'Our country just lost a great and faithful public servant. We mourn the passing of John Dingell, whose good nature, great skill, and dedication defined his long and well-lived life. He was an institution in Congress, a force to be reckoned with, the ‘Dean of the House’ — and he served Michigan and his country with pride and honor. John was a good friend to many and he will be dearly missed. Our thoughts are with Debbie and the entire Dingell family in this difficult time."
