I am very sorry for your loss. May God be with the family during this time of grief and sorrow.

I met Bob through his older brother, Ralph, whom I had met at a summer camp for Methodist Church leaders. Bob would often tell the story of taking his driving test in my old car. As adults our paths grew apart but with Bob's entry into the public sphere I was often able to follow him.

Bob taught me an important lesson as a member of the Veteran's Affairs Committee of the House. Even if you detest the war you can still honor the warrior. In fact all too often those who favor the war the most are the ones who do not live up to their responsibility to the warriors. Bob was certainly not one of those.

Bob was one who was always on the side of those who rarely had many people standing with them. He was one of the good guys.

My sincere condolences to Merle, the family, and all who loved and respected him.

Bob made us believe that one person could make a difference in this world. Rest in peace.

I have only gotten to know Bob Edgar since leaving Congress myself. We frequently got together with the Former Democratic Members group, which Bob frequently hosted at Common Cause. Bob Edgar never stopped giving back and serving the public by trying to make our system more accountable. He probably already has a petition drive going in heaven!
