News broke yesterday about how Obama sent form letters with electronic signatures to the families of fallen Navy SEALs. When 17 SEALs were killed in Afghanistan August 2011, that marked the biggest daily loss of life during the entire Afghanistan war.
Now we learn that when rapper Heavy D died at the age of 44, he sent a personal letter of condolence. Al Sharpton read the letter at his funeral:
"We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers."
