Not sure what to say?

My condolences to the family. May you find refuge with the Most High as you deal with difficult times now and in the future. Psalms 9:9

The shadow has finally grown to full length for a truly great American. One who lived to the fullest extent and saw well beyond what most who have existed would ever experience. A man who not only helped rid the world of fanatical tyranny decades ago but a man who went on to enlighten and inspire generations of young minds. If that doesn't define a great human being, I don't know what does. Rest easy Mr. Tipper. Have a joyous eternity. I'm proud to know you existed.

My sincere condolences to the Tipper
