Farewell To Julia Carson

Rep. Julia Carson passed away this morning after succumbing to her long battle with lung cancer. I want to send my sincere condolences to her family. Carson was 69.
UPDATE: Mayor-elect Greg Ballard just released the following statment on Carson's passing:
  • "The citizens of Indianapolis have lost a true friend with the passing of Congresswoman Julia Carson, and I extend my deepest and most heartfelt sympathies to her family, friends and supporters. Congresswoman Carson made sure her voice was heard even when others' were silenced. May God grant her everlasting peace."
  • Governor Mitch Daniels' office is making arrangements for Carson to lie in state at the Indiana State House rotunda.

The Carson Family has my heartfelt sympathy! Julia will be missed by all. Losing a loved one this close to the holidays can make the season feel empty.
I'm sure the Carson family will celebrate the life of Julia Carson just as they will mourn the death.

Knowing that she is no longer suffering should bring a comfort to all who knew her.
