For Lady Bird...

You brought a special measure
measure of class to the White House

This is for you...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I thought I saw a new star in the sky last night and as an acorn fell at the top of a snow covered hill a soft breeze blew and it started to move gathering the snow, leaves and twigs like memories in one's life growing in strength and stature, then, standing proud in the wake of what it had become it slowly stopped at the end of it's well travelled road.

The winter moved into spring and the warm sun opened its arms and embraced the memories of happy times, the laughter the tears and as that snow began to melt a cool breeze danced across my feet and the sun released its rich embrace to the heart of mother earth and as the days past into months and the months past into years I returned to this happy place, and where once lay an acorn now an oak tree grows.

Im 11 and im reading a Biography about Lady Bird Johnson. I Almost cryed when I found out how she got Marryied.It is soooooooooo sweet.
September 21, 2007
My deepest sympathy to all the family. My daughter (Victoria) worked for Senator Robb in D.C.
She had met Mrs Johnson and spoke highly of her.
When I travel the highways I see the beauty. Thank-you Mrs Johnson
September 15, 2007
Words can not begin to express the loss felt with the passing of our beloved Lady Bird.
Can any of us every look out onto the highways, delighting in the bluebonnets or buttercups swaying in the wind and not stop to remember our Texas rose.
My first memeories of Miss Lady Bird like many my age was on a November night in 1963. I still see in her face the strength she gave her husband and all of us.
Her beautification of America commercials touched my heart.
Because of Miss Lady Bird I bacame interested in wildflowers and took up gardening. That love of working the ground and seeing the riches of the seed to plant has been passed on to my daughter Mary. Miss Lady Bird taught us so much the beauty of the land,about our world and protecting our earth.
She has touched my life in so many ways.
My sympathys go out to the family of Miss Lady Bird. She was our national treasure. We all loved her and we share your grief in her passing.
August 04, 2007
I believe we have seen the passing of an important legacy of the state of Texas and of our wonderful country. Lady Bird gifted us with an appreciation of beauty that will impact future generations. There is not a time when I work in my garden, look at a plant catalog, or travel that her desire to make the world a prettier place doesn't cross my mind. Her beautiful rose bush is in the Jackson-Perkins catalog I just received and I know it will be a lovely addition to my garden. I hope your memories are a comfort to you and that her impact on the world will be a lasting tribute to her inner beauty.
God bless you all,
Darlene Knight

Thank you for all you have done for the people of Texas. We are forever grateful for your dedication to the preservation and conservation of the natural beauty that now surrounds us on our highways and cities. My brother had the opportunity to work for you at the Wildflower Center and meet you in earlier times. God Bless you and your family.
July 24, 2007
My sincerest condolences to the family of Lady Bird JOhnson. Truly an icon in our nation's history, her legacy will live on for years to come. I am sad that these notices were posted after her death - I hope she knew when she was alive how deeply she touched so many strangers. My prayers are with you.
July 24, 2007
I was so sorry to hear of Lady Bird's passing. She was an elegant and grand lady who represented our country with grace and style. It was a nice knowing that I was born on her birthday.
July 24, 2007
Dear Family and Friends,

Please know that countless Americans are grieving with you today over the loss of Lady Bird Johnson. She was just larger than life, and what we saw in news broadcasts and documentaries was the real Lady Bird Johnson.

I was so very impressed with all the family members who participated in the services for Mrs Johnson. Each service was so well planned and uplifting. I know that each family member will have an empty spot in their hearts for quite a long time. The main thing to remember is that no one can ever take away your precious memories of your "Nini".

Mrs Johnson was such a special person, and she touched each and everyone of our lives. Rest in peace Mrs Johnson, and may you know just how much you were loved by everyone.

Most sincerely and in Christian Symathy,

Carolyn Gunn

My husband (an ex-Department of Transporation Landscape Architect, who worked with Lady Bird in the early days of the Highway Beautification Awards) and I were introduced at a Beautification Awards ceremony at the Wildflower Center. A couple of years ago, we were having dinner at Cafe Josie (which I understand was one of her favorite restaurants in Austin) and Lady Bird was having dinner with her daughter Linda and granddaughter Cathryn (who I had met at a mutual friends wedding and was hosting a baby shower I'd be attending the next week), so we went over to say hello. When I told Lady Bird that we had met at the Wildflower Center and reminded her of who my husband was, her eyes lit up and she clapped her hands with the most genuine smile of happiness - I was so very touched at her expression. I had always wanted to meet her and was very happy to have been able to tell her in person that she was, in a way, part of the beginning of the relationship with my wonderful husband, who to this day has one of her pictures in the wildflowers in his office. Thank you Lady Bird, for all you did to make Texas the beautiful state it is! You'll be so very dearly missed by all of us.

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
July 21, 2007
About 1972, that year's Austin Junior League Provisional Class, of which Luci was a member, planted wildflowers on Town Lake,in support of Mrs. Johnson's beautification efforts. Afterward we were invited to the ranch and got to experience the hospitality of both President & Mrs. Johnson. Each time I pass through Austin I look to see how those flowers are doing, & think of her. But the thing I remember most is that Mrs. Johnson did not have "company manners". She treated everyone with the same warmth & grace.
July 20, 2007
It was a great honor having you for a first lady. We have great memories of you. May God be with and Bless your Family during this time of sorrow.
July 20, 2007
I'm sorry I never had the chance to meet you or see you in person during my 42 years on this earth. You have inspired me time and time again through your writings, and your passion for nature & the beauty of the landscape. You've touched my life and I'm so grateful I've lived during your time. Thank You, for all you've done. God Bless
July 20, 2007
It was an honor to have met you. You will be missed by many.
July 20, 2007
As secretary to Judge Barrow in Johnson City, I at age 20, was overwhelmed at the friendliness and unpretentious nature with which Lady Bird welcomed me at a brunch at the Texas White House in 1976.
July 20, 2007
Ms. Lady Bird was a true Texas lady to all - she will be miss immensely - She will keep Jesus' flowers in full bloom forever -
July 19, 2007
You are a very good lady. I will miss you. I am happy for you that you are in a better place now.
July 19, 2007
A GREAT LADY WHO WAS LOVED BY MANY, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.
July 19, 2007
God comfort the family of a great lady.Shes with our lord now and my favorite fellow, L. B. J.

