Note From Ted Olson
email

Posted on 10/22/2001 1:17:52 PM PDT by Paul Rodriguez

"I so very much appreciate all the kind thoughts and good wishes expressed by the Free Republic readers.

Barbara was a great fan of Free Republic.

The knowledge of how much Barbara was loved and admired has been my chief consolation in these difficult days.


Sincerely,
Theodore B. Olson"

I've been asked to post this heartfelt note from Ted Olson -- to all of you. Despite everything he's going through -- professionally and privately -- he hasn't forgotten the loves of his life ... and those of his beautiful wife Barbara, who obviously cared for you. Hence this email to you. God bless. God bless Ted and all those who died ... and live on. And God bless America.

I loved Barbara, and Ted is my hero. I'll never forget his Bush v. Gore Supreme Court performance and victory. May he continue to fight the good fight and keep winning for us.

Thank you Paul. I wrote a note to Ted a while back. I had hoped to convey to him how much we appreciated Barbara's abilities and outlook on life. That was important to me. It sounds like he may have a small idea of how much she was valued here. I appreciate you posting this to the forum.

I shall pass along to Ted all of your comments in the next or two when I print out this thread.

If you wish, you may just email me (editor@insightmag.com) and I promise I will forward all. It's the least I can do.

You know, I was just now thinking about our precious Barbara as I turned on the computer to check out the posts, and saw this note from her husband Ted. We surely do miss her and consider her a top-notch heroine. I am looking forward to receiving her FINAL book.

There was a picture of Barbara in the paper and it was with out a doubt the best one I have ever seen of her... she was smiling, as she always seemed to do. She was a vision and she was the only one who ever was on the point counterpoint programs that always maintained good humor even in the face of those who would attempt to insult her or her positions.I miss her a lot....and I am glad that our messages go to Ted. I cannot imagine how he manages to do his difficult tasks each day while missing the love of his life so deeply. He is a real role model for all.

Thanks, Ted for your thoughts at what must be trying times and thanks for your service to our great Free Republic- The United States of America.

As they say, "Behind every great woman,...

Can't wait to get BKO's final book, should arrive tomorrow. Hope it nails them...

Pass this back, if you please:

She was loved, Ted. In fact, I considered her a good cyber-friend. During the Chadgate, while you were arguing the case, she and I would bat emails back and forth trying to bolster one anothers spirits.

I miss her, and I know it is a billion times worse for you, Ted. There will never be another BKO. But I do wish you happiness, and I am sure she would want you to try to be happy someday with another. Be well, FRiend.

Yours, Lazamataz

What a couple! Two people of such stature and convictions, our nation suffered a huge loss on 9/11. Our prayers are for Mr. Olson and his family. Many of us will always remember how Barbara and Ted defeated the "Dark" side. May God bless.

Barbara was the Happy Warrior, tackling injustice and liberal spin with a smile and infectious joy, giving the world a shining example of what a conservative woman is all about. I hope that her last book continues to top the charts for many, many weeks to come. And may Ted take some comfort in knowing how many lives she touched in her far too short existence.
