Oh no. Genuinely upset about this. My love to @RepDebDingell and family.

.@JohnDingell, we're going to miss you so, so much.

Just look at this today. John Dingell's advice to young people:

He wasn't just funny on Twitter, though he was very much that. I mean, look at this tweet.

He also fought hard during his time in Congress. Read this thread.

And one of my favorite moments. Seriously. Just 😭.

"I think I am most proud of all of having married the lovely Deborah, my wife." 😭

I can point to examples of Dingell's importance and legacy all evening, but I'll just leave it at this.

As I said yesterday, please read his book. It's sharp. It's funny. He had so much to say on his history, and our collective history. Let's make sure he's heard. A picture of John Dingell's book,
And one of Dingell's funniest, most-liked tweets for good measure:
Actually, one more Dingell tweet. This is how his book ends: "It's up to you, my dear friends."

Whenever you feel tired of fighting this administration, think of John Dingell. Think of this section and this final line. And then do the thing. Final section from John Dingell's book!
Adding onto this to say: seeing a handful of tweets saying Dingell should have the honor of lying in state at the US Capitol.

If his family is open to the idea, I think a lot of people would like to pay their respects.
