PolitickerNJ extends condolences to Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-7) and his family.
The assemblyman lost his father last night.
Elijah Singleton, Jr. died after a short battle with colon cancer. The Assemblyman’s mother, Delores Singleton, died in 2012.
On his Facebook page today, Assemblyman Singleton posted a quote of his father’s: “You don’t always get the opportunity to live your dreams, but you must live your responsibilities.”
In honor of Elijah Singleton, from the poet Delmore Schwartz:
“Love is the most difficult and dangerous form of courage. Courage is the most desperate, admirable and noble kind of love.”
