It was only months later when I learned that General Haig had passed away. He was a great military leader and statesman. I was a Lieutenant in Nurnberg, Germany when he was Supreme Allied Commander of Europe in the late seventies. At Major General George Patton's funeral, General and Mrs. Haig sit next to me at Fort Meyer Chapel and I will always remember that honor. Having a deep devotion to Jesus Christ and his Blessed Mother for their guiding powers, it made me so happy that General Haig's funeral was at the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, my favorite church. They most certainly had an influence in his life and he is with them today in heaven. May God give you strength and peace in the years ahead.

I played Tennis with "Al" (call me Al - NOT General!) and tried to set-up his body guards. They said Al doesn't want personal security with all he has survived (e.g. a very recent bomb in Brussels!). Al wrote us an invitation to stay at his chalet to play more tennis, but we truly "missed" that one.
We loved his IQ & wonderful sense of humor!

For Alexander...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

Gen. Haig showed respect for all people regardless of their stature in life. My Father was his Field Artillery instructor when he was a cadet, and I was Brian and Alex's babysitter at West Point in the '50s when I was 13. He always remembered when back at the Point. He'll always be missed.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
Dear family of Alexander Haig,
My deepest condolence to you all. He truly was an amazing individual. I believe that this country and the world have lost a great person.
He and my uncle graduated from West Point together and spent much time reminiscing and talking either by email or on the phone before my uncle passed away last year.
Be comforted to know that he is with all the Saints that have gone before him.

Dear Haig family, We send our deepest condolences to your family. What an amazing, talented, committed and brilliant man your husband and father was. More men and women should strive to be like him.

Mrs. Haig,
Shocked to learn that my dear friend and Great friend of China, General Haig has left us. It's a great lost for the US and China as well. I got to know the General 40 years ago since late 1971 when he took the advanced trip to China for preparing President Nixon's visit. General Haig is a remarkable man. He has dedicated his life to the US and contributed so much for the bilateral relation between our two great nations. GeneralHaig will live in our hearts forever.
Dear Mrs. Haig, Please accept our deepest condolence and take good care of yourself.

Dear honorable late Gen. Alexander Haig Jr.
You have saved the free South Korea from communist control with Gen. MacArthur.
Since you pass away, we who are for keeping the free Korea are deeply in sorrow.
We are praying to God for your keeping of your soul and spirit. Your body has gone into the earth, but your spirit for hope continues on earth and keeps freedom.
Also your spirit will be destroying communism and North Korean totalitarianism.
We will pray to God for your Soul and for your family.

I served under Alexander M Haig Jr. when he Commanded the 1/26th Infantry Regiment in Vietnam. We received our C.I.B.'s on the same day in January, and fought together in the battle of AP GU, March 31 - April 1, 1967 which earned him the Distinguished Service Cross. I was proud to have served under his Command and to have served Our Country together. We had an oppotunity to reunite in 1999 at a 1/26th Regimental Reunion in New Orleans. My deepest condolences to the Haig family.
February 25, 2010
Please accept my condolences. Death is difficult I hope you find comfort in these scriptures 2Cor 1:3-6
February 25, 2010
I had a good fortune of getting to know General Haig through my association with a Japanese biotech company where he served as a director.

I remember an evening in Tokyo more than three years ago on the occasion of a board meeting... I could not believe that he was as personable and talkative as he was because my previous impression had been a man of strong military prowess. I miss his warm smile from that evening.

May he rest in peace.
February 25, 2010
Too many of our true American Patriot's are leaving us. Mr. Haig had always had America's best interest in his mind and heart. He will be trely missed.

I meet Al when he was the G3, 1st Infantry Division. I was the Division Commander's Aide at the Time. We spent a lot of time togeher while flying with the CG and in the Division Staff meeting and conferenes. Back then Al was a LTC and a great soldier.

To Mrs Patricia Haig: I am devastated by the loss of the former Supreme Allied Commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Gen. Alexander Meigs Haig, your wonderful husband and a friend to all Americans! Alexander rivals the stature of Alexander the Great (333 B.C.). His greatness was that of a Warrior/Statesman devoted to Peace...and not war! I plan to fly to Washington DC for his funeral! In honor opf the General, I am playing, at this writing, the music of Antonin Dvorak, titled "The American Suite" in honor of the General's memory and his contributions to America in the last qurater of the 20th century! Rest well Alexander,...well done...pass thru the gates.
February 25, 2010

I served at S.H.A.P.E Belgium under the General and was very impressed with his power when he replaced General Andrew Goodpaster. Man, General Haig was awesome when he walked the halls of S.H.A.P.E. with all allied military personnel behind him. He reminded me of "Alexander The Great" General Haig was a great American as well as a kind man I will always respect his decisions he made and will continue to be a great role model to me. "May He Rest In Peace"
February 23, 2010
Our country has suffered a true loss. General Haig was a brilliant strategist and a true hero to me and many others. While he served under President Nixon, I was serving in the United States Marine Corps. General Haig, will be missed, my sincere condolences to the entire family.

