Ella and family,
We all lost a great friend and a wonderful man this weekend. I will miss his humor--we always laughed when we got together. While he will be missed by all of us, Heaven is a better place now that Bob is helping out up there.
God Bless,

It was with a great deal of sadness that I read of Mr. Boozer's passing. I first saw Mr. Boozer play basketball in 1958 when Kansas State came west and played Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, UT. Up to that time very few blacks (if any) had played against BYU in Provo. I was thirteen- years-old at the time and had read the pre-season hype on Kansas St., which was led by Mr. Boozer. At that time in my life I had never been outside of Utah, and had never been in the company of any blacks, or very few other minorities for that matter. Prior to the start of that game, and being totally intiminated, I was able to get Mr. Boozer's attention before he entered the court and ask him if I could please have his autograph. With a smile on his face, he stopped and signed my game program. I thanked him and thought I had died and gone to heaven. (I might add that Mr. Boozer had beautiful handwriting, something you seldom see now days.) That evening the BYU crowd was given the privilege of watching a true All-
American in action, both as a basketball player and also as a gentleman. I'm sure as I reflect on that evening that it must of been a difficult experience playing before a biased pro-BYU "white" crowd, but Mr. Boozer did it was class and gained at least one fan. I carefully followed Mr. Boozer throughout his career, and still have my autographed program from all those years ago. Please accept my sincere condolences at this time and may God be with you as a family.

I went to K-State in 1962. Delwin Locke was from the same school, Natoma, Kansas. Willie Murell, Sammy Robinson and Roger Sutner were on Ted Winter's team when I was there. Even though we weren't in school at the same time, Bob was a legend in our high school and at K-State. Everybody at K-State is sad to hear this news. It is also sad on another level, because we know we are next. Most of us will never accomplish as much in our whole lives as he did before he was twenty two. I am sure your family is extremely proud of him. They don't make people like him anymore.

My sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Boozer. May the hearer of prayer help you to endure this time of sadness and may he giive you peace as spoken of at Psalm 65:2.
