    CORNYN. Mr. President, with the passing of Nancy Lee Bass, the State of Texas has lost one of its finest citizens. I consider it a great honor to have known Nancy and her husband, Perry, and I join a grateful State in mourning her passing and celebrating the remarkable life she led.

    A native daughter of Fort Worth, Nancy dedicated her life to her city. A mother of four, she was a community leader and philanthropist of the highest order, working endlessly for the greater good of her fellow citizens. Nancy's generosity was matched by her hard work and her unyielding support of the arts, health care services, and education. Her good works have touched the lives of countless people, not just in Fort Worth and Texas, but across our country.

    Nancy Lee Bass has left a legacy of generosity that epitomizes the highest ideals of our great State. She will be missed, but we will find solace in the notion that her giving spirit will forever live on as both an inspiration and an aspiration for all Texans.
