"The most gracious lady of Texas will now etch in history the most colorful story of her life. I teach second grade and she is by far the best icon to use in her contribution to our state and its wildflower program. She heraled like none other in her great southern charm through gestures pertinent for her postiion and through everyday talk. I grew up in the LBJ era and was fine tuned to their lives in the White House. What a wonderful life she had. This is a great time to rejoice for a life well lived by an adoring lady! Thank you Lady Bird for inspiring me throughout my life and then being able to share your biography with my classes. You have truly made Texas a more beautiful state with thousands of wildflowers to adorn our great state! Kathy Taylor Abilene, Texas"
"I was deeply touched by the death of such a great lady. I drove from Victoria, Texas with my wife to Oakhill to see the procession pass that Sunday. It was very nice to see such support from everyone that stood by the road. My brother was one of Ladybirds Secret Service agents assigned to protect her in the early 80's. He had nothing but nice things to say about her the entire time he was with her. My brother told me she always felt safe with the agents and knowing they would protect her from any harm. He again stood by her casket at the LBJ library one last time to protect her. She will be deeply missed by the entire world..."
