Senator Specter was a wonderful and wise leader and advocate for Pennsylvania. I had the privilege and pleasure of meeting this distinguished
gentleman through professional meetings he led to promote safety throughout the
state. He even held meetings on holidays, so great was his dedication to all citizens of our commonwealth.
The Senator was responsible for bringing millions of grant dollars to our schools, and deserves great appreciation for his unwavering efforts. He was a true role model for all and will be admired throughout time as a tremendous politician. My deepest sympathy to his family; you are in my thoughts and prayers.

My husband and I had the honor of meeting you on a number of occasions. You were always so cordial and welcoming. As Pennsylvanians, we were proud of your commitment and grateful for your actions to benefit the people of this great state. As a senator, you always worked for the good of the people of The United States and did not put partisanshp above what was right for the citizenry.

Thank you, Mr. Specter for your decades of service to our state and country.

May your family find strength and comfort in your love of family and country.

His service not only to the American people , but also to the people of Israel ,and people throughout our world , speaks volumes of his passion for justice , and belief in a more democratic wold community.May Hashem-Gd , comfort his family and friends , with all the mourners of Tzion - VeYerushalayim.

To Senator Arlen Specter's Family:

The Williams' Family would like to send our condolences during your time of sorrow. We know first hand how great of a man; deeply routed in the community Senator Arlen Specter was. I will never forget how he fought for me (personally writing to Girl's High School) to attend Philadelphia High School for Girls when they did not want to accept a female who would be entering as a junior. But because of the late Senator, I graduated, attended Saint Joseph's University and I am now working towards my doctorate degree with Capella University. If Senator Specter did not vouch for me, I do not know where I would be today.

Sorrowfully;

Mary Williams and Family
October 15, 2012
rip mr specter, you fought a good fight now its time to go home where the lord needs a good senator.my deepest sympathy to the specter family .thank you shell kelmer.
October 15, 2012
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Sen Specter was admired for many for having strong principles and standing up for them. He was never a politician, he was always a statesman. He made a difference. Condolences to his loved ones.
October 15, 2012
Senator Specter was an inspiration to me, as I was going through treatment at the same time that he was. I would see him on tv as he was performing the duties of his elected office and I would say that if he could be getting treatments and work each day, so could I ! I always wanted to write a note to him to let him know how, unknowingly, he helped me through my treatments! May he rest in peace.

During this time of sorrow, may the family look to God for comfort and strength. "He will comfort all the mourning ones" Isaiah 61:2

My Prayers goes out to the Specter Family, he will be Truly Missed.
October 15, 2012
As a registered Republican since 1952, Senator Specter was the one solid rock in the Republican Party. He, like me, could no longer stomach our party's direction and leadership. Thank God for men and women like Senator Specter. We need more public officials willing to honor the national interest, particularly when he must go against his Party leadership. We chose similar paths as I have voted a straight Democratic ticket since 2006. Thank You Senator for a life well spent.
October 15, 2012
Mrs. Joan Specter:

I had the pleasure of meeting you in Cherry Hill NJ. at the Sheraton Post Inn. You were so gracious, and spoke lovingly of Sen. Specter. Now as you go from day to day may you feel pride for the years shared with Arlen, and the steadfastness of your bond with him. Praying that peace from the True God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will provide you, solace.

My Condolences,
October 15, 2012
My sincere respects to the family of this highly regarded man. I have admired him for many years for his work in the Senate & felt as long as he was helping "keep the country straight-arrow," we were safer all the way 'round. Great public servant.

October 15, 2012
My deepest sympathy to the family.
October 15, 2012
I didnt realize how badly I would feel about Senator Spector's death. He was just plain decent and a champion for all people regardless of their economic status and party affiliation.

One time I was at his friend Craig Pepper-Victor's house taking care of her children when he called (before cell phones). I remember he said "Hi Craig, Arlen here". I was in such awe but I managed to get out "No, Senator, Craig is not here. Can I have her call you?"

My deepest sympathies to Mrs. Arlen and their family.
October 15, 2012
I wish he could have been our NEXT PRESIDENT if he was a little younger :(

RIP Senator...you will be SADLY MISSED BY EVERYONE!

With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of sorrow. Psalms 46:1 says: God is for us a refuge and strength during difficult times. May God grant you the comfort to endure.
October 14, 2012
As a kid growing up I watched Arlen Specter's impact as a tenacious public defender who used his adversarial skills for the public good. In Congress, he plied the same trade, the same skills deftly, but always for positive purposes. In this, he is a role model for all.

A proud Jew, with a heart and historic mission, his family can find comfort in knowing that most of all, he was yours. He was ours, America's. A fine attorney who channeled his acumen, acuity of intellect, and debating skills for the betterment of society and the State of Pennsylvania. He is already missed, but his example inspires and resonates.
October 14, 2012
To: Senator Arlen Specter family,
You've lost someone who was a special part of your family. May you all find comfort in each other and in all the deep concern that comes to you today.
God Bless,

Sympathy & kindest regards to the Specter family & friends whomever & wherever they may be. God bless 1. God bless all. I met Shanin, Stephen, Joan & Arlen in 1964 when they visited Lock Haven, PA; he was a classmate of Alvin Snowiss of LH at U of PA. It was a special privilege to call this fine family my friends over the years. Like so many, I have many special memories.
The squash ball is in our court. Take care.

October 14, 2012
What a strong advocate for a government, and soon when he wakes up he will be under a governmental rule that will erraticate all his sickness and make his flesh young again and no more mourning or pain anymore.
October 14, 2012

October 14, 2012
To the family, I am very sorry for your loss. Mr. Specter was a man who cared about our veterans. I wrote to him several years ago when the HR department at Coatsville Veterans hospital wanted to release my father, a WW two veteran. He was on a waiting list for the Southeastern Veterans center and his name had not come up soon enough for the staff at Coatsville. My mother was 90 years old and living with me. I could not take care of my father also with his dementia. Within a short time of writing to Mr. Specter, the Coatsville staff became very friendly and my father was permitted to stay until he was admitted to the Southeastern center. I will always be grateful for Mr. Specter's concern and help with my case. Sincerely yours and with sympathy, Gay Paldan
October 14, 2012
