Enjoy your new home in Dallas as you begin your private life together again. There you can go to bed early, as you are want to do, without having the very weight of the world on your shoulders, and just savor the company of the beloved mate whom God has graciously and lovingly given to you.
How blessed you are...and how blessed we have been to have you leading us and providing such a wonderful example for us all! We will miss you more than words can say.
This country will not fully realize what you have done for us until you are gone from public view, but some of us DO understand what we have had, and we will mourn what we have lost when you are gone.
We can never fully describe what you have meant to us, but know that we admire and respect you in a way that is inexpressible and rare. You have blessed and enriched our lives,and we will be forever thankful to God for loaning you to us for these past eight years.
