The great patriot Ross Perot passed away today. My husband worked for Ross's company EDS for over 30 years. Mr. Perot was a good and decent man. When two EDS employees were thrown into prison in Iran, Ross mounted a successful rescue mission. When a former employee called him out of the blue because she was stranded in South America, he took steps to help her. In later life, he has been giving financial aid to the children of fallen soldiers so that they will be able to attend college.

Rest in peace, Mr. Perot. You improved a lot of people's lives including my own.
