Dear Barfoot Family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

Although I did not have the honor and pleasure of knowing him, as Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Dear Family,
I didn't know your Father, but am a Navy Veteran and appreciate a brave Veteran and his service to his country. God bless him for his display of Patriotism and dedication to all of us. This must make you all proud. May God comfort you all in your loss. Hold on to the memories.

Your Daddy has been a hero for me ever since my Dad introduced me to him in the early 60's at the Fort Lee Golf Course. They were good friends and loved to kid each other. My Dad and mother thought the world of him and I last saw him at my Dad's funeral.
He embodied what every American should try to be. I mostly remember thinking how gentle and kind he was and comparing that to all the awards he had recieved. He was a true treasure and I can only hope that my sons and grand children grow up to be people like your Father. I will miss him. Hopefully he and Dad can play golf again. He was the Real Deal, nothing fake about him. God Bless him.
