I had the pleasure of meeting Gene Patterson many years ago at a presentation he made to some students. He was outstanding in his presence (respectful to everyone, articulate in his delivery and a beacon of ethics). I will never forget one statement he made--"We, in this business, need to wrestle everyday with whether this story is worth telling--not to belittle someone, not to ruin their personal lives--but whether there is some larger social good that will come from it"!! My sympathies to his family and friends--he was a remarkable person.

When someone you love dies it can be an overwhelming experience. Draw comfort from the God of all comfort who can give needed comfort and advice to you at this time. (Isaiah 32:1-2) I offer my condolences to the family.

Dear Mr. Patterson, I have not met you but I honor your honesty and integrity. You are a guiding light of the times and stand as tall as Dr. Martin Luther King. You believed in all people, when others were afraid to speak. Thank you!
