“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I offer my comments today on the passing of John Glenn. As many know, John Glenn has been a hero of mine, a mentor in my life and a man whom I look up to for not only his admirable career, but his steady morals, unmatchable character and his love of family.

“I’ve spent a lot of time with John and Annie, and my thoughts and my sincere prayers are with her and the rest of their wonderful family during this very difficult time. Today, we have lost a great man who has left a truly lasting, impactful legacy on this state, the nation and the entire world. Godspeed, John Glenn.”
