Sad News

Like I said before, it's David C. Ford week here at the Mindsilt Blog. Unfortunately, I have some very sad news to report. It's sad news for me, for my family, for the people of Indiana and for all of humanity (as John Donne writes, "Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee..."). My father passed away yesterday morning after battling pancreatic cancer.

I will miss him dearly. It was an honor to have him as my father and role model. I owe more to him than I can even imagine. But don't just take it from me, check out what other Indiana legislators have to say about my dad.


  1. Jeff, I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing.

  2. That was a great write up about your dad. From that picture, I can see why everyone says you look alike. He will be missed.
