Letters for June 5: Sen. John Warner ‘will always be affectionately remembered’

Re “Warner ‘had the touch’” (Our Views, May 27): I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with the late U.S. Sen. John W. Warner while he was in Virginia Beach at an event endorsing my cousin, Will Sessoms, for reelection. Knowing my Navy background, my cousin called me over to meet him. Surrounded by admirers and supporters, the senator made me feel like I was the only person in the room. We had a strong common bond in that we both had been enlisted and commissioned officers.

John Warner was a true statesman

The May 27 front-page obituary for former senator and former Navy secretary John W. Warner (R-Va.), “5-term senator from Va. often went his own way,” was worthy of his value to his state and his country. I have wonderful memories of his seriousness and humor, beginning with Hogan and Hartson, where I was, for a time, its sole receptionist, and continuing through his Senate service.

U.S. Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) issued the following statement earlier this week on the passing of former U.S. Senator John Warner:. “John Warner was a great American who served his country in World War II, the Korean War, and as Navy Secretary, and served Virginia in the Senate for thirty years. I am proud to have been his friend, and he was instrumental in my career and in those of so many others.