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.

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.

General Haig is one who believed in the united States. God Bless you Sir, see you on the other side of this life.
February 22, 2010
The saddle lays empty with boots swinging low in the stirrups. Strains of TAPS fills the soft breeze as your spirit parades one last time against the backdrop of a grateful nation. "Eyes right," the troops will shout! An American General for the ages is passing.

So long General Haig ... a true Mighty Man of Valor.

Rest In Peace.

Cousin Pat and family,

We were saddened to learn of General Haig’s passing. As is always the case when a great man passes, the loss is shared by the entire nation. Our deepest condolences are accompanied by the hope that the memories of a life filled with extraordinary successes, remarkable achievements and immeasurable contributions to our nation, bring some measure of comfort to you during these trying days.
February 22, 2010
A really valiant trooper during some great difficulties. We should have more as loyal as he was to America. May the God of all peace comfort his family.

General Haig was a person of character and a true leader. See you on the other side, Sir!
February 22, 2010
Both as a military man and government official, Gen. Haig was a man of character and a patriot. May he rest in peace.
February 22, 2010
There are too few individuals like Alexander Haig. And there are less and less of them coming into being. God help this nation that we cannot have the men of virtue, excellence, devotion, and belief in God that General Haig represented. His death is an incaculable loss.
February 22, 2010
I remember Gen Haig when he was in NATO. He would come in to see the Chairman of the JCS (where I worked)and
would always sit by my desk and talk with me. He was a very kind man.
At all times in his military career and later - he was always a soldier first. We are proud of him and shall miss him.
February 22, 2010
I always appreciated and admired Mr Haig for his dignity, honour and leadership for our country. My sympathies for the Haig family and loved ones. The Lord comfort you all with the comfort Jesus richly gives.
February 22, 2010

Our thoughts and prays are with all of you. The General was a great man. Although we have never met I am General Haig's 3rd or 4th cousin. My great grandfather was William Alexander Haig.

February 22, 2010
I was fortunate to have worked with Gen. Haig in Belgium at SHAPE as his
aircraft security chief. My wife at the
time was his social and appointments
secretary. He was like a father figure to us, not a General. I wish his family well and cherish my memories
of service with him.
February 22, 2010
Mr. Haig was a man with initiative. Rest in peace sir.
February 22, 2010
God has called home a tireless soldier to his eternal rest. May the Lord keep the family in His love and grace. My deepest condolences on your loss.
February 22, 2010
Dear, Brian, Barb, and Alex.
Losing my father was one of the hardest things I have ever had to face.
I know you must be feeling the same way right about now.
All I can offer is that over time the pain will ease. Your memories of him will live on.
I hope you find it a comfort to know that so many Americans think highly of your dad. To me, your dad was indeed one of the greats.

God Bless.
February 22, 2010
General Haig was blessed with a wonderful devotion to God, country and family. He was the epitome of what a true American gives to the people of the world.

General Haig should be remembered for not only his dedication to public service, but that of a Soldier-Statesman of the first order. This, with the distinction of serving some of the 20th century's most notable men in different/varying capacities (MacArthur, Nixon, Reagan) and the troops he led in combat, were more than proof of his outstanding leadership qualities.

GEN Haig,
You inspected my orderly room in Battery C, 3/84th FA in Neckarsulm, Germany in 1974. As a SP4, I was scared spitless as the top-ranking officer in Europe was coming to tour our Artillery Kaserne. I never saw 4 stars on a soft-cap before and as you entered the office, you raised your hand to shake, but I freightenedly raised my hand and threw it into a salute which you promptly returned. You were cool, calm and collected and you make me feel that we were all part of the forces that were defending freedom in Europe and the world. As a draftee, my life was drastically changed but I fulfilled my military destiny and made my family, friends and fellow service members proud. I always wanted to meet you again. Thank you for your leadership.
February 21, 2010
Didn't know the man personally, but held him in high regard. Would have been an honor just to shake his hand. A true gentleman and patriot. Rest in Peace
February 21, 2010
rest in peace you are all american hero a true patriot served his country.
February 21, 2010

Dearest Brian

I am so sorry to learn of your dad's passing. He was truly one of the world's greatest men.

