It's been a week and three days since Tim Russert has left us. As an avid fan of Mr. Russert and Meet the Press, I was shocked. In the days following his death, I watched the hours of NBC and MSNBC tributes--even the televised funeral coverage. Conventional wisdom would say for someone who did not know him personally, I have adequately grieved. Believe me. I know this. But it was the coverage of his life--the parade of friends, the love he had for his family, the joy of politics and his work, the honor he gave to faith, and the way he seemed to relish every minute of life that made me increasingly more sorry to see him gone so soon. Maybe through our own lives, we can honor his, which was obviously lived to the fullest. Just give me a few more days. 

Many blessings,
