July 16, 2016 "To the family of George Voinovich. Collinwood High School was honored with the attendance of all the Voinovich family. George was very special to my late mother, Nancy Walden, and I'm sure she and George will "watch over" all the Slovenian friends and family members in Cleveland. God rest his soul. Sigrid Walden Lamm"
June 25, 2016 "I am Robert L Herbold SR the son of the late Richard (Dick) and Estelle Herbold.
I was born June 1964 in Cleveland Ohio, we where neighbors of the then up-and-coming mayor, Governor, and Senator George Voinovich in the 60s on Crestland Rd. I was surprised and saddened over his passing away. Just 12 months ago I tried to get in touch with him just to tell him how much I admired his success. I tried to call as well as sent him a letter and email to congratulate him on his accomplishments, but was very unfortunate not to be able to get a response from him. His assistant from the University could not give me a reason why, I was very frustrated and deeply disappointed not to even say hello and actually tell himhow I felt, I was very proud of him. that's one phone call I wish I could have had. Even for just one or two minutes. It would have meant the world to me, that's the impact he had on me.
We are so sorry for your loss and I know he was a great family man!
His public service to the state and Country was well served. What a journey and Legacy rest in peace Senator Voinovich Robert Herbold and family" - Robert Herbold (Fernandina Beach, FL)
June 22, 2016 "Dear Voinovich Family,

GVV will be greatly missed by all who knew him; my late parents, Vaclav and Mila and Molly were waiting for him at the gates of heaven. With deepest sympathy to you and your family,
Ludmila Hyvnar" - Ludmila Hyvnar (Cleveland, OH)
June 20, 2016 "I am a lifelong Ohio Democrat who voted for Mr Voinovich every time he ran for office. His integrity, his sincere wish to make his city, state, and country a better place to be, and his respect for all people he served made him a person I was honored to vote for. I shook his hand several years ago while I was supervising a group of juvenile offenders working at Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus. It was as though he was shaking the hand of a friend. He thanked me for my service to youth! He cared about all children and supported efforts to improve their lives. We were privileged to have such a honest and caring individual representing us." - Susan Norman (Westerville, OH)
