My deepest condolences are extended to the Hudner family for the loss of your dear loved one. May our loving heavenly Father comfort your hearts and make you firm during this difficult time. (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17)

I was fortunate to meet Capt. Hudner when he was Director of Veterans Affairs for Massachusetts.
I met him many times since then and was always impressed with his quiet ways and how accessible he was.

I know I am.
