Only two weeks ago I was having a drink around a camp fire with former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens.
Today I was flying to Alaska when I heard he was killed in a plane crash.
The Senator was a WW II fighter pilot and was in a small plane crash in the 70's. He survived that crash but his wife and three others did not.
I did not agree with his politics but our camp out conversations we about other things of life. He was a gentleman. I will miss him although I only knew him personally for a matter of days.
Carpe diem. It is all too short.
As you were,
