I have such fond memories of Mr. Usher from junior-year trig/pre-calc and senior-year calculus. I think I still have a coveted piece of "Ed-Art". Thank you for your instruction, your patience and the numerous donut and pizza parties held during class. My thoughts are with the entire Usher family.

Kathy introduced you all to me when you all visited Dallas, she and I have been friends since moving here those many years ago. Sweet Betty is such a sweetheart in my life, may you feel the love of God and stay close to his Word to help you in your daily walk.

Janet and your family and Betty and Kathy and your families. I am very saddened to hear of Eddie's passing. I met Eddie while we were both at Murray taking physics together. Actually we spent many hours together working problems, often in the family home in Mayfield (where I had the happy occasion to meet the entire Usher family). Our last year in Murray we were roommates, and he was the best -- studious, considerate, and fun too. He was an excellent person in all regards. My heart felt condolences go out to all of you.
