More than anyone else in my life, Rush helped to shape my political philosophy and taught me how to remain optimistic even in the most trying times. His wit, wisdom, sense of humor and outlook on life will forever influence millions of people throughout the world. I never met him but felt as though I knew him as my friend. He will always remain on my mind and in my heart. God Bless.

There will only be one Rush and the world will be less informed in days ahead in his absence. Our hearts hurt for Katherine and the rest of his family. We hurt for the nation’s loss of a rare man. Thanks for what you did to keep us together and make us feel like one of a huge family. We love you and will see you again someday.

I miss you Rush. My dad got me to listen to your show about 15 years ago, and I felt incomplete if I missed your show live.
I’m hoping that since my dad was a big fan, that maybe he’ll get a chance to meet you in heaven. My dad arrived in heaven about 6 years ago. Take care Rush.

I enjoyed listening to Rush as he helped me clearly understand confusing political issues. He knew the play books of all the usual characters.

If a US or world issue developed, I would wait till the next day to hear what Rush has to say.

He really understood the relationship of a talk show host and his listeners. I felt like I knew him after listening for 20+ years.

We miss you Rush

I am so sorry for your loss. My parents listened to talk radio my whole life. I don’t remember the first time I heard Rush but I listened. I also listened on December 23, 2020. As I listened I wondered if this would be his last show. For one tim I really hated for my intuition to be right. I am so proud that they picked a historical cemetery in St. Louis for his final resting place. I grew up in Bellefontaine Cemetery. My dad, Donald Meyer spent his life as one person put it making an a most tolerable day out of a most intolerable situation.. I lived my childhood among the history that is here. I have laid to rest my Dad, Donald Met, My sister Julie Russian and my son Joseph William Beeman. I am proud that the lay at rest with one of the Greatest of all times.

Rush will be greatly missed but we know he is resting under God’s care free of pain. Free at last.
He was such a patriot and loved the USA. He stood for freedom and values. He kept us up to date in very important issues that mattered to true Americans.
May the Lord comfort his family .

I listened to Rush nearly 30 years, recording the show during school hours to listen to later at home. He was a true companion to me, being there every day, and teaching me so much! I had a deep respect & affection for Rush. He walked with me through all the political ups & downs, helping give me a perspective on what was really happening. It was all so clear to him & I trusted him to expose the Truth & give hope for the future. I loved Rush like a beloved big brother, a family member, with whom I could see eye to eye! He filled an important spot in my heart & I will desperately miss him. I am so gratified that Kathryn & his staff & wonderful stand-ins have worked very hard to give us some continuity in preserving & presenting Rush's Legacy from the Archives of the E.I.B. ! It is so uplifting to listen to Rush's familiar voice, expounding on so many subjects during the current continuation of the show. Viva El Rushbo! LONG LIVE OUR BROTHER RUSH LIMBAUGH IN OUR HEARTS! WE LOVE YOU!

You know the heart of this man who so many turned to for insights, hope, laughter, and wisdom. Please grant him mercy and kind admittance to your kingdom, and console those who mourn his loss. Amen.

As a young man in the 70s preparing for my academic career as a professor, I enjoyed my hobby as a DJ. I was never a radio-type DJ. I enjoyed playing music that people would love to dance to and have fun. During a 50-year anniversary event, I shared my DJ equipment with a popular Pittsburgh KQV radio personality named "Jeff Christy". Jeff made this event a tremendous success and I enjoyed the teamwork. Jeff's last comments to me were "You need a better microphone!"
Several years later as an avid listener of Rush Limbaugh, I was slightly amazed when Rush shared his memories as Jeff Christy - a radio disk jockey. Perhaps, this is what I loved most about Rush. On those days when ever I was stressed, sad or uncertain, I was glad to listen to Rush/Jeff's voice, humor and wisdom, that made me laugh. Rush never ceased being a entertainer, even as I counted and enjoyed each and every one of his last days.
I have also been grateful for my personal God's loaned talents. As an educator and researcher my goal has always been to Change Students Lives. Thank you God for your gift "Rush Limbaugh", who has Changed Listener Lives. My condolences to the Limbaugh family and colleagues.

I'll never forget the day when my husband called me at work and told me to turn on the radio and "listen to this Rush guy". He was so excited. After 30+ years of listening to Rush every day on my lunch break...it's going to be extremely hard to turn on the radio and not hear his voice anymore. I feel like I've lost a dear friend.

We will miss you oh so much it hurts and I'm crying as I write this. You are in a better place now in the embrace of our Lord, your unparalleled work here is done.

I am saddened I will not hear that familiar, strong voice, spinning his delightful in jokes and catchphrases, again in this life. I felt he was my friend and companion in a very real tangible way. I am grateful and filled with respect that when he could have retired and savored his last days in luxury, he stayed on the job and we got the best of him till the last. I hope he found joy and peace. Truly, his was talent on loan from God.
