My heart and prayers are with the family.
Your father, Strom Thurmond was a great
educator and leader.
I contacted him over twenty years ago asking
him to write a letter of encouragement to my
Elementary Math class. He wrote a letter, included
A photo and also took the time to contact me
At school. I admire the love and devotion you
Had for your father.
God Bless