Texas is more beautiful,because of you,thankyou,from myself and for my grandchildren.
July 18, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
July 18, 2007
You were a wonderful lady. You will be missed.
July 18, 2007
You will be missed very much.
July 18, 2007
Lady Bird,

You will be missed by all you knew you, as a
wonderful wife, first lady, Mother and a truly dedicated naturalist, who brought beauty to Texas and it's land and highways. We will miss your grace and poise and will never forget how compassionate and kind you were to Mrs. Kennedy during that awful crisis in 1963. The world saw what a great first lady you conveyed to all and a great partner
to President Johnson. We are proud to have known you and a pleasure to have a genuine lady represent this great state of Texas.
I met you at the Wildflower Center 20 years ago; and you were so kind to pass on your knowledge to all who would listen. The world
is a better place to have had you in our midst.
Amazing Grace is what you represent!
July 18, 2007
Dear Johnson family,
My husband's passion is music; he makes his living as a record producer and studio owner. My passion is the environment. We both enjoy each other's interests as well. Ten years ago, when I was pregnant and knowing we'd have a son, we were trying to decide on a name. It was December and I read an article in the Austin American-Statesman about Lady Bird Johnson's 85th birthday party. The article stated that Mrs. Johnson's name at birth was Claudia Alta Taylor. I said to Mark, my sweet husband, "Taylor would be a good name for a boy, and I have admired Lady Bird Johnson all my life." He replied, "What a coincidence! Taylor is the name of my long-deceased uncle who introduced me to the guitar when I was a little boy!" So, our beautiful child, Taylor, is named for both environmental and music influences. He is now 9 years old, loves the natural world, brings his mama flowers when he can, and plays piano beautifully.
Now when I tell people that Taylor was named for Lady Bird Johnson, they look at me a bit puzzled. That's when they learn of her maiden name!
One more thing: Mrs. Johnson advocated beauty all her life. Every picture I saw of her showed that she herself only grew more beautiful as she got older. It shone from within and without. She is sorely missed. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful lady with the rest of us!
July 18, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
July 18, 2007
Mrs. Johnson,

I had the privilege of working for you at the National Wildflower Research Center in the early days. Our nation is forever changed in many blessed ways by your legacy and we truly are grateful to you.
July 17, 2007
Will always be remembered in DC.
July 17, 2007
When I heard that Mrs. Johnson had passed away, I was very sad. I knew the day would come, but one never wants that to happen. I will miss her very much. When I lived in Dallas, she was spoken of with love. I remember 63, and how wonderful she was in our nations uproar. I am please to have had her for our First Lady. Thank Lady Bird.
July 17, 2007
A true patriot who helped our environment, Texas, and The United States. You followed the moral compass that God's inspiration showed you. May your legacy carry on for generations and grow into a strong movement for a better future.
July 17, 2007
peace be with you lady bird,i new you as a friend.you,will be truly missed.every time we see the bluebonnets on our highway we will think of you.
July 17, 2007
You will be missed. God will hold your family close to Him as they grieve.Your love and legacy of wildflowers will be so much more special to our family.
July 17, 2007
When I finally visited Texas and saw the beautiful fields of fantastic wild flowers, I really appreciated the meaning of "beautification" that I had heard from Lady Bird for so many years. Thank God she had the foresight and influence to make it happen!
July 17, 2007
What a gracious lady and what an inspiration and example she was to us all. May we continue her legacy by treating those around us with the love and respect she always showed to others.
July 17, 2007
Thank you for being such a friend to Texas and the nation.
July 17, 2007
You were an inspiration to us all. My life has forever been changed by the Texas Highways and Byways during my travels through Central Texas. Thank you for your vision and commitment to see the world and our communities for something bigger than ourselves. Lady Bird Johnson you are a National Treasure.
July 17, 2007
we will truly miss you lady bird..we think of all the time we see the bluebonnets..

To: Luci & Lynda Johnson:

I am a 58 year old Black American, born and raised in the Arkansas Delta. I am a better person and America is a better place because of your Mother, Lady Bird Johnson.

Mrs. Johnson's War on Poverty was real. I am a living testimonial to your parents GOOD WORKS. I was paid for working after school cleaning the high school I intergrated in 1965. I received an academic scholarship to a Big Ten University. I was drafted and served during Vietnam; became a lawyer then a Judge in a mid-western city.

I "met" your father in April 1968 at the Poor Peoples Campaign in D.C. He had just gotten out of the back seat of a 1965 green U. S. Army Ford Fairlane and walking towards the Lincoln Memorial.

He was tall, really thin, and his face was so weary looking and wrinkled, as if he had not slept for days. His black suit, white shirt and thin black tie all were wrinkled, as if he had slept in them. I had been up all night myself and was trying to get some sleep on the slope just below the memorial, where a small rally was being held. I heard a commotion. I pulled the Washington Post from face and sat up just as he walked closer. He paused for a moment, somehow his eyes seemed to speak and he walked on.

I had seen Lady Bird's Knight in shining Armor. May God Bless and Keep Them Both In His Mercy and Everlasting Love Until He Returns.
July 17, 2007
A grateful citizen thanks you for your care and concern for our nation.
July 17, 2007
Thank you for sharing your wonderful Mother with this great nation. Heaven has one more beautiful ROSE.
July 17, 2007
In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

July 17, 2007
We appreciate your love and passion for nature.
July 17, 2007
You made life a great deal prettier now brightenup heaven
July 17, 2007
You are known as the wildflower lady, but to me you are an inspiration and the epitome of grace and strength. Thanks for all you have given us. Rest in peace lady bird.
July 17, 2007
A tremendous loss for the country, as well as the Johnson family. My condolences to Lady Bird's family.
July 17, 2007
You left your finger prints every where you went.You will be missed by all.God is smiling alittle bigger because his garden has a new flower
July 17, 2007
I will always remember you whenever I see all the beautiful wildflowers.
July 17, 2007
We will always think of you every time we see all the wild flowers along the Texas roadways.
Thank you for everthing you were to so many of us....
July 17, 2007
What an inspiration you were to your husband and daughters and to all of us that loved you!
I never met you personally, however, I knew you as well in my heart.
You have already been missed.
July 17, 2007
God's blessings on Mrs. Johnson and her family. She truly was a great woman and a caring humanitarian. She will be missed.
July 17, 2007
Our condolences are sent to the family of Mrs. Johnson who graciously and lovingly lived the American dream with her ideals and Faith. Our Nation was indeed blessed with her life.
God Bless You all.
July 17, 2007
George H.W. Bush said she exemplified ''the grace and the elegance and the decency and sincerity that you would hope for in the White House.''

To me she exemplified "the grace, elegance, decency and sincerity that we all should hope for in humanity. What better way to honor her than to keep her work, hopes and dreams alive throughout eternity.

What better way to sustain her memory than to show kindness each day, decency to those you encounter, sincerity in your words and actions and grace when confronted with adversity.

