Tony Bennett on Mario Cuomo: “A great American, a wise philosopher and a dear friend”


Tony Bennett Tweets from Las Vegas about former New York governor Mario Cuomo, was passed away yesterday at age 82:

“Listening to Mario Cuomo speak was always an exceptional experience. He had the rare ability to communicate with any audience he was speaking to because of his enormous capacity for compassion and understanding of humanity. He was a great American, a wise philosopher and a dear friend. I send my deepest sympathies to Matilda and his family on this very sad occasion of his passing. And I will always cherish the fact that he and Matilda were our witnesses when I married my wife Susan.”
