I met Herman many years ago at a restaurant association function and his demeanor immediately commanded respect. He was a tremendous individual and a man of his word. This nation, this world will miss Herman Cain.

He was very inspirational and an awesome individual. I met Herman in Cobb County with my son. It was an honor and a pleasure to meet him in person. My son and I will never forget him! He was a person all of us can look up to as a role model.

So very saddened to learn of Herman's passing. I have always enjoyed his commentaries on FB and his radio program. He proposed to number of ideas as a presidential candidate and I am happy to say I voted for him in the 2012 primary election. He wise advice will be missed Rest in peace, my friend.

My heart is heavy and I am deeply saddened by the passing of Herman Cain. For years I listened to him faithfully on the radio so I felt as if I have lost a close friend. I had the honor of meeting him once. I was waiting in line at a bookstore for a Sean Hannity book signing. A dark car drove up and out stepped Herman Cain. His presence was commanding and his smile, was amazing. I rushed over to shake his hand and the crowd began chanting ,”Run Herman Run!” He would have been an wonderful president because he was such a wonderful man. I will miss him. Love and prayers to the family.

A true American who proved the value of hard work over entitlement , and focused dedication over a handout. A model and example for many ; one who was an asset , and not a draining liability. Well done, good & faithful servant !

Herman Cain was a class act, always gracious, full of humor, and self-deprecating. It was an honor to have worked on his 2012 campaign. His death is America's loss.

I respected Herman Cain so much. Granted, he espoused the conservative view, which I appreciated, but he always seemed so broadminded in his acceptance of people, white and black. He had a sense of humor and a sensible outlook and a spirit which simply endeared him to people. I shall miss him very much and send prayers for eventual consolation to his family.

Absolutely, one of the best people that I have ever known. One of the most successful and one of the most courteous. One of the most faithful and one of the most energetic. One of the most kind and one of the most valiant, like a Knight in shining armor. This is what Herman Cain has meant to me and my family. God has you now. May God bless you, keep you and bless your family in this time of sorrow.

Herman Cain’s passing is earth’s loss and Heaven’s gain. He surely received a “Well done, thy faithful servant” welcome, and his rewards will be great. He will be so greatly missed here, not only by those who knew him best, but by those of us who knew him only by what we saw and heard on his radio and TV appearances. May God use his passing in all of our lives to draw us closer to Him.

I never got to meet Herman Cain; however, I admired this great man. And, he had such an infectious smile. I voted for him for President. He sure would've made a great one. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Herman Cain is one of the men I truly admired although I did not know him personally I have been a fan and a faithful listener and I had hoped he would be president. He was very smart yet very humble and caring of all people. I am so sad to hear he has passed I am in such shock and can’t stop thinking about him and his family and what they must be going through I have cried often and I wish he hadn’t left us so soon. I hope his family knows just how he has touched so many people and how much they loved him and will miss him. Thanks for allowing me the privilege to express my feelings.

Herman Cain was a powerful voice for Conservatism & the Constitution. He was a tremendous Patriot. I cannot wait to see the movie about him that's now out on DVD. He always had such a positive attitude about everything & was a realist. He will be sorely missed by anyone & everyone that loved this country as founded. His family was so blessed to have him in their lives. I am truly sorry for their tremendous loss.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Amen.

Will miss his infectious smile and loyalty to his faith. A true role model to follow. He was a moral compass in a storm and darkness of the current climate. Prayers and support to his family in their hour of need.