I will not shed a tear for her passing. I think a smile for the memories she gave us would be better.
July 17, 2007
our deepest condolences to the family
July 17, 2007
On behalf of our entire chapter,
Nonpareil Chapter, Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc., I extend our sincerest sympathy. In 1965, "First Lady" Johnson extended an invitation to Mrs. Willie Lee Glass to attend a luncheon along with other fellow Texans and other outstanding women from all over the world. It was at that power luncheon that eight women were inspired and impressed to work cooperatively to help alleviate the myriad of problems facing youth in their respective communities. It was from that idea and nucleus that Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. has developed into an internationally known and respected public service organization. The vision and service of these eight women created the TLOD Story, yet, it was "First Lady" Johnson's invitation to the luncheon that gave birth to the organization. May God continue to bless and keep you in His care, and may you find comfort in knowing that the service that Lady Johnson rendered to mankind will live on forever.
July 17, 2007
To Lynda And Luci, I am a big admirer of your parents, I was a teenager during their era, their loss is a great loss for me as an African-American woman. I don't know if we will ever see their like again. Your family should be very proud and thankful for the legacy they left us.
July 16, 2007
Our prayers are with the Johnson family for their loss. She was a true Texan. She will be truly missed.
July 16, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
July 16, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with the Johnson family. Mrs. Johnson was an incredible woman who will be missed by a nation.
July 16, 2007
What a great lady she was! What a tremendous contribution she made to our world. My grief for her is very real. She blessed my life as she did so many. I shall always treasure the gift of her WHITE HOUSE DIARIES and her letters to us in the '70's and '80's, largely related to AL NIMR, a horse that I had the privilege of training, and for whom there is a plaque in the Rose Garden. My prayers are with Lady Bird's family and friends whom I join in mourning. What a blessing she was to us all!
July 16, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird for all you did for Texas. You will be remembered as a true Southern Lady and for your commitment to the beautification of Texas. There will not likely be another like you. God bless you and your family always.
July 16, 2007
July 16,2007
You will always be remembered as one
of the greatest first ladies in our
countries history.
May God bless you and your wonderful
family...Lady Bird Johnson
July 16, 2007
As in the children's book, MISS RUMPHIUS, where Miss Rumphius heeds her grandfather's advice to leave the world a more beautiful place than when she came into it by scattering lupine seeds wherever she goes, you, Mrs. Johnson have accomplished the same. Thank you for making our world more beautiful and for making us more aware of the beauty of nature.
July 16, 2007
may God be your comfort.
July 16, 2007
I offer my sincere sympathy and pray that the GOD of comfort and tender mercies be with you and your family during your times of quiet reflections in future days.
July 16, 2007
She was a wonderful lady and she will be dearly missed. We were on the street in JC and felt like the waves of Lynda and Luci were personal.
July 16, 2007
Our thoughts and Prayers are with the Johnson family.
July 16, 2007
I was a grad student in Washington DC at George Washington University when you became First Lady. I loved and admired you all these years and I mourn your passing . All the tributes about your kindness and generosity inspired me to be like you and think of others first. Rest in peace with your beloved and our beloved President LJB. And no more campaiging for a better seat at the foot of the Lord!
Love, Stephany Joy from Santa Rosa, California

a tribute to honor Lady Bird:

America is more beautiful
For all the things you've done
The seeds you've sown are bound to bloom
for centuries to come
You've inspired many souls
To carry on what you've begun
The seeds you've sown are bound to bloom
for centuries to come.

July 16, 2007
You will always be remembered as one of the greatest, most articulate, first ladies in our countries history. You beautification projects meant so much to this country. God bless you and your wonderful family...what a great service for a most deserving lady....Lady Bird Johnson
July 16, 2007
I did not know her personaly, but I know she was a great women. I just hope that everyone will try and remember what she has done, and continue to do what she would have wanted. It would have been my honor to have meet her even once.
July 16, 2007
Dear Claudia, You were a very ladylike First Lady and had impeccable girls and LBJ loved you and so did America! Love David Alan Davis, Tyrone (Age ll) and Jenny Macchiaverna Davis and pets.
July 16, 2007
Lady Bird gave me a better appreciation of nature and flowers. Every time I see a flower I think of her. I notice all wild flowers now, and thank God for them. God Bless her family!
July 16, 2007
Thank you, Lady Bird Johnson for all the flowers we now enjoy along our highways and in the cities.
Your vision made it possible.
Our condolences go out to your family.
Sincerely,
Inge McMillion
July 16, 2007
REST IN PEACE...YOU HAVE LIVED A LONG,HEALTHY AND JOYFUL LIFE... WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE...
July 16, 2007
I have little memories of President Johnson, as I was born in 1961. However I was born on August 27th, which I would forever remember as our president's birthday. I always felt a kinship toward Lady Bird, for this reason. I am sorry she has to go, but have to believe she is very happy. She has waited a long time to be with Lynden. You are in my prayers.
July 16, 2007
God Bless You.
July 16, 2007
I will remember Lady Bird for many things, but one of the most important is the highway beautification program she was deeply involved in. She made every thing more beautiful for us with her love of flowers.

Do you remember driving down a highway in the early to mid 1970s and seeing a sign that read Wildflower Project, Please Don't Mow'? At the time, I didn't know that it was Lady Bird behind this "wildflower project". The project was a GREAT success as we are treated to nature's endless bounty of wildflowers as we drive our countries Interstate Highways and many in state roads. And HeadStart - I can't imagine an America without HeadStart. Lady Bird Johnson is THE FIRST TRUE, U.S. pioneer who pushed for 'early intervention', (educational and clincial services for at risk and developmentally delayed children 3-5 years of age), something that is a given in clinical & educational terms at this time in history. You are well loved and will be dearly missed sweet Lady Bird. You came into this world and left it a better place and we owe you a huge debt of gratitude. Sincere condolences to the entire Johnson family.
July 16, 2007
To laugh often & much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics & to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Thank you Mrs Johnson for being a success. Texas and America will miss you
July 16, 2007
The world has lost an inspiring individual and gracious statesperson - but heaven has gained a star, and the Pearly Gates have their beautiful Lady Bird.
July 16, 2007
I was privileged to have worked for LBJ in Washington, D.C. when he was Majority Leader of the Senate and in the 1960 VP campaign. Knowing Lady Bird was especially a privilege. She was always a gracious hostess, a great and supportive wife, and a loving mother and grandmother. She will truly be missed, but the world is a better (and prettier) place because of her and her devotion to nature and the planet. She was the epitome of a First Lady...emphasis on Lady!
July 16, 2007
Lady Bird was one of the loveliest, most beautiful First Ladies we have had. She was truly "THE ROSE OF TEXAS" and holds a special place in my heart because my mother (she passed away in 2004) also loved wildflowers. She lived in Missouri. She would gather the seeds when they became available, or dig up a single plant and transplant it into her yard. She knew all the plants by their native name and could tell you the various ailments that they could be used for. She loved her flowers as much as Lady Bird. I hope that they get to meet each other in Heaven. Thank you for the lovely memories Mrs. Lady Bird "our Texas Rose".
July 16, 2007
Thank God we were blessed with her presence. She left Texas and the nation a better place than she found it. What an inspiration to make a difference!
July 16, 2007
May the angels carry you to heaven where there are no tears, only joy with the vision of Our God.
May the Yellow Rose of Texas rest in eternal peace and love.
July 16, 2007
The country has lost a national treasure, and Texas has lost its most precious jewel. May she enjoy the beauty of her gardens from Heaven.
July 16, 2007
Lady Bird made the world a more beautiful place in which to live.
God bless her for all of her efforts in life.
July 16, 2007
Our country was blessed by her charm, grace and wit; as well as her determination. I admired both the President and Mrs. Johnson for their devotion to each other, their family and our country.
Sincerely,
Deirdre Cerasa
July 16, 2007
Our family is truly blessed to have had a shining star among us like Lady Bird Johnson. Her legacy will live on through her beautify Texas and our nation. Let's all plant flowers and trees in her memory.
July 16, 2007
The nation and especially the State of Texas has been blessed by her life. She is already dearly missed.
July 16, 2007
I will admire Lady Bird because she truly cared about protecting, preserving and beautifying nature with grace, beauty and color. On my road trips when I see a patch of color it will always remind me of Lady Bird....God Bless The Family and Her Soul
July 16, 2007
THANK YOU FOR LETTING THE PUBLIC KNOW , I ADMIRED LADY BIRD. SHE WILL BE MISSED
July 16, 2007
GOD BLESS
July 16, 2007
Having been born in 1960, I grew up watching and admiring your strength, spirit, grace, and fortitutude during the good and not so good times. You are truly an inspiration to us all, and the world, Texas, and Austin are truly better because of you. I thank God for gracing us with your presence and gracefulness, and will always miss that beautiful smile and melodic Texas voice. You are truly an example of a life well lived. May God Bless You, and Thank You, Lady Bird!
July 16, 2007

