Farris remembers encounter with the late Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Farris remembers encounter with the late Dr. Charles KrauthammerWe were privileged to have had a brief visit with the late Dr. Charles Krauthammer at a conference in Colorado Springs some time back. In introducing ourselves to him, we noted that we were from Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s District. His face lit up with an infectious smile, and he spoke of his high regard for McCarthy — and shared his hope (and ours!) of seeing him one day serve as president of our great country. The news of Krauthammer’s passing last week resounded around the world. He was truly a global icon and a giant in the field of journalism. The conference photographer offered to take a photo of all of us, which included four generations of women from one family — including Christina Scrivner (holding her newborn daughter, Jacqueline), Patti Cosner and Pat Farris. Krauthammer’s caring nature was on display as the photographer arranged the photo, when he remarked “I want to be by the baby!” — Ed
