Miss you already Maya Rush I. Been with you since the beginning. My heart is broken for Kathryn, David, Mr Snerdly, the Limbaugh Family, The Extended Family and the millions of Rush's "Extended Family". We have lost our conservative rudder in this crazy storm that we call life. I treasure the photo that I have of us behind your golden EIB microphone. You will not be forgotten Rush. We Love You. Rest easy my Friend with our Lord and Saviour until He comes back to take us all home.

A heartfelt salute to Rush for his unique conservative voice in America for 30+ years. Rush boldly took the conservative baton from Ronald Reagan, carried it forward as only he could do and enlightened the rest of us. His “common-sense intelligence guided by experience” voice led the conservative movement across this great land we love - and for this, I’m truly grateful. I listened to Rush for over 20 years and my husband was there from the beginning, later bringing me into the fold when we married. Until then, I was always a Republican, although not necessarily a conservative. Both Rush and my husband helped me see the “conservative” light. I’m forever indebted to Rush’s life-long devotion to the conservative cause, especially during the difficult times he lived thru this past year. It was inspiring to watch Rush continue to do what he truly loved until the end. I’m very sad Rush is gone but thankful he was here as long as he was. RIP, my conservative friend - I look forward to meeting you in heaven! God bless Rush’s wife Kathryn, brother David and all of his extended family

Thank you Rush for being a major part of my life for the past 27+ years. You were a staple and a rock when the world was in chaos. Every song you played in the "bumper rotation" I loved! It was uncanny. I'd think to myself...I love every song played. Right up my alley!! And so many thought provoking comments you made hit home. I laughed a lot! You tweaked the Left countless times. You made my day! LOL! You will always be a genuine part of the patriotic fabric that makes this country so great. Rest in Peace, El Rushbo. You will never be forgotten.

Rush was a very good man. He always informed us about anything that needed to be informed about. I love his books. He is a great Rush Revere and loved his horse LIBERTY. I loved reading these books and learning so much about the history that we didn't get at school. My Nino had home schooled me after the corona virus closing. This year I am a hybrid and get a lot more from my Nino about history and math and science then over the internet. We listened to Rush everyday at lunch and cried together with my Pop when you told us he was gone.
We still listen and are glad to hear his older bits of comments and advice and pray for him during our thanking and remembering at Grace I am sorry he is gone and I hope to meet him in heaven when I get there some day.

Maha Rushi...you were a gift from God to the patriotic conservative Americans who listened to your radio show over the decades. I loved your analysis, wit, biting satire and enlightened truth. I knew when I listened to your voice I would be both entertained but also educated as well. You were and forever will be for me and millions of listeners America’s news anchor and the true doctor of democracy!!!!!

Keep praying for the country you loved here on earth and may God’s holy angels keep you company in the angelic beauty of the Kingdom of God. RIP and Lord willing I will meet you one day in paradise.....

My wife and I have been listeners and subscribers to Rush since the early 90's. He was a faithful friend and truth-teller. I think of him as a lighthouse on a rocky shore guiding all the ships who passed by and paid attention to his wisdom. Each time we come to a dangerous area, we are reminded of what Rush has to say and we are comforted. We also appreciate the continuation of Rush's legacy and work by Kathryn and the EIB team. You are in our prayers and we share in your grief. God Bless all.

I was working with a church member in the early 90’s & who had a plastic molding business at his home & each afternoon he would turn Rush Limbaugh on. At first I was upset & wanted to hear music. As I continued to listen each day I starting looking forward to hearing Rush each day & I’m so glad I was able to listen for all these years. Words can’t express how much Rush will be missed.

I miss Rush so much. This has been a feeling of loss I never imagined I could feel for someone I’ve never met. Every week day for 3 hours since he passed I have ended up in tears. I feel genuine grief as if I lost a mentor and an Institution. I’m 37 and an ex Democrat, Rush changed my heart 7 years ago and now I’m a poster boy for conservative values. Rush changed lives. I love you Rush, I thank you and you are forever part of me.

Rush was part of our family. He was the best and most informative teacher one could have. I can tell you where and when the first time I heard him. It was a spoof on the tree huggers and the chain saws were going. He had me from that moment on. I started every day with Rush and I thanked God also for giving me another day. Family stays together and gets comfort from each other, therefore thank you for keeping the show going. Mrs. Limbaugh we love hearing you on the show. God Bless Rush, his family, friends and the United States of America.

Rush Limbaugh, a true Patriot, leaves a chasm of loss for millions of us in the US and even the world. Our family had listened to him since his days in Sacramento...my parents and all my siblings...and we will sorely miss his daily broadcast, especially in the political seasons when his unique knowledge, instincts, and talent would guide us thru those seasons. Outside of those seasons, his enthusiasm for the United States, his knowledge of history, his unique delivery, kept us all glued to the radio every weekday. He was often the subject of many family conversations...and we always enjoyed the shows with great interest and laughter. Our days were better, the sun shone brighter, after every show. Rush will be sorely missed in our family. Our hearts and love go out to Katherine and all of Rush's family as your loss must be so unbearable. We thank God today for the life of Rush Limbaugh and all he did for us.

I have never mourned for anyone as much as I have for you, Rush. Thank you, God, for your blessings in bringing Rush into so many lives in order to serve You better. Rush, thank you for your undying love of country and patriotic contributions to human kind in securing the understanding of liberty and duty. No one is as worthy as you to pick up the mantle you recently laid down, but, like so many others, I will do my very best to do my part in God’s service of continuing on the path you blazed in order to education the future generations of the meaning of the United States, divinely inspired, Constitution and the God given rights it is to safeguard.

I will never forget you, Rush!

Thank you Mr. Limbaugh for all you have done and given of yourself for America's dream of Freedom. There are just no words for how much you will always be loved and missed. To say rest in peace is so contrary since you were always to busy just to sit still, but the sentiment is there. We know you're in Heaven so here's hoping you are spending lots of time with loved ones & maybe even playing golf with the Greats & those you love and admire. You will be honored forever among Conservatives and that love and honor will drive the Left nuts! There are many tears of love, God Bless you and your Family. Mega Dittos dear Friend.

I was sitting in my semi truck while making a delivery. Barack Obama was president 2009, and I didn't like what he was doing. I turned my radio and heard this voice and wondered who was this man make complete sense to me and when I heard that it was Rush, I understood. Have listened ever since, he started my journey to conservatism. My brother in law has listened to Rush ever since he came on the radio. Personally I just want to thank you for waking up a nation. Now you are a angel warrior with our Father in heaven. 7 You have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to you on that day—and not only to you, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