July 16, 2007
Dear Luci, Ian and Family, I cannot imagine ever having the privlege of meeting or knowing anyone finer than Mrs. Johnson. She personified everything that is good and kind and beautiful. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
July 16, 2007
Lady Bird was a true Texas gem and Southern lady! Her sweet demeanor reminds me of my 4th-Generation Austinite Granny who is 90 years old this year.

I grew up on Balcones Drive and went to school with Lyn, Nicole, Brent, and Nicole. My deepest condolences go out to them and the rest of the family....
July 16, 2007
I will always think of you when the bluebonnets bloom. Thank you for all you and your family has done for us!!

This remarkable woman was a true daughter of Texas. She will be deeply missed. May God bless her and her loving family.
July 16, 2007
This was our first spring in Texas and the flowers were beautiful all over.
July 16, 2007
Those of us who grew up around you during your Washington years will remember the honor and privilege bestowed on us when asked to volunteer at Lyndon's Boyhood Home. Your grateful nation responds with tributes fitting for our 'lady'. We remember seeing you at church, or driving by, or at numerous teas. We remember you when we feel the breeze blowing through our beautiful Hill Country wildflowers and grasses. We remember your gracious presence. We shall miss you - always.
July 16, 2007
I loved hearing radio clips of Lady Bird speaking. She was a contemporary of my late mother, and they lived in the same dorm while at UT. I liked what one woman had to say about her: 'I love that woman. She brought Texas so much incredible class. She is the main reason I'm proud of being from Texas. She is in the grass, the flowers and the rain. She is everywhere. She is Texas' mother.'
July 16, 2007
My prayers and condolences are with the family of Lady Bird Johnson. I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy the beautiful Texas wildflowers. Her contributions live on as the flowers reseed and grow.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
July 16, 2007
A lady bird among the wildflowers....you will always be remembered when the flowers bloom.
July 16, 2007
Every Sring I'll be reminded of the contributions that you have made when the Bluebonnets bloom. Our loss is Heaven's gain.
July 16, 2007
I count myself among those that were fortunate enough to have met this incredible lady. My Dad worked on the LBJ as communications foreman (he took care of all the phones from 1966-1974) and I grew up with the Davis kids, the Malecheck kids, the Hardins, etc. What wonderful memories we have of caroling at the ranch, viewing movies in the hangar, riding horses, etc. But some of my fondest memories were of Lady Bird giving teas for the local ladies, she and Lyndon driving around the Pedernales in his convertible with their dog, and "Mr Jellybean" handing out candy to the children. Lady Bird is truly one of a kind, she was still attending everything she could even though her health had declined in recent years. I think the last time I saw her was at the Stonewall tree lighting ceremony in December 2005 and she was just as elegant and graceful as ever though she was unable to speak. She is the kind of person that the world needs more of -- a truly remarkable LADY!
She enhanced beauty, life, love, and laughter for us all!
Lynda, Luci and family,
"When someone you love becomes a memory let the memory become a treasure"
My heart and prayers are with your family!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

To The Entire Lady Bird Johnson Family:
Our thoughts, prayers and sympathy are with all of you. God Bless You All during this most difficult time. Lady Bird was a great Southern lady who will be long remembered. May she rest in peace.
July 16, 2007
I visited the LBJ Library and was lucky enough she happened to be there. I was impressed with all of the beautification that Lady Bird inspired. A wonderful American Lady.
July 16, 2007
Dear Lady Bird,

I will miss you. At 21, I cast my first vote for your husband, LBJ. When I was 25 or so and lived in San Antonio, I often went out with others to see you all fly in to Randolph Air Force Base on Air Force One on your way to the ranch. All of you were so nice—you always came over and shook hands. Just a few years later, I stood in line for Lyndon’s lying in state. To my greatest regret, time has passed and I was physically unable to do the same for you.

My parents lived in Blanco. My husband's friend in Corpus knew you all and had Sam Houston Johnson as a house guest at times. In other small ways my life has continuously brushed up against yours. So, despite having only shaken your hand, I feel a deep Texas connection and kinship with you and your family.

I remember living off in New Orleans for a while and reading your "White House Diary." Your descriptions of going back to central Texas on vacations made me so homesick that shortly thereafter we were moving back and I was tooting my car horn to the cadence of "The Yellow Rose of Texas" as I crossed the state line and headed for Austin. When I think of your passing, the refrain from some song keeps running through my head: "Another piece of America gone . . ."

