My condolences to Gov. Holshouser's family. May he always rest in peace with Our Lord Savior Jesus Christ. I appreciate Gov. Holshouser's pioneering effort and the historical significance he holds in the North Carolina Republican Party. I am glad I had the opportunity to meet Gov. Holshouser while on the job at Moore Co. offices. He was a very nice man.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Gov Holshouser.

We are grateful for his many contributions to N.C.

As the first Republican NC governor in the 20th century, he changed the direction of our state.

Our prayer is God will comfort you in the time of sorrow.

So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Family and friends will be lifted up in much prayer in the coming days. I pray that the memories that bring tears to your eyes and pain in your heart will soon bring a smile to your lips and warmth in your heart. God Blessings to All...

Ginny, my deepest condolences to you, my brother. Marilyn texted me the news this afternoon. Holly wrote such a sweet note on Facebook. I am thinking of and praying for all of you.

I enjoyed meeting the governor in Kansas City at the GOP national convention. After introducing him to two of my daughters who were with me, he said in perfect humor, "Dallas, you must have a beautiful wife because these girls don't look anything like you." I am glad to read more of his life and background with this obituary. Bless his family and those enriched by his life.

While Mr. Jim was Governor, I was allowed to have a special meeting face to face with him in Wilmington. When he instituted a week in which the public could visit the NC prisons, I took advantage, and because of Jim's honorable interest in the citizens of this state, I obtained much at the hands of this Governor.
After Jim's time was over, I had the honor of obtaining a former Assistant attorney General of 'my special Goveror' who went to bat to defend me and by that Attorney's know how and honorable ability caused Green Springs Boys Club Inc to be allowed to function and especially to obtain a much sought after permit to build a swimming pier for the thousands of kids that have by now swam from this pier.

I write this simply because Mr. Jim, er Governor Jim was what I believed a Governor should have been. He has always had a special place in my heart, and I want everyone to know that I, an unknown possibly, really had an awful lot of love and respect for this special man. My, don't I wish we had more like him.

Jenny,
I am sorry for you and your family's loss. I have many found memories of you and your father at First Presbyterian Church in Raleigh.

It is with great sadness that I learned of Gov. Holshouser's passing. He was instrumental in opening my eyes to the process of democracy in our nation during his campaign for governor. I have always respected his willingness to mentor young college students.