While I never knew him personally as General Haig, I did know him as the father of one of my favorite authors, and a customer in the bookshop. What a sweet man! I remember one day he and his brother came into the store and he said he wanted to make sure we had his son's books and that one was in the window. Of course, we had all of the books and the latest one was, indeed, in the window. That made him so happy. Always know that he was so very proud of you! His face just lit up when I told him that his son was one of our favorite authors and that we would always have his books in the store.

Brian, know that we at Classic Bookshop in Palm Beach, along with the whole world, are all thinking of you and sharing your grief as you reflect on the life of this great man. He will never be forgotten and his spirit will live on forever in those who loved him the most - his family. Be strong and take good care of your beautiful mom, and please extend my personal condolences to her.

Love to you and your family.
February 21, 2010

February 21, 2010
Patricia: I'm so sorry to hear of the lost of your husband. Sixty years of marriage is something that you don't hear of much anymore. We know that marriage is a sacred institution by God and I applaude you. I'm also sure that you will miss your husband of that many years. No matter who we are or what position we hold in the world the eventuality of us all is death. (Ecclesiastes 3:19) The good news is death is not the end of it all, the bible promises " There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." ( Acts 24:15) and Jesus himself said:" The hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. " (John 5:28,29) Come out to a beautiful, peaceful new world with perfect health where there will be no more sickness, old age or death. (Revelation 21:3,4) Turn to God in prayer and he will sustain you.

In the early 1970's we lived across the street at Ft. McNair next to the tennis court and were always so very proud of our neighbor General Haig. We didn't get to see him much once he went to the White House and worked such long hours. He is an American hero, and we are very sad to know of his death. Our sincerest sympathy to Mrs. Haig and Brian and Barbara and all the extended family. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We are grateful for the life and legacy of General Haig.

While shopping at Publix Palm Beach, we turned at the end of an isle and the General and Mrs. Haig were coming toward us. We all said hello to each other and chatted for a few minutes. When we were about to continiue, I whispered in his ear "We Listen to our masters voice" His response was a laugh and a "you bet".

General Haig was a strong figure in the wake of the weakness in leadership America experienced in the late 1970's. He was part of the resurrection of pride America experienced in the early '80s. I met General Haig on the Trump Shuttle 20 years ago - he was very down to Earth and had a story for all - a fascinating man. I'd like to extend my deepest appreciation for his service as a true American patriot and also my sympathies to the Haig family in this time of sorrow.
February 20, 2010
So sorry to hear of such a great person as Alexander Haig passing away my brother and his wife Tom and Aurora Birch, spoke so highly of your family and what a great accomplished and good person he was.

I served on Active duty while Al was doing his thing in Washington. He really was a man of leadership qualities. he knew what he wanted and he knew how to motivate people. He caught hell for his comments in the White House but I remember it well. He was the ONLY person with any leadership in town and he took command until things came back to order. he was a superb leader and a soldier that anyone should have felt comfortable about going into battle with. He will be missed. He is from the old scholl of leadership...Lead, Follow or get the Hell out of the Way....

I first met General Haig in 1983 when I became Secretary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., on whose Board of Directors General Haig served until 2005.

I always looked forward to the conversations we would frequently have following Board meetings, during which he would generously share his thoughts on national and world events as well as his reminiscences of his many years of military and public service.

Although our political views often differed, I liked and admired him greatly and considered him a kind and generous friend.

I am saddened by his death and offer my sincere condolences to his family.

Among the great honors of my life has been working with this incredible American Military Officer and statesman from his years as a Colonel, General, and Secreatry of State. He was easy to work with, awesomely credible, astutely knowledgeable, great to work with in India and Pakistan and a genuine human. He will be missed.

So sorry for the loss of your dear loved one.

You can feel that Death can leave a heartache that nothing can heal, just know that Love can leave a memory that no one can steal.

A true American Leader!

I knew him when he was the NATO forces commander and later as a neighbor when he was Pres. of UA in Connecticut. One of the most outstanding individuals to ever have served in the military and politically in Washington. Men such as these don't happen very often. May the General rest in ever lasting peace. He deserves the admiration of our nation.