Goodbye Lady Bird--we love you.
July 16, 2007
You were one of the best ambassadors this state has ever had, and will be remembered with love and gratitude for all that you did for Texas and this nation. I wish peace to your family as they confront the hole your leaving has caused.
July 16, 2007
God bless Ms. Johnson and her family. We are all so very sad at this time, but we will always remember her each time we see a beautiful flower. She was a lovely representation of all the good that is Texas: quiet strength, stalwart convictions, graciousness and kindess. She has always made me proud to call myself a Texan. Ms. Lady Bird Johnson is our royalty and she has left us a fine legacy.
July 16, 2007
Pretty Lady Bird, what an example you are. I am sorry I never met you. Thank you.
July 16, 2007
Your flowers will last forever, as you in our hearts.
July 16, 2007
One of a kind, we will miss her very much.
July 16, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. She made Texas a beautiful state with her dreams which pasted on to so many other people who will keep those dreams alive. God Bless You and Heaven has a Wonderful Angel who will watch over all of us now.
July 16, 2007
Mrs. Johnson Thank You for the Flowers and your beautiful sweet smile that you have given to all of us over the years. The world is such a better place because of you and President Johnson. Now you are home with him and the Lord. Your work is finally finished.
July 16, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was the great lady of our time. Her lovely ways and voice and her support of civil rights and her beautification of America will forever live in the history of our country. And I loved President Johnson, as well. They are now together in Heaven. Thank God that we had both of them. You will be missed, Mrs. Johnson.
July 16, 2007
Thank you, Lady Bird, for showing us what grace and beauty is really all about.
July 16, 2007
Grace had a new meaning with the
arrival of Lady Bird Johnson. She
was all of it.
July 16, 2007
My Deepest Sympathy to the Family
Thank You Lady Bird for the many gracious tasks and services you have done for America. You were a very wonderful First Lady.
Susan Roscillo Largo, Fl.
July 16, 2007
Ms Johnson: we are so lucky to shared our lives with you; may you rest peacefully knowing you touched so many. As a Texan now living in the D.C. area, your span reached from Texas to D.C. and back.
July 16, 2007
Ms. Lady Bird, you were such a delight to many Americans as First Lady. I was 8 years old when LBJ and yourself were thrust unexpectedly to lead our nation. And, you helped your husband bring our country out of sorrow during those dark days after JFK's assassination. Thank you for your kindness, your work for beautifying the environment and for all the memories.
July 16, 2007
Our mother of Texas has passed away. Every spring that I see a bluebonnet I will shed a tear. You will be missed.
July 16, 2007
May God bless the Johnson family in this time of sorrow. Mrs. Johnson, or Lady Bird, was one of my role models growing up. I hope that she and your Daddy are walking hand in hand and laughing together right now in a wonderful field of heavenly wildflowers.
July 16, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson will always be an icon: an example of choosing correctly, loving openly, and living joyfully.
July 16, 2007
MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS ARE WITH ALL THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WHAT A GREAT LADY SHE WAS.
July 16, 2007
As an employee of KLBJ in Austin, I worked for Lady Bird for almost six years, at through company functions, spent many a wonderful evening at the ranch. I came to know Lady Bird as the single-most influential, effective and un-preposessing human beings I've ever come to know. When I left Austin for Nashville, TN some years back, I vowed to return for her funeral when that eventuality came to pass. Alas, I was not able to come. She will be sorely missed, and we can only dream and hope that her like shall ever pass this way again. My condolences to Luci and Lynda for their loss... our loss as well.
July 16, 2007
Mrs Johnson
I will always cherish the few minutes you shared with me at the LBJ library and at the Stonewall Ranch. I was the GSA telephoneman that was brought in on a capterpiller during a flood at the Perdenales.I always enjoyed the serenity of the LBJ ranch doing the secret servive detail telephones. You will be missed dearly, but remembered forever. God Bless You and President LBJ.
July 16, 2007
A beautiful Texas woman will be missed. Thank-you for all the flowers that adorned our beloved Texas. Respectfully Jan Rains Cromleigh
July 16, 2007
Proudly we salute the goodness and legacy of Mrs. Johnson.
July 16, 2007
You were a great lady and a wonderful role model. You played your part in history and life with grace and intelligence.
July 16, 2007
Texas & the nation has lost a great lady. Our thoughts & prayers are with the family & friends.
July 16, 2007
We so enjoyed our 50th Marshall High School Reunion! Lady Bird you were such a blessing. You and LBJ were there for us when we needed you. Thank you my Friend. God Bless You.
July 16, 2007
May you rest peacefully now lying among the beauty that was created by you and only second in beauty to your own. God Bless.
July 16, 2007
You were a gracious lady who made me proud to be an East Texan. You brought beauty, grace, and a quiet elegance to all America, even Washington.
Thank you for this and for being so kind as to respond to my letters about our common heritage in Karnack.
July 16, 2007
Dear Lady Bird, you are a great example of the saying "Behind every great man there is a great woman." We are grateful for your contributions in making this country better, socially and aesthetically.

Goodbye, our charming First Lady, and we thank God for the precious 94 years that you spent with us here on earth.
July 16, 2007
I was saddened to hear the passing of Lady Bird Johnson. She was a very special person to Texas, and the USA. She never forgot her roots in Deep East Texas. I read an article in our local newspaper where she and President Johnson believed to have first announced his running for office here in Lufkin, starting at state level and working himself up. That is a cherished past time of Lufkin that I hope will never be left behind. We thank you Lady Bird for all you did, you might have spoken softly, but your actions were spoken loudly!!
July 16, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was a woman of courage, dignity and honor. She and her husband gave America a hope of a better future. I was a child when they led America and I got this sense they truly wanted the best for all americans. Mrs. Johnson's beautification program was an example of her great vision. I will remember her with great fondness.
July 16, 2007
One of my most fond childhood memories is of meeting Lady Bird at the Excelsior House in Jefferson at a reception in which the Bluebirds and Camp Fire Girls took part when I was only about seven years old.

For many years during my early teens, I also took pride in showing tourists the "Lady Bird Johnson" room at the Excelsior House during Pilgrimage.

My most sincere condolences to her family. Be joyous in the fact that she lived a long and full life, making the impact on our environment and our country that is witnessed by the tribute of every flower we see blooming along the roadways and in the meadows of our state.
July 16, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird Johnson for making the great State of Texas and our nation a beautiful place to live. While visiting my sister in Austin, Texas back in the 90's with my family, we had an opportunity to visit the LBJ ranch and President Johnson's boyhood home in Johnson City, Texas. My sister remarked about how beautiful the Texas wildflowers looked then (it was springtime) and told me Lady Bird Johnson was responsible for the beautification of the State of Texas and the U.S. through her many acts of kindness throughout her lifetime.
I was in complete awe of the wildflowers growing alongside the roads in the Texas hill country. It will be a memory that will last me until the day I die.
May people always remember you when they see wildflowers growing along our highways in this country, Lady Bird Johnson.
July 16, 2007
Lady Bird, you did our nation proud, all of us!
July 16, 2007
Many blessings and much comfort for the family. Although I never met her, I cried when I heard of her passing. She is a great lady and touched so many hearts. Thank you, Lady Bird.
July 16, 2007
We only knew Mrs Johnson as the First Lady and as a native Texan. She will be remembered for much, much more. With deepest sympathy.
Geraldine Welborn & Family
July 16, 2007
She was such a wonderful lady. She made Texas proud. Her grace will never be forgotten. Heaven is filled with beautiful Texas bluebonnets and wild flowers now ... and, the sweetest flower of all, Lady Bird Johnson. Your family is so blessed with memories ... our prayers are with you during this very hard time.
July 16, 2007
Hello Lady Bird's Family. I am very sorry for your loss. I wanted to tell you that I read the children's book about Lady Bird, titled "Lady Bird Johnson, Making Our Neighborhoods Beautiful," to my young children (ages 6 and 9) when they were even younger. I got the book at the Wildflower Center Bookstore. I wanted to use it to inspire my kids to get involved in the environment. I showed them how one of the most important ladies in our country cared so much about keeping our land clean and beautifying it. Lady Bird's life is a good example. We feel like we know her personally. I am proud to say that my kids are young environmental stewards. They were with me this weekend at the annual Keep Texas Beautiful Conference when we heard about her passing. It saddened us all, but it also made us proud to be a part of the environmental way of life she lived and inspired. God bless you all, and please know that she will live on in so many ways, in so many hearts and actions.
July 16, 2007
Mrs. Johnson leaves a wonderful legacy for her family and for those of us who admired her from afar. Those strong Texas women, nurtured by that pioneering spirit, have graced our state and our country with their talents. She will be missed.
July 16, 2007
God Bless the Johnson family..Lady Bird Johnson was a very fine lady and will be missed..may she rest in peace..I have always admired her..
July 16, 2007
Standing by the roadside in Dripping Springs, I was so surprised to see the windows rolled down and Lady Bird's family thanking us for being there as the cortege passed. Our intention was to let the Johnson family know how much they meant to us and we received a wonderful gift of appreciation from them. How special that was. Lady Bird will be missed but never forgotten for what she has given to our country, our state and our lives. And how proud she must be of her family!
July 16, 2007
may god be with the family at this sad time, usa , has lost a great lady ,we lost a one and only brother in nov. 06. he took mom and dad down the road and mom really love them flowers ..lady bird rest now.
July 16, 2007
My sincere condolances to the family. When a young lawyer, I represented T. J. Taylor who was a close friend of my Dad's. Lady Bird grew up just a few miles from Waskom where I was born and later became a close friend of her cousin, Winston Taylor. While County Judge of Harrison County, I was in Washington, D.C. on many occasions and was always invited to the Johnson home along with others from Marshall. When I was a member of the Texas Supreme Court, I was invited to the Ranch at Stonewall and was at the LBJ Library when it was dedicated. Bill Moyers and I sat next to each other during the ceremony at a time while I was serving in the Texas House of Representatives. Lady Bird was always very kind to me and my family as was her father, uncle and cousin. She will be missed as a friend, neighbor from East Texas, and fellow Democrat. May Lady Bird now rest in peace.

