Re: Tommy Raskin

*A private funeral is planned for Tuesday, and the Raskin family announced last week that they had created the Tommy Raskin Memorial Fund for People and Animals, which was being set up through the Greater Washington Community Foundation.

On Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told Democratic lawmakers that President-elect Joe Biden — who lost his wife and young daughter in a car crash decades ago and his son Beau to cancer in 2015 — had spoken with Raskin to offer condolences

The two-term congressman and his wife, a former top Treasury Department official, described their son’s life in glowing and vivid terms, from his youth in Takoma Park, Md. — “making mischief, kicking the soccer ball in the goal, acting out scenes from To Kill A Mockingbird with his little sister in his father’s constitutional law class” — to his final years in the classroom.'>>>

1. I read the obituary

At another site. We lost a remarkable person, the kind who is sorely needed at this time.

Recently both Jamie and his wife were interviewed on television. She seemed to be such a happy person.

2. Yes, I saw that interview too.

Thinking of them continually, partly because he's my congressman, and one of the cousins attended school with my daughter, so my daughter became acquainted with the family.

The funeral was (to be) this morning.
