GUEST,Bob Obit: Lady Bird Johnson (11 July 2007) (30) RE: Obit: Lady Bird Johnson (11 July 2007) 11 Jul 07


When someone of your generation passes on Ron you can't help but reflect on those years when they were an important figure in society.

As we all get older I think we go into recall a lot more. It's wonderful how the mind recalls the happy times and erases the bad.

Sadly the death of this fine lady will mean nothing to the younger generation. To me she set the trend as the first "first lady" to create a role for herself which was more than just a smile and a wave on the arm of a president.

I only saw LBJ and his wife from a distance, it was the taxi driver that informed me who they were. LBJ was a very imposing figure of a man. It was hard for him to fill the shoes of JFK, I think he did a fine job.
She reached a great age and lived a full life.
