R.I.P. Governor King

Today New Mexico is saying goodbye to 3 term governor Bruce King.   He was one of my personal heroes.
My dad was in the NM Mounted Patrol which meant he worked alot of public events.  Whenever Bruce King was around, my dad would take me up to say hello and shake his hand. 
Governor King always said the same thing "and who's this pretty little girl?"...every time!
He had a way of making every person that he met feel special and welcomed.
Former president Clinton spoke the eulogy today and did a good job summarizing the Governor's wit, charm and hospitality. 
New Mexico was lucky to have such a good leader for so long.

Thanks for all your years of service Governor!