Our condolences to the family of Mrs. Johnson. The world is a far more beautiful place because of her work, and she was an inspiration to us all. She will be remembered every time we see a wildflower or a small child entering Head Start.
July 15, 2007
You are all in my thoughts and prayers! Lady Bird gave all of us a beautiful gift to share - the beauty that God has given to us - his lovely flowers and nature. For this, we all appreciate the work that she did to make this state and this country more beautiful!
July 15, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
July 15, 2007
My condolences to the Johnson family. The nation has lost a lovely First Lady who will always be remembered for her quiet strength and her commitment to beauty.

July 15, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was our favorite first ladie.She will be missed by all of us.God bless her family;Leo & Mayme Huppert
July 15, 2007
As an 11 year old 6th grader living as a US ex-pat in Caracas, Venezuela, I well remember watching President Johnson take the oath of office with Lady Bird at his side. Her strength and self-assurance was always evident, no matter what the occasion. Later in my life after moving back to the US and to Texas, I came to realize just how much she had done beautifying the countryside. Never again will I look at another wildflower without thinking of Lady Bird Johnson and the gracious Lady that she was!
July 15, 2007
Our condolenses to the Johnson Family. She made the world a more beautiful place. She was Texas.
July 15, 2007
For a great, dear lady. I never knew you, but I still cried as I heard your family members talk about your life. I was 3 when LBJ became president, growing up in San Antonio. I've enjoyed your bluebonnets all my life. You will be missed.
July 15, 2007
Dear Lynda and Luci,
Your mother has deservedly received many accolades for her Texas beautification program, and we will all remember her for that. I will also remember that, to my knowledge, Lady Bird never spoke a negative word about anyone including those with different political affiliations. What a wonderful world we could have if politicians (and all the rest of us) could follow that beautiful example of kindness. What a truly great lady she was -- a devoted wife and mother who raised two daughters to be gracious also.
My deepest sympathy, as I know you will miss her tremendously.
July 15, 2007
My deepest sympathy to Lynda and Luci. I grew up watching your family on television and always admired your mother so much. I know you have wonderful memories to treausre. Our country has lost a great woman.
July 15, 2007
Deepest Sympathy to the Johnson family. I was 11 year's old when JFK was killed in Dallas, Tx. I remember well LBJ taking office after that and remember well I admired LBJ & Lady Bird Johnson, even at 11 year's old. It was a part of history I will never forget.
July 15, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was one of my favorite first ladies. Her work in making our country, and our great State of Texas, gorgeous with wildflowers will not soon be forgotten - nor will she. The family is in my prayers. Thank you for sharing your Mother and NeeNee with us.
July 15, 2007
Thanks for all the lives you have touched and the awareness you brought to some God's creations..Rest in peace.
July 15, 2007
Dear Johnson Family,

I know I as well as many other Americans feel the deep personal loss of our beloved First Lady Lady Bird Johnson. Truly, she was a "Lady's Lady", as beautiful as her wildflowers. She will never be forgotten and the great legacy she left us will live forever.

With Sincere Sympathy -- B Harmon
July 15, 2007
Well done, good and faithful servant. You are a role model for all of us Texas women. Thank you, Mrs. Johnson. May God hold your family, and all who love you, in his hands, now and always.

Gracias por todas las flores!
July 15, 2007
Thank you, thank you, thank you! America, and especially TEXAS is beautiful because of you. Rest in peace sweet lady. My parents (age 78), my husband (native of MO, but named after the President) and I (Ft. Worth!), my children and grandchildren have enjoyed each spring viewing the beautiful bluebonnets and wildflowers you showed us.
July 15, 2007
Lucy, Linda, and families,
While my wife, Lana, and I have never met you, you and your parents have held a special place in our hearts not only for great service to country but for the beacon of kindness and influence you have shown my brother, Pat, over the past many years. We share your loss with the rest of the country and offer you our thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.
July 15, 2007
Thank you Mrs. Johnson for being a great leader in making our country so beautiful. Your hard work and dedication to keeping nature splendid is so treasured. What a truly remarkable model you have been to all humanity. Because of your efforts, we will always marvel at the beauty of the wildflowers, and indeed nature itself.
July 15, 2007
We will miss you Mrs. Johnson. You have done so much for this country and for the City of Austin. God Bless You!!!
July 15, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson is a source of pride for Texas. Her legacy is wildflowers, yet her grace and dignity best describe her heritage. Her memory has earned respect and love from all citizens.
July 15, 2007
Dear Johnson Family,
Your loss it truly the loss of the Great State Of Texas. Mrs. Johnson will long be remembered for her endless work on making Texas Highways a feast for travelers eyes. As a former employee of Texas Parks and Wildlife I salute your Mother on her life. I know heaven will be a more beautiful place when I get there because of your mother. God Bless you all.
July 15, 2007
Thank you for your grace, determination and foresight. Your touch is everywhere and as a result has improved the quality of my life and those I love. My thoughts and prays are with Lady Bird's family.
July 15, 2007
FROM MY FAMILY TO YOURS,OUR DEEPEST AND SINCERE CONDOLENCES.SHE HAD A LIFE WELL LIVED!!!
July 15, 2007
Do you remember driving down a highway in the 1970's & early 1980's and seeing a sign that read 'Wildflower Project, Please Don't Mow'? At the time, I didn't know that it was Lady Bird behind this "wildflower project". The project was a GREAT success as we are treated to nature's boundy of wildflowers as we drive our countries Interstate Highways and many in state roads. And HeadStart - I can't imagine an America without HeadStart. Lady Bird was the pioneer for 'early intervention' - something that is a given in clinical terms at this time in history. You are loved and will be dearly missed sweet Lady Bird. You came into this world and left it a better place and we owe you a huge debt of gratitude. Condolences to the entire Johnson family.
July 15, 2007
I just would like to say that we have lost a wonderful person.And to say thank you for everything that she has done for us.You will remain in our prayers and in our hearts. God bless you the family at this time.
July 15, 2007
Thanks for all the wildflowers and supporting civl rights. Keep those bluebonnets coming.

