Chief of staff to Sen. George Runner dies
This past week has been very difficult. My long-time Chief of Staff and good friend Will Smith passed away on Monday. He collapsed while playing a game of basketball, his favorite sport. Will had worked for both Sharon and me for almost 14 years, and became a member of our family as much as he was a colleague.
Will was someone who had his priorities straight. There are so many great things I can say about him, but perhaps one of his strongest characteristics was his incredible dedication to his family and his faith. It was my privilege to adjourn today’s Senate session in Will’s honor. He will be greatly missed, but I take comfort in the fact that he is home with his Lord.
