To the Family & Friends of Mayor Ed Lee:
I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Mayor Lee's passing. I regret that I was out of town and unable to pay respects in person. The Mayor was an extraordinary human being kind, humble and caring. He loved and was totally devoted to his family, his friends, his city and the Bay Area. It was my extreme privilege to know him and enjoy his strong support when I worked at Caltrain. My thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and his countless friends and admirers.

I am sorry for the family's loss and the loss to the maor's office. This is especially upsetting to the local flow of politics. He will be restored to life on earth without any unknown illness lurking. He will be under the perfect authority of the Creator who is not swayed by personal beliefs or thoughts.
