Not sure what to say?

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one, who will be remembered for her contribution to journalism. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of mourning.

I would like to say well done thy good and faithful servant, everyone loved you, but the lord god loves you best.

I always admired Cokie Roberts and her political commentaries. She did herself proud and helped the cause of women in American journalism for a number of years. I was looking forward to her comments when the 2020 presidential election season got underway. Sadly, that is not to be. I will miss Cokie very much in the days ahead.

My condolences to the family of a fellow Louisianaian

I am truly sorry about the passing of your loved one. May God strengthen your family during this time of loss. Deepest sympathies.

Steve, Lee, Rebecca, and All Family,

Its with saddened hearts that we learn of Cokies passing, and we send our deepest sympathy and condolences to you during this most difficult time.

Cokie will be remembered, and all her positive qualities and activities will also be remembered. She will be fondly remembered for her kindness, generosity, vivacious personality and love of life. Her infectious smile and vibrant personality and upbeat spirit could definitely light up any...

I am sorry for your loss. Cokie was loved by many, she will be greatly missed.

We saw Cokie last at the Louisiana Book Festival, in Baton Rough, three years ago, and talked then about her late Mother ~ every New Orleanian's friend, Lindy Boggs. I bought an older book (1998) of Cokie's for my Sister, WE ARE OUR MOTHER'S DAUGHTERS.

I was born the same year as Cokie, and it is heartening, if not true, to hear how young that is to be passing on to the great editor in the sky. We will miss you, mon amie, for however many years we have left, and then maybe get you...

Condolences to the family of Cokie Roberts. My Mom and my aunt's attended St Louis Cathedral School in New Orleans. Two of my aunt's became Teresian Sisters and taught school there. My Mom worked there as the school secretary. They all knew Lindy who lived a few blocks away and thought highly of her. They have all passed on. Welcome to the great reunion in heaven. I know that had a big party in heaven for Cokie.
