EXPRESSING SORROW OF THE HOUSE AT THE DEATH OF THE HONORABLE CHARLIE NORWOOD, MEMBER OF CONGRESS FROM THE STATE OF GEORGIA

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. BARROW. Mr. Speaker, I thank the gentleman for yielding.

I rise this afternoon to remember one of our fellow delegation members, the Honorable Charlie Norwood. I know that many Members of this body served with Charlie much longer than I did, but unlike them, I think I may be the only Member here with the distinction of once actually having been represented by Charlie as one of his constituents.

Charlie Norwood was an accomplished and a tireless legislator who had stands on issues that ran the political spectrum. And while I may not have agreed with him on every issue, I always admired his spirit, and I say that as a former constituent and as a colleague.

As anyone who knew him will tell you, Charlie cared deeply for the State of Georgia and for the people he represented in Congress for over 12 years.

In this Chamber and among this delegation, there is no question that Charlie Norwood will be missed and his absence will be long felt here in Washington and back home in Georgia.

My prayers remain with Congressman Norwood's wife, Gloria, and with their entire family.
