Statesman, military leader, husband, father, grandfather, and dear friend of 40 years. Colin Powell was all those things. I along with many others grieve his passing. His departure is our nation’s loss. I am comforted only in the sure knowledge that Colin will now reap his just rewards. May God bless Alma, Michael, Linda, Annemarie, and his grandchildren.
