Last night, Herb Meadows' life was abruptly taken by an unexpected fire in his home.
We are blessed with our association with Herb Meadows as our Internet Campaign Manager and friend. Herb blessed the lives of everyone he touched as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, political activist, and United States Marine.
Herb was part of something much bigger than most of us ever get an opportunity to experience.
Herb Meadows embodied the passion and the commitment that has made America great. We have all suffered a loss by his passing, and yet we were fortunate to be blessed by his passion and commitment. In his work, he brought hope for change and inspired us to make a difference for our country.
At Americans for Fair Taxation, it was our privilege briefly to glimpse the love for our country and the commitment to excellence thatcharacterize Herb. Our gratitude for that experience cannot be expressed in words.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you, Herb, for the passion, the courage, and the principle, that you exhibited, not just on a daily basis, but on a continuing, moment-to-moment basis.
It is this passion and dedication that will inspire us in the future.
It is the model of your tenacity that will help us in moments when self-doubt threatens to overcome our commitment.
Thank you, Herb, and may we honor you by continuing your work in making the river of myriad voices seeking fundamental improvement in our country flow swifter and faster than even you dreamed possible.
Thank you for touching our lives in a most extraordinary way.

FR is probably the only bucket of water on the planet where tears for a fellow fail to fill the hole they leave.
I am crying.....and boy, that is rare. God is so amazing....it is a great loss for us, but a great gain for heaven!
Thank you Freepers.
