Dear Commons Community,
Former Vice President Walter Mondale died yesterday at the age of 93. Two days before his death, he sent a touching message to his staff (see above).
“Well my time has come,” wrote Mondale in his Saturday message. “I am eager to rejoin Joan and Eleanor.”
His late wife, Joan, died in 2014 at the age of 83, while his late daughter, Eleanor, died of brain cancer in 2011 at the age of 51.
May he rest in peace!
