Yes, indeed.....he held a special place in my heart. And he was a very good man who was a leader in maintaining the sanctity of life.

We were young politicians together in Du Page county, Illinois, the site of his congressional district, He was a state rep at the time.

Periodically, local pols would gather at a local Irish watering-hole for lunch. Politics was discussed no end. Many times, Henry, Judge Morgan, myself and a few others ended up singing Irish ditties much to the amusement of other dinners.

Henry was a regular guy, a lot of fun, a great conservative, the perfect Irish raconteur, a middle-west traditionalist and a fighter for American values.

Our country has lost a real man and genuine patriot.Those of us who knew him KNOW he's resting in peace.
