    I've been following the U.S. Navy's Twitter account since his passing. I'd never heard this beautiful line they tweeted upon his death:

    "Fair winds and following seas, sir. We have the watch."

    Same here. Actually was doing good until W lost it at the end, and also when Michael W. Smith sang. That song was written originally about someone moving away. But hearing it at funeral took it to a whole other level. Thank goodness no one came into the office the past couple hours.

    A lot of messages delivered in that entire service. The hope would be that people were truly listening.

    I just read an article that makes it sound like it could've been a cough drop that President George W. Bush gave to the former First Lady. At Senator McCain's service, President Bush was seen handing something to Michelle and she later said she noticed Bush getting a cough drop for his wife so she requested one too. Based on her laughter today when President Bush handed her whatever he handed her, I wonder if he was playing off that past experience.

    Speaking of challenge coins, I received one from the Kenton County Sheriff a few weeks ago for helping him with his car at a gas station. Extremely nice gesture by a very nice guy.
