LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – At least a dozen people had signed a condolence book set up outside Lt. Gov. Win Rockefeller's office Monday, a day after Rockefeller's death.
"Arkansas has lost a good man," Larry Schmidt of Tallahassee, Fla., wrote on the book Monday morning.
"May God bless you," Becky Keogh wrote. "In memory of a great person. He will be missed."
Flanked by two Arkansas state flags and an American flag, the registry appears in front of a picture of Rockefeller shaking hands with President Bush. Rockefeller spokesman Steve Branwer said the book was set up outside the office Sunday afternoon.
State flags were at half-staff outside the state capitol Monday morning to mark Rockefeller's death Sunday after unsuccessful treatments for a blood disorder.
Tracy Horne, communications director for Gov. Mike Huckabee, visited Rockefeller's office to offer condolences and talk with staff. Horne worked as communications director for Rockefeller's brief gubernatorial campaign last year.
"There is a different mood around here today," Horne said. "It's more quiet than it normally is. You really don't appreciate somebody like Win until he's gone."
