John had a gentle and wise way about him. On a mission to Standing Rock, North Dakota, John and Sue brought together a very eclectic team of student volunteers. We all grew on that quest, and Gollie offered patience, encouragement, and humor during 6 weeks of a most amazing journey. He'll be missed and loved for the remainder of my days.

Gollie was a good friend when we were undergraduates at Cornell. I am not surprised that he was a beloved priest and friend to so many.

To the Family of Gollie Root:
I am very sorry that I have been out of touch. Gollie and I have been exchanging Christmas cards for nearly 50 years. Each year we have said the same thing...we must get together THIS year. Well it looks like we will have to depend fully on the assurance of our mutual friend and Savior Jesus Christ for our reunion in Heaven. Since leaving Cornell, except for a "chance" meeting in Washington DC more than 25 years ago I have not seen my dear Big Brother from Alpha Sigma Phi and I will have to continue looking forward to that grand homecoming day. I'll be remembering. Belatedly,
His,
