It is hard to put into words the profound sense of loss I feel at the death of my friend Clementa Pinckney. I spoke with him earlier in the day that he was killed, and I was met with his usual smile and warmth. He was a force for good in the Senate that will be greatly missed. In looking back at his life, I am reminded of a saying written in a Churchyard in Charleston: "We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings not figures on a dial. He lives most who thinks the most, feels the noblest, does the best." If we measures Clementa's forty one years in terms of his deeds, he lived a full life indeed. I am confident that he can now join Paul in saying, "I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7) It was truly an honor and blessing to serve with him in the Senate.
