All the guestbook entries confirm what I thought about Bob Whitman who was my position coach at Tulane many football seasons ago. I was saddened to hear of his death but uplifted to read about his personal Faith and his true commitment to it.

Dear Ms. Miriam, Bobby, Judy, Mickey, Gerry, Wayne, Murphy, Joanie, and Laura,

I learned today of Mr. Bob's passing. He was one of the first Great Men that I observed in my journey-- an amazing family man and career man.

I must tell you that the Whitmans, not one of the Whitmans, but all of you, were probably my greatest influence in my early life outside of my mom, dad and brothers. Your faith was solid, your togetherness was solid, your habits and morals were solid, and your pursuit of excellence was exemplary. And Ms. Miriam was a magician, because she played music.
