I just returned from Augusta and a very touching, tearful tribute to the late great Georgia Congressman Charlie Norwood. Hundreds were in attendance to say goodbye to Rep. Norwood, including Gov. Sonny Perdue, U.S. Congressional Republican leadership – John Boehner, Adam Putnam and others – the entire Georgia Congressional delegation, most of the state’s elected officials and more.
It was an opportunity to remember the life of Charlie Norwood and, a time to share a story or two about the great Congressman. WRDW News 12 Augusta has more coverage of the memorial service:
Friends, family and well-wishers said goodbye to popular congressman Charlie Norwood today.
He was many things during his lifetime: doctor, veteran, United States representative.
He was also a humble public servant who wanted us all to be on a first name basis with him.
Today Augusta honored the long-time congressman.
Goodbye Charlie. Thanks for the memories.
