Dear Merle, I am deeply shocked and saddened by Bob's untimely death. Please know that Rachel's and my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family in this most difficult time. Bob found so many effective ways to do God's work in both the secular and religious worlds and I have consciously tried to emulate him in the decades since I worked with him on Capitol Hill from 1977 - 1982. During that period when Bob served first as a founding Member and then as Democratic Co-Chairman of the bi-partisan Northeast-Midwest Congressional Coalition, he showed us all how to get the people's work done starting with high quality, non-partisan policy research followed by patient consensus-building across the political aisle and with often-contentious constituencies outside the Beltway. He was a vitally important mentor to me and countless other staff and Members - helping us all internalize and stay true down the years to a powerful moral compass. He has been and continues to be a huge inspiration to me and, I fervently hope, to us all. - Tom Cochran, Former Executive Director and Former Board Chair, Northeast-Midwest Institute

Bob always said "We are the people we've been waiting for!" A good and faithful servant is Present with the Lord and spurring us on even today, to make a difference. For the dear ones he leaves behind, my prayers are with you in the midst of your grief.

Even though I do not know him personally, his contribution is felt and will be missed. Romans 15:33.

Three days before Christmas in 1979, Congressman Edgar drove from Washington to Drexel Hill, PA to marry my husband and me because my father had asked him to perform the ceremony. I couldn't believe he would go to so much trouble, especially right before Christmas & he said he did it because he thought the world of my father (Carl E. Mau of Media). I've never forgotten his kindness.

I worked for Bob when he represented PA-7, from 1978-1982,he gave the blessing at my wedding on April 25, 1981. He was a wonderful person to work for and with, he will be surely missed by all who knew him. The heaven's are fuller with Bob now there. My prayers are with his family!
