RIP Ambassador Richard Holbrooke

14 12 2010

No, I didn’t know him or never met him. But I worked for quite a few people who knew him and his wife, Kati Marton, personally and professionally. On occasion, I did speak with those who worked in his office.

This was a guy who commanded respect of everyone who knew him. He was on the standing list of folks to interrupt my boss’ meetings in case he called.

in some way, I feel as if I did get to know him a little bit, even vicariously through my contacts in his office and my bosses contacts with him and Kati, so the news of his passing touched me somewhat.

Ambassador, may you rest in peace and rise in glory. I look forward to finally meeting you in person in the Resurrection.
