I am sending sincere condolences to the Bookstaff family. Brian Bookstaff is one of the finest men I have ever met, and I may have only met his Dad once or twice, but both parents had to be amazing.
My heart aches for the family at this tough time. - J Vitale

With sympathy at the passing of Manning. I worked with Manning at H&R Block for many years, and Manning often was a student in one tax class or another, where I was the instructor. I remember giving the class an example about claiming a dependent on a tax return, where Manning was my "cute as a button, button-collecting former husband". I find comfort in knowing that he and Dorie are reunited for all eternity.
