President Biden honored the life and legacy of former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kansas) on Sunday, calling him “the greatest of the Greatest Generation.”
Dole died in his sleep early Sunday morning at the age of 98, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation announced in a statement on Twitter. The former senator disclosed in February that he had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and would be undergoing treatment.
The article goes on to state the following:
Biden on Sunday said Dole, whom he served alongside in the Senate for more than 20 years, was a “friend” and “an American statesman like few in our history.”
“A war hero and among the greatest of the Greatest Generation. And to me, he was also a friend whom I could look to for trusted guidance, or a humorous line at just the right moment to settle frayed nerves,” Biden said.
“I will miss my friend. But I am grateful for the times we shared, and for the friendship Jill and I and our family have built with Liddy and the entire Dole family,” he added.
“Like all true friendships, regardless of how much time has passed, we picked up right where we left off, as though it were only yesterday that we were sharing a laugh in the Senate dining room or debating the great issues of the day, often against each other, on the Senate floor. I saw in his eyes the same light, bravery, and determination I’ve seen so many times before,” he continued.”“This work, for Bob, was about more than passing laws. It was written on his heart.”
“Bob was a man to be admired by Americans. He had an unerring sense of integrity and honor. May God bless him, and may our nation draw upon his legacy of decency, dignity, good humor, and patriotism for all time,” he concluded.
