That's two big names that I will definitely remember their death dates! The other was Benazir Bhutto.

I discovered a note written by his father (a former State Trooper) here at home that my husband had. I tried to contact the family two years ago via his publisher to offer the note to them as a memento (gratis, of course), but never got a reply. I suppose not everyone is into historical mementos of their forefathers.

How did you happen to have at your home a note written by Schwarzkopf's father?
