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
