Did You Know

 Did you know that on July 4 ( a day so important to these two men), 1826 both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died. The people surrounding Adams' bedside said as he lay dying thunder boomed and sullen clouds hung low. The moment his spirit passed the sun came out and shone in all its glory.

I didn't know that. I can remember being very comforted by a rainbow shining on the funeral cortege of the brother of a friend. We took it as a welcome sign.

I had no idea but pretty cool. Reminds me that when my dad died, April 30th(1988), it was raining but when he died right at noon, the sun came out. I will never forget that.

I knew that Adams and Jefferson died on the same die, but did not know the rest about Adams' death.
