MARK SMITH
Senate Staffer
Friend of Herman Cain
From Mark: I’ve known Herman for 8 years, this news of his passing is incredibly sad. This photo is from a College Republican event at Morehouse College, I delivered a speech and introduced him as our speaker. Herman was so thrilled about my speech that he read it on his radio show, posted it on his website, and quoted it at numerous speaking engagements across the country. He literally lifted me up, the way Morehouse Brothers do. He would take me to lunch at Eagles Landing Country Club once a year just to offer me career and life advice, always joking that he would let me take over his show. Many of you knew a personality, I knew the person, he was a damn good person and so thankful for him being in my life. Rest well to my friend and Morehouse Brother, Herman Cain.
