Ladies and gentlemen, catherine limbaugh, hello, everyone. I know that i am most certainly not the limbaugh that you tuned in to listen to today. I, like you very much wish rush, was behind this golden microphone right now, welcoming you to another exceptional three hours of broadcasting for over 32 years rush has cherished you his loyal audience and always look forward to every single show. It is with profound sadness. I must share with you directly that our beloved rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer, as so many of you know, losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life rush will Forever be the greatest of all time. Rush was an extraordinary man, a gentle giant, brilliant, quick, witted, genuinely kind, extremely generous, passionate, courageous and the hardest working person. I know, despite being one of the most recognized powerful people in the world, rush, never let the success change. His core or beliefs was polite and respectful to everyone. He met even most recently when he was not feeling well in the hospital. He was so appreciative to every single doctor and nurse and custodian and first responder. He never wanted to put anyone out and always thank them profusely for their help. From today on, there will be a tremendous void in our lives and, of course, on the radio rush loved our miraculous country beyond measure, an unwavering patriot, he loved our united states military.
Our flag, our constitution, our founding fathers, he proudly fought and defended conservative values in a way that no one else can rush, often stood up and took arrows on his own because he knew it was the right thing to do. Rush encouraged. So many of us to think for ourselves to learn and to lead often said it did not matter where you started or what you look like as americans, we all have endless opportunities like nowhere else in the world. Rush gave us hope that, through hard work and determination, we can overcome the obstacles in our lives and be our best. Many of you started small businesses or pursued personal dreams because rush gave you the faith that you could. He made the most complex issues simple to understand, while making that level of genius look easy. It most certainly was anything but easy, irreplaceable, remarkable talent on behalf of the limbaugh family. I would personally like to thank each and every one of you who prayed for rush and inspired him to keep going. You rallied around rash and lifted him up when he needed you the most. I am certain without a shadow of a doubt if he could be here today, he would be he loved you and he loved this radio program with every part of his being. Instead, we know our rush is in heaven encouraging us in the same way, he always did on earth. Russia’S love for our country and belief that our best days are ahead, live on eternally in russia’s honor may we all continue russia’s mission in our individual lives and communities.
I know all of you. Listening are terribly sad. We all are i’m terribly sorry to have to deliver this news to you. God bless you rush, and god bless our country, oh in liberating strife who, more than self their country loved and mercy more than life. America make god that gold, refined tear all success be, and you know when i was in school. We are singing something like this. Listen here: spacious skies, foreign majesties, but now wait a minute. I’M talking about america, sweet america. You know god don’t shed his grace. You know i wish i had somebody to come and say this foreign. He told me.
