December 12, 2012 "Just stumbled on this today. Many thanks to all for kind words and memories." - L. Scott Eagleburger (WI)
June 17, 2011 "It was with great sadness that I learned of Secretary Eagleburger's passing. Years ago when he was the Deputy Secretary, I was honored to be responsible for his security during the first Gulf War and occasionally, up to the time he became the Secretary of State. Not only was he among the most brilliant people I have met, but also one of the funniest. Much has been said about his legendary sense of humor.
I have just a one short story of many. On one overseas trip the elevator we were riding stopped between floors. While directing the maintenance personnel how to remove the doors of the elevator, I muttered "well I guess there goes my transfer to San Salvador", without missing a beat, he replied "San Salvador? Ouagadougou is too good for you", immediately breaking the tension amid much laughter. He was a great man, and I was honored to be taken into his confidence for an all too short period of time." - Daniel McElwee (Falls Church, VA)
June 16, 2011 "Hi Marlene and Millie: So sad to hear of Larry's passing. Please send me your address. After Mom passed on, lost all records. Would love to stay in touch, so enjoyed our visit a few years ago. My E mail is 480-832-5355." - Margie Heinemann-Graziano (Mesa, AZ)
June 11, 2011 "Dear Scott, Drew, and Jason,
It was an honor, privilege and absolute pleasure knowing your dad. Larry was truly a remarkable person, no pretense, comfortable in his own skin and always willing to listen. His passing is not only a personal loss but a tremendous loss for our country! We miss him, he will always hold a very special place in our hearts. We are here for you if you should need us." - Ralph and Jacci Johnson (Asheboro, NC)
June 07, 2011 "Thank you for your service Mr. Eagleburger. You were a true patriot who performed at the highest level. I Would like to have shared a beer with you. They should have broken the mold when you were done. To your family, my deepest sympathy." - Richard Picone (Las Vegas, NV)
