Sen. Baucus statement on the passing of Elouise Cobell
Posted: Monday, October 17, 2011
The following is a statement from Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana). Eloise Cobell was a warrior for justice, a voice for the voiceless, and a dear friend. Our state and our country are better for having known her. Mel's and my thoughts and prayers go out to her family, her friends and all those who are still waiting to receive the justice Eloise dedicated herself to. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of Eloise, but we know her legacy will live on in all those inspired to carry on her work.
