From Armando Acuna

Very sad news indeed. He was a great colleague who shared his enthusiasm, energy and Capitol stories - boy, did he have some good ones - with his bureau-mates. I remember the pleasure I had watching him, all aglow, as he walked down the aisle of the Assembly, which honored him for his long tenure as "The Dean." I also remember those big, fat pencils he used. I remember how he loved Notre Dame football and loved to talk about it on Monday mornings. I remember the picture he showed me of when he was a high school basketball player. What I remember most of all, though, is what a great guy he was.
