I remember W.G. when I was a child and he would laugh and smile. Whenever I think of him and Kaki, my grandmother, I see his wide smile. My parents, Jack and Tommye, always loved him. I always thought he was just a mountain of a man and knew that he was the nicest, most generous man that God ever had roam the Earth. I remember those summers being at the house on Seashore St. in Port Aransas. God called a great man home.
