From our days a half century ago at City College, through our formative years in public service, working our way through the political process and culminating in our work together in the Maryland General Assembly, I valued his friendship and advice. Even though he sat high in Washington D.C. as a national leader, Elijah would reach down to the least of thee to offer help and assistance.
We were blessed to have him with us. His legacy will live forever!
