Texas Governor Abbott Statement On Passing Of Sheldon Adelson

AustinTX (STL.News) Governor Greg Abbott today issued the following statement on the passing of Sheldon Adelson:

“Sheldon Adelson was a remarkable American whose legendary business savvy and determination helped him rise from humble beginnings to a titan of his trade.  But his life was much more than his businesses. Sheldon was a devoted supporter of Israel and a powerful voice against anti-Semitism.  He was also a generous philanthropist who used his wealth to make a difference in the world, whether it was supporting the Jewish community around the globe, funding life-saving medical research, or helping those struggling with substance abuse. His legacy will endure and continue to touch the lives of many.  Cecilia and I ask that all Texans keep his wife Miriam and the Adelson family in their prayers.”
