"One day in the early 80's, I was eating at Hamburger Hamlet in Bethesda, Maryland. I was a frequent guest at this restaurant!!! I was about to leave, when Sargeant Shriver, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Maria and brother, came in. I was sitting in the far south wing!! in a lovely Queen Anne Chair. They were seated and as I got up, Sargeant Shriver and I, made eye contact. Little known to them, I was thrilled! I politely said, "How are you Sargeant and Mrs. Shriver?" I spoke to the two(2) children as well!! Their response was very joyful and sincere. "Fine, How are you, this evening?" I bid them good evening, with a warm smile, respectfully exclaiming, "Enjoy your meal!! With the day's issue of the Washington Post under my arm, I exited the Restaurant. I will never forget how kind he was to me, just another patron in a restaurant. I appreciate all they did for this country. I wanted to apply for the Peace Corps. in 1974, while studying at American University, Washington, D.C, but due to Asthma, could not. What a great Team we've lost. True American Patriots in Action, they both were!! May God Bless the Families."

"I had the privedge of working for Sarge in the 1972 Presidential Campaign. First, as an advance man and then full time on the plane. We worked many campaign stops and had so much fun. He was a great guy and a real PRO in everthing he did. Condolences to the family for their loss! We will all miss him!"
