A fine man

The death of James S. Brady earlier this week marked the end of a decades-long saga of courage and dedication; the former presidential press secretary for Ronald Reagan lived more than 33 years after taking a bullet that was intended for the president. Brady was brutally wounded in Washington when a deranged John W. Hinckley Jr. fired a pistol, hoping his false bravado would impress the movie actress Jodie Foster. Reagan came perilously close to dying, but fully recovered; unfortunately, Brady was dogged by pain and disability for the rest of his life.

This decision to relocate did not come easy, as their roots are deeply established in Ohio, where both have been vital residents in their community, making significant contributions in their professions and with their service and philanthropic work. Children and grandchildren are also there. But Camden was calling.
