Fox News

harles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News contributor, Pulitzer Prize winner, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author who came to be known as the dean of conservative commentators, has died. He was 68.

His death had been expected after he wrote a heartbreaking letter to colleagues, friends and viewers on June 8 that said in part “I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me…

““Recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.”

    Ah, how sad..he lived his life fully, however…used his mind and wit and abilities to the max. It’s always inspiring to see a person “overcome” and live without self-pity. I think he viewed it all as “What’s done is done” and followed it up with “now let’s see what can be accomplished with what we still have.” R. I. P.

    Psalm 103:13-17…
    As a father has compassion for his children Adonai has compassion for those who show reverence.
    God knows how we are fashioned, God remembers that we are dust.
    The days of mortals are like grass; We flourish as the flowers of the field.
    A wind passes over them and they are not more; And no one can recognize where they grew.
    But adonai’s compassion is everlasting.
    God’s kindness to children’s children, To all the reverent ones, Endures, age after age, unchanging.
