I have wanted to contact Mr. Wood ever since reading the article about him online a few months ago, (published in the Augusta Chronicle in 2010.) I found this article while conducting geanealogical research on his parents. His father was a distant cousin to me, and his mother was my very first school teacher (in 1958.)
Every day of my life I owe something to his mother, Lucile. Having her as my teacher was an absolute blessing, and she was so good to me.
I wanted to tell Truett how much Lucile meant to me, and I was thrilled to see she and Gaither had a surviving son in GA. I regret that I was not able to contact him, but I want to tell the family that I know Truett was an exceptionally special gentleman.
May God bless the family always. The Wood family was a real blessing to me.