From the little ole' town of El Campo, TX - I was a little girl and remember seeing LBJ and Lady Bird on the caboose of a train (I guess campaigning for TX Senator) and my Dad was right there. He admired LBJ and felt he was the "ONLY GOOD ONE" politician and the rest were CROOKS???? (You have to know he was a farmer of imigrant parents from the Cz. Rep.). When I look at the Johnson's, LBJ and Lady Bird, they favor my parents so much, my Dad and my Mom - long gone -(in stature and looks) esp. when my Dad dressed in suit and tie and wore that Stetson hat - Texas has so much clout and class - I always kept up and admired everything about the Johnson's and their daughters - the wedding at the White House, and esp. had the great pleasure of visiting the Johnson RANCH having to evacuate from Katrina and finally making it to the Hill Country that evening from Sugar Land, TX. The next day having spare time - my husband and I saw the SIGN for the JOHNSON Ranch - enjoyed that visit so very much. Still looking forward to seeing Lady Bird's Wildflower Museum in Austin and esp. since one of my friends from a past investment club we were on together, was at the time also on the Board of Directors for Lady Bird's Wildflower Museum and hosted a benefit a couple of years ago, and being my grandchildren live close by. A beautiful inspiration of a Mother, and a First Lady.....and the legacy of traveling I-10 to San Antonio and Hwy. 71 to AUSTIN to see the lovely blue bonnets on the road side in spring make you feel so proud of TEXAS ......Thank you Lady Bird!
July 15, 2007
Thank you so much Ms. Johnson for being such a role model for all of us. You stood up for topics not always popular and showed us that taking a stand does make a difference. I saw you once in an audio book store here in Austin, so I know your love of books continued all your life. It was my honor to go and say goodbye to you at the Library. Rest in peace and know we appreciate all you did for us.
July 15, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird Johnson for all of your contributions to this great country.
July 15, 2007
to The Family of Lady Bird Johnson:

Your loss is great, and with her love for beauty, you will always have your mother with you in beautiful wildflowers, beautification projects, conservation endeavors, and within each of you. She loved life, others, and loved you, her family, with all of her heart. We will always be grateful to and thankful for Lady Bird Johnson allowing us to know her as First Lady, and a dear lady who we all attached ourselves to because of her grace, beauty, love for others, and kindness to all.

May God continue to bless each of you every day in your loss, and may your hearts heal with the loving touch of your mother's love she had for you and everyone. She will always be the "First Lady" with her style and grace that she adorned all of us with, Texan, American, and World Citizens.

With deepest respect,

. Thanks for all you have done for education and the beautification of America.I was a young teacher in my early 20sin New York City when the Head Start program was enacted. I also remember working in the Great Society programs. I later moved to Houston, in the 80s, and always felt she was a great lady. The world has lost a great first lady, and a wonderful person

A great long lived life for a great lady. I served in the Navy during the Vietnam war and was always struck by her graciousness and gentle personality. Rest in Peace. It is well deserved.
July 15, 2007
Please accept my deepest sympathies. I will think of Lady Bird whenever I drive through the Hill Country and see the lovely wildflowers in the spring. She was a true Texas Lady.
July 15, 2007
When the wildflowers bloom each Spring,we will remember Lady Bird and smile. The Lord truly blessed this family with her existence.He will surely be their comfort in her death .Her legacy will be one of joy and beauty.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

July 15, 2007
God needed someone to help in Heaven's gardens. So he called home the "flower lady". God bless you, Mrs. Johnson, and your beautiful family.
July 15, 2007
She was a great lady. Did a great thing for our highways, Wish all states were as clean as Texas is.
I love to travel thru Texas even though it takes days. Ha

Lady Bird Johnson will be a part of history. and we will alway's remember her for her kindness. Barbara Lancaster
July 15, 2007
One of the most impressive history lessons I ever had was from my Mother when I was a child about Lady Bird Johnson.
It revolved around the Beautification of America and how if we all contributed to the Pennies for Wildflowers campaign we could all help "Lady Bird" make and keep America beautiful.
What a wonderous statement for a legacy of love.
July 15, 2007
I have admired our former First Lady for a long time, and looked to her for inspiration on more than one occasion. I hope her family knows how very much she was loved and appreciated by many of our nations "common citizens," of which I am a proud member. I pray God bless her family and close friends with peace at this time and always.
July 15, 2007
My heart goes out to the Johnson family in the loss of their matriarch, Lady Bird. As a black man, I’ll always be grateful for the courage LBJ showed by diligently pushing the civil rights legislation in the 1960s. He kept pushing despite the resistance of his fellow southerners. I can’t help but think he had the full support and encouragement of Lady Bird in this historic, ground-breaking legislation. “Behind every good man, is a good woman”.

Thank you, Lady Bird and spouse.

Although I'm not a native Texan, I have lived in Austin since 1967 when I was 9 years old. Christmas 1972 my youth group from Woodlawn Baptist Church in South Austin went on a ski trip to New Mexico, but our bus had a horrifc wreck with a cattle truck outside of Clovis. 19 people were killed and I was one of the 15 who survived. President Johnson and Lady Bird attended the mass funeral at Municipal Auditorium, which was later recorded as his last public appearance. When he died a month later, my mother and I stood in line to pay our respects at the LBJ library. So it was only fitting that I go to the same place, 34 years later to pay my respects to her.

