let perpetual light shine upon them

Tim Russert always reminded me of my father a little bit. There was a slight resemblance in the shape of their faces. Of course there are more differences than similarities but as I watched the sad news about Russert's untimely death today, I could only think of what they had in common. They were both journalists. They both worked for a governor of New York State. They were both proud of their Irish heritage. They both were loyal fans of their favorite NFL teams. They both loved politics. They were both Catholic and both Jesuit-educated. They both collapsed on the job and they both died in Washington, DC at too young an age. My deep sympathy and condolences go to Tim's family and friends.
