Start of the speech: Remembering those no longer around

OLYMPIA -- Gov. Chris Gregoire's state of the state address begins with a moment of silence for people who died over the last year:

State Sens. Bob McCaslin, Alex Deccio and Scott White.

Former Gov. Al Rosellini.

Nine members of the Armed Services from Washington state who died in Iraq or Afghanistan.

And U.S. Park Ranger Margaret Anderson, who was killed at Mount Rainier National Park last week.
