Tim Russert – Blessings of Life, Blessings of Death

Posted by Warren Peterson on June 16, 2008

Blessings of Life

· Over the years, Tim Russert gained the respect of his friends, colleagues and the listening
public, something vastly more important to him than the fame and wealth he also enjoyed.
· He wrote the inspiring story of his father, Big Russ.
· He saw his beloved son graduate from Boston College.
· The last days of his life were spent with his wife and son in Italy on vacation.

Blessings of Death

· He died at his desk doing the job he loved.
· His death was quick. He did not linger in pain or suffer the indignity and frustration of lost
abilities.
· He went out on top, at the pinnacle of a remarkable career.
· A devout Roman Catholic Christian, he knew his Savior. Surely, Jesus prepared a place for
Tim Russert.
