I never got to meet him, but I sure would have liked to. I always liked hearing him on WSB, and I was all set to vote for him for President, but he stopped running before the Georgia primary. RIP, sir. Heaven is richer with you, but Earth is poorer without you.

We will dearly miss Herman - a voice of reason and a man of God. In my humble opinion, he was supposed to be our president someday, but regardless of that - he still managed to bless our country. My deepest condolences to his family,

I had the privilege of meeting Herman Cain at a Fair Tax rally years ago. I was greatly impressed then and have remained a fan and supporter of his since. I loved his show on WSB radio and was disappointed when he left, but proudly supported him for President. I absolutely loved him and am heartbroken over his untimely death. I offer my prayers and deepest sympathy to his wonderful family.

I did not know Mr. Cain personally, though I feel like I did. My husband and I listened to his radio show on our trips from MS to GA and both grew to love him. He was a true American hero and we are blessed to have had him in this country. I have felt like crying since hearing of his passing. Rest Peacefully Mr. Cain, and true condolences to his family.

Herman Cain blessed my heart. My early life ,same age, dealing with hunger and poverty in Virginia made his struggles and success so precious. My working 2 jobs for 25 years to survive is possible. Mr. Cains GREAT example of Christian faith and hard work is far more VALUABLE than all the money in the world. Now he is face to face with his SAVIOR. HE IS NOW SAFELY HOME.. GOD bless his family.

My deepest condolences to your family. I could hardly believe it when I heard the news of his passing. So sad indeed. I always loved hearing him speak and addressing the news of the day. He was such a smart man. I didn't know him or have the chance to meet him personally, but always felt if I had he was a genuine soul. He will be dearly missed by many of us out here. As the Lord reaches out to hold his hand I pray that he will hold yours too. With sympathy, Karen Burk

Herman Cain was loved and respected by my mother, Inez Janess, and myself. Mom was a great advocate for Herman and his profound message! We enjoyed listening to him every opportunity that we had. May God bless Herman's family and friends, as He blessed us with Herman's presence for a short time in our lives. I will miss his infectious zeal for life, love, unity, and positive growth!

The year Mr. Cain was born saw segregated drinking fountains, bus seats and bathrooms, along with public schools and neighborhoods. Like Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver, Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson, he knew this life God gave us will usually turn out the way we want it to. Oh, that so many others in the land of freedom and opportunity would sit up and pay attention to the example he has lived for us. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr., "Let freedom ring"..........................

What a great man ! I met Herman when we started the Cobb County Tea Party in 2009. He impressed me with his intelligence, gregarious personality, appreciation in what the country has afforded him but mostly his loving kindness toward everyone he met. What a HUGE loss. I cried when I heard of his untimely death. Herman Cain will be forever remembered for his patriotism and love of country. Rest in the arms of God, Herman. We will miss you terribly !!
