolences during this time of your loss.

To the Sorensen Family - I always enjoyed Mr. Sorensen's stories and insights through the years. Whenever he was scheduled to appear on an interview show, I made it a point to see it. I purchased "Counselor" last year, and loved it. Thank you for sharing him with the nation.
