David and I were KA brothers at UGA in the early 1960's. What a great person. I can visualize his smile and his little laugh. David and I graduate the same day in May 1963. He was the only KA I saw that day. I remember David mentioning Camilla during our days a Georgia. - Glenn Harper, Montgomery, Alabama
