Dear Pat, Marjorie, Gloria and Roger: It was so sad to hear about the passing of Kermit. My heart goes out to you and your families. Kermit was such a sweet guy, and very unique. When I remember him from high school it brings forth a smile; he was such a mischievous and fun-loving guy! Amazing how the love of a good gal settled him down! He loved his family, and he cherished the relationships and friendships from Clear Fork. He will certainly be missed. My prayers are for you all.

Pat and family, my heart is broken. Kermit was a true friend to so many! I have so many wonderful memories of the two of you. I will always treasure the memory of your visit to our log home in WV and our home in Florida. Every time I think of Kermit I remember him calling me a double Williams because my mom was a Williams and married a Williams. Lol Kermit was one of a kind and I’m sure he would want to be remembered in that way!😊 I love you and missed you guys so much at the reunion! Just wasn’t the same!😥

Pat and family: I am so very saddened of your and our loss of Kermit. You know...Kermit was just of one caliber, there was no other...just one mold. But I loved him just as he was, and he was very readable...if looking into his heart. He had a deep caring for all his friends, classmates---and we shared that to the fullest. When I last saw him at a lunch at Lonestar, he didn't look well...I hugged him and told him I loved him and he told me he loved me too. Now that is a loving, caring man...and his apparent love for you was very forthright for everyone to see. Know that we will miss him dearly and he will surely be remembered affectionately...one more thought..he was rotten to the core...and he liked acting that way! Ha. Prayers and blessings to you and the family. Love you, Gloria Foster Estep '61
