Sadly, Lu Young died today in her home. She was 66 years old and had been married to Don Young for 46 years. Anyone who visited the Congressman knew she was usually right there with him.
There are politicians who I don’t agree with often, but still respect aspects of them. Don and Lu Young had an obvious love for each other and he referred to her often.
RIP, Lu Young. Today isn’t about politics for Don Young, it’s about losing the love of his life, and he has my deepest sympathies.
