I was very sadden to see that President Friday had passed away. He lived a great productive wonderful life serving North Carolinian's and the students he loved. He was a man of great faith and I know he is at peace with our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. I thank God for his dedication throughout his life to others. God bless.

I was a Lucy Morgan fellow in 1999 and had the pleasure of being invited into the Friday home for lunch to celebrate the award they were sponsoring. What lovely, warm people who care about students at a very personal level. Thank you for the very lovely memory and your belief in me as a student.
Mr. Friday, you will always be remembered.

The death of President Friday is truly a sad day for all UNC alumni. He was a friend of my parents Bill and Charlotte Smith. I was always told that Bill was one of the first visitors to come see me as a newborn in their apartment on McCauley St bearing a UNC Tarheels tee shirt to make sure I know where I would proceed to college in the future since I was actually born at Duke University Hospital in the midst of a snowstorm in February of 1948. I heeded President Friday's instructions and entered UNC-CH as a freshman in September of 1966. Like him, my Dad, Bill, who passed away several years ago, my blood will also always run Tar Heel blue. He was truly an inspiration for all those of us who had the pleasure to know him. Our prayers are with the family and I know there is a joyous reunion in heaven of those Carolina boys.

I never met him but did watch many of his shows. A fellow Tar Heel....I found myself crying when I heard of his passing. God bless his family and know he is in good hands at the side of the Lord.

I was blessed to have met Bill Friday in person during 2007 and 2008, when he presented his thoughts on leadership development for our Agency. (Prior to these meetings, I had always watched his show in complete awe of how he made people feel secure and at ease --even those he disagreed with!) For a small framed man walking with a cane, he had such a BIG smile and presence about himself. As he spoke, his disposition made it to where by the end of the presentation, you would think he was well over six feet tall…. His words not only lifted your spirit, it made your eyes dance in wonderment. My heart cries in sorrow for the lost of this great NC gem!!

May God Bless his family and provide them with comfort as they heal.
