I last saw Al Grimes at a campaign event in Sedalia at the end of January. As with every time our paths crossed, we had a lengthy and interesting conversation.

Al Grimes was one of the nicest people you’d ever meet. He’d go out of his way to engage someone he didn’t know at a meeting or an event. Invariably the conversation would be jovial, very interesting, and positive.

He was one of those memorable happy warriors in Missouri politics.
