Dearest Sharon, I am so sad to hear about L. G's demise. He was a mentor and advocate to our family and did everything he could to help my family including my son, Clay who passed away in 2009 and of course my husband Jimmy Gillen who passed away in 2002. I want you to know you and L. G. were a huge inspiration in our lives and also that although I have lost the 2 loves of my life that I am happy and thriving in a new life with a wonderful man who loves and takes care of me. I will always remember the special moments we shared and hope that you are in a good place yourself after a great loss....... Love Candy Gillen

Sharon - L.G. was a good man - a big man - a great man who took it on himself to take care of people who couldn't help themselves. Always generous, always helpful, but never intrusive, he'd do his best to make you feel better, while doing the unsavoury, down-to-earth necessities with steadfast integrity. As someone else on here said, he told it like it was and had a heart of gold. Both proud and humble at the same time, a man who faced and dealt with the reality of things - when you met him, you knew you were in Texas. One of the stalwart bulwarks who I took for granted in my life - he will definitely be in heaven now. I hope he's having a great time up there and Heaven is prepared for his big voice and big hat. Dad and Mother will be giving him a big welcome. I can hear him laughing now. But I'll still shed a tear that he's gone.

Honesty, integrity, gentleman. I have only known L.G. for five years, but he exemplified what a Bail Bondsman should be. My utmost repect for this "Southern Gentleman" what he has taught me in this business, I will treasure always. Condolences to his family. We were all blessed to have known him.

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel about the loss of L.G. As a friend for many years, I had the pleasure of enjoying his back yard BBQ's, his wisdom in the PBUS board meetings, his wit, and the love he had for Sharon.

He brought so many gifts to so many lives. I will never forget him and will hold tight to memories and always remember how much he cared about people and especially his friends.

Many years ago L.G. was one of the first people I met when I became a member of PBUS. From his cowboy hat to his monogramed shirt cuffs to his polished boots, he was the epitome of a true southern gentleman. He will be greatly missed. My heart and prayers go out to you during this difficult time.

I want to remember LG just like he was.Big and tuff with a deep gruff voice- he was not going to waste words he told it like it was.He had a heart of gold under that hat.Once you met him you would never forget him. The world lost a really good man. Rest in peace LG. My sympathy to his family. We all thought a lot of him. Leigh Gilliland/Herb Weisblatt and the staff at Sam's Furniture.
