Not sure what to say?

Rest Lloyd, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

For Lloyd...


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour...

The late Sen. Bentsen's legacy continues
to be a challenge to all who wish to participate
in the political process from all geographic areas. His thoughtful consideration and depth were without measure. All the while with vision and style.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

Texas could use a man like Lloyd Bentsen again. Please accept my belated condolences.

Mr. Bentsen was an inspiration for good government and servant leadership. His intellect, wit, and wisdom brought good government for all of us. He will be missed.
