So many memories of Gammy - she had such a wonderful life and shared so much happiness with others. I first met her in 1978 while working on a political campaign with Carolynn and Tom. I recall how she welcomed all of us in the campaign, becoming a "mom" to all of us. I recall staying in her home when I attended a formal event in San Antonio, and how she waited up for me to let me share the highlights of the evening with her.
