My fondest memories of Gatewood will always be the last semester I taught before I retired. That semester Gatewood helped me teach a Political Behavior class and I used his autobiography as a text. The students and I will never forget the three full 75 minute periods he came to the class. He was not only a good lawyer, he was a great teacher.

Love and miss you Gatewood! Prayer to the family. Only time will make it easier. You never forget, you just learn how to live with it.

Condolences are offered to the family of Mr. Galbrath during this difficult time. May your memories sustain you. May you find strength in the kind words offered by others. "As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it." Proverbs 25:11

Gatewood, we'll miss you.
You were a good man, and I'm sure that your family will miss you more than those of us who were merely fellow workers for justice. My sympathy to them.

Kentucky citizens will certainly miss Gatewood. He honestly and truthfully spoke his beliefs and convictions. Prayers and love to his family.

A truly good man who cared for the opressed and downtrodden. You spoke out for what you believed to be right, even when it was unpopular.

Your broad smile and hearty handshake made me feel that I had a life-long friend in you.

There will be a void in my little part of the universe - just knowing that you will no longer be here to crusade for the common person.

May your beautiful spirt, kind heart and larger than life smile live on forever.

Dearest Family & Friends of Gatewood Galbraith,

The great poet laureate Robert Frost pined a poem titled, "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" and the opening goes like this, "Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow." Gatewood always pressed on, and marched on he never stopped to watch the woods of progress fill up with snow because the proof was in his labor on behalf of God and his fellow man. He pressed on and pressed forward for his family, his friends and the voiceless. Regretting only, I am sure, to not stop and catch his breath. But clearly the God of all Heaven and Earth called to Gatewood at a time in his life and said, "Gate its time to take a breath...time to stop for a bit and take a well earned rest my good and faithful servant, come lets rest and watch the snow, the fruits of your labor, in the woods of progress in My Name and in the name of my people--your family, your friends, and the voiceless fill to over flowing..." Frost concludes his epic poem with this line, and for me it sums Gatewood up to a tee, "The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep." Sleep dear friend and brother of man, sleep and watch the woods of progress, your wooods of progress in God's Name, fill up with snow, Amen and Amen!
