I felt like the moon, the stars, and all the planets had fallen on me. - President Harry S. Truman, Roosevelt's successor.
I'm walking south on Michigan Boulevard and I can't stop crying. Everybody's crying. - Studs Terkel, writer.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt's death on April 12, 1945, was a personal loss for many. Statesmen and ordinary citizens alike mourned his passing. The nation buried him here, in the Springwood rose garden on April 15, 1945 (above).
