    I have lived in Tom Lantos's district since he was first elected. He was such an amazing man with high ideals that he practiced on a daily basis. His concern for human rights and dignity was in the forefront of all he did.

    I was fortunate to meet Mr. Lantos in person in his office in Washington DC in September of 2006 with a delegation from the American Cancer Society. He was charming, caring and sincere....all that I would have exepcted of him!

    I believe he is watching over his wife and family and all of us from a place free from suffering. As a cancer survivor myself I am glad he did not suffer a long illness and that we have him watching over us in death as he looked out for all of us in life. A truly amazing man!

    Farewell, great man!

    I had the chance to meet personally with the great humanist and advocate of the American-Israeli alliance, Tom Lantos. As a defender of the rights of man, Mr. Lantos helped the large number of dissidents and hunted people in Eastern Europe under the communist dictatorship. Several times Congressman Lantos got up in my defense before the communist regime in Yugoslavia and the authoritarian regime in Croatia, which suppressed basic human and civil rights such as freedom of speech and political association, freedom of the press and parliamentary activity.

    I also deeply appreciate the way Congressman Lantos took under his protection my friend Ernest Brajder, a Zagreb Jew, whom the secret service arrested, together with me, and then fabricated his suicide, saying he jumped out of a fourth-floor window.

    Lantos, a Holocaust survivor, strongly supported the freedom of small nations and of individuals, a truly noble mission. Shalom and God bless you; goodbye, great man, Thomas Peter Lantos!

    I will never forget Dr. Lantos and how he made it possible for me to teach in Millbrae at a time when a person of color would never have had an opportunity to teach there. He and his family gave me so much support, always ready to help me. I am deeply saddened that we have lost a great man and I am honored to have known him.
