Senator Grams, I'm a life long Democrat but I've always thought you were a true gentleman. Honest disagreements about policy, that's for sure. That's the way it should be. But with you, Senator, it was always done with class and respect for the other side. God bless you Rod Grams and your family. Thank you for your service to the people of Minnesota.

A colonoscopy is no guarantee. Mr. Grams had one at 48 and again at 56 I heard, but he got colon cancer anyway. Sorry to hear the news about Mr. Grams, he is a good man that did not deserve this. Good luck Mr. Grams hope you beat it somehow someway by a miracle.

I am very sorry to hear this. My uncle just loved working in his office helping sending out mail flyers. It is a very hard thing to run as a conservative in Minnesota. It takes courage God bless you Ron Grams who came from humble beginnings and became a great senator.