It's so obvious how treasured she was by her daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. And we, the great people of Texas, are forever indebted to her for making our Hill Country beautiful!
July 15, 2007
What a wonderful and gracious First Lady and human being we had in Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson! She loved nature and wildflowers and insured that love and awareness was passed on to the rest of the nation. Mrs. Johnson was a gifted Ambassador of good will for our nation. May she rest in peace among the oaks, pastures, and the river with her beloved husband and President, Lyndon B. Johnson.
July 15, 2007
July 15, 2007
I know she will be missed by all who loved her. She lived a good long life. May the rest of her family(her two daughters, grandchildren and great-great grandchildren carry on her legacy. Also May God hold her family in the palm of his hand. God let her live a good long life-94 yrs. Barbara Suzanne Stephens
July 15, 2007
My condolences and sympathy to all the family. The entire earth is a better place due to Ms. Lady Bird's efforts to take care of our environment. I would encourage all Americans to visit the Wildflower Center to see all it's beauty and think of the lovely lady who saw to it that we could share in nature's beauty. To Linda and Luci, what a wonderful legacy you have to follow. I could see your mother in both of you while watching the services yesterday and today. May you find comfort in knowing that God has his most beautiful flower in his garden in Heaven. She will always be missed.
July 15, 2007
Lynda,Luci & Family: Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of a true "Lady". Please find comfort in that a nation mourns with you and also has fond memories of Your Mother. GOD Bless You All and GOD Bless the USA.
July 15, 2007
My heaart pours out to all Lady Birds family and friends for they have lost their Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. We have lost a legecy that will continue on for generations and generations. Growing up my mother and a family friend were amoung those groups that help Lady Bird get the beautification of Texas up and growing into what it is today. I as a child of 10 remembering meeting Lady Bird and in our family album a picture of Lady Bird, My Mother and myself, a picture that I will cherish all my life.Thank you for sharing your Mother, grandmother and Great grandmother with the world. Her physical being will be greatly miss but her legacy will forever live.
July 15, 2007
I am a born "true" Texan living in NC..To this day, every time I see the flowers on the highways I think of, Lady Bird. She was truly a "lady"...Women in "politics" today need to set the example she has set all these years..Her modesty, and meekness, is what has gainned her so much "respect" through all these years...Linda Hancock, Bolivia, NC
July 15, 2007
Everytime I travel the Texas Highways to go home, I always enjoy the beauty you have help create. You don't know how much I appreciate your generousity toward the environment. I thank for having the heart for all you have done. My deepest sympathy to your family Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson.
July 15, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson lived a beautiful life. Her treasured legacy continues. I wish for her daughters and for all of her family the strength to endure this loss.

Lady Bird Johnson's passing has left sorrow in our hearts but her contributions and memories will continue to bring light and joy to Texas and this nation. Our sympathies to her entrie family; Lady Bird Johnson will be missed.
July 15, 2007
Lady Bird was a true inspiration to all who knew her and her work to make America beautiful. She was the one who motivated Pres. Johnson and stood by his side in the good and bad times. She was a First Lady in every sense of the word and was scandal free due to her personal beliefs and character. We are all better off for having such a wonderful person who cared about America and her people. I pray she is now First Lady in heaven.
July 15, 2007
In memory of Mrs. Hattie Harper of
Atlanta, Georgia,

Whom admired your grace and beauty,may you be welcomed by the
Lord himself.
July 15, 2007
To me she was a true Texas Icon.
July 15, 2007
I was about 12 yrs. old when Lady Bird was the first lady. However, history of this great lady will always have a place in my heart. She is another great person that truly helped our country. I send my prayers to the entire family.
July 15, 2007
My young son asked, "Mom, who was Lady Bird Johnson?" I told him, "Son, whenever you see those beautiful wildflowers all along the interstate highways, that's Lady Bird Johnson." Mrs. Johnson, you will always be with us and Heaven will be even more beautiful!!
July 15, 2007
My deepest condolences to the family. What a great Lady. One of the memories I will allways have is hunting on the ranch next door to her's in 1979. I was hunting with some of Her secret service team. The second night we were at the ranch a car pulls up and out comes Lady Bird and Liz Carpentar. She came over to make sure we were OK. They stood by the campfire and talked to us like we were old friends. I will never forget what a sweet lady she was.
July 15, 2007
To the family of Lady Bird Johnson
you all have my families condolences . Your Mother , Grandmother , Mother-in-law was a great woman. GOD Be With You All.

REST IN PEACE BEAUTIFUL LADY BIRD JOHNSON
July 15, 2007
What a wonderful LADY she was ! Her legacy will endure long after most "first Ladies" are forgotten.I will think of her each spring as I marvel at the beauty of God's creation along our Texas highways and bi-ways. She was truly the "salt of the earth".
July 15, 2007
A true Great lady in any category.She raised her daughters to be great ladies like her.I felt comfort,the way the daughters/granddaughters,conducted Lady Bird's funeral..dignified.

I was born Linda Bird in the Texas Panhandle town of Pampa. My maternal grandparents were the Johnsons. Throughout my high school and college days in the late 60's I was actually nicknamed "Lady Bird". Even today a few close friends still call me the same. Lady Bird Johnson, I will miss knowing you were still around to remind me of my own nicknames that were always meant to connect to you in a very very special way. May the Lord bless and comfort your family in their time of need.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

July 15, 2007
There is a human bond that connects us all. It may be like a delicate thread, but in special times it become like a line of steel that helps us bind us...one to another. I truly hope this strand makes your sorrow more bearable, and in the long run, that is what really matters. Mrs Johnson will be missed by her family, friends and the nation. But, the thread of our human bonds will always keep some part of her with us all. I truly hope that it will be an added source of comfort to you at this time of grief to know that others care.
July 15, 2007
It's a privilege to pay tribute to a real Lady; an example to women everywhere. You are what feminine should mean and always will be remembered as truly beautiful.
July 15, 2007
Lady Bird you are an inspiration to us all. For years I have planted wildflowers in my flower garden. I will continue to plant the wildflowers and pass this on to my two children. Thank you for making a difference to Texas and to the United States
July 15, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. The gates of heaven have a new angel ready to make a beautiful garden. May you rest in peace.

Mrs. Johnson certainly personified the saying by nature lovers and campers to always leave your campsite better than you found it. She certainly did.

July 15, 2007
To the Johnson Family:
Your mother was truly an inspiration to me as a woman and as a Texan. Her legacy of strength, caring, and foresight is one that your family and this wonderful state can be proud of. My grandparents were guests at your father's funeral and although we were unable to personally come out to Austin to pay our respects I assure you that she will be in our hearts and prayers.
July 15, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson was a big part in my life. I was told by my father that she named me. My mother told me one day I will understand. My mother told me that she is a great woman which my mom smiled (She was an angel from God). Lady Bird Johnson made many people smiled. I am saddened to here of her departure from this earth. She has really inspired me and is a true blessing to me and the American people. She will truly be missed. My condolences go out to the family. LOVE ALWAYS!
July 15, 2007
What a wonderful legacy she left - working her entire adult life to protect the environment, improve education for children in poverty and champion civil rights. She was an example of graciousness and strength in both her public and private life. She is truly a role-model for all Texans. God's blessings on her family.

Lady Bird Johnson was remembered in a special and significant way at her funeral services yesterday. She did so much in both little and large ways to improve life in this country, for its citizens, that what she said and did will live on long after she has passed into history and been lost in the memory by many people in Texas and the US.
July 15, 2007
Of all the beautiful flowers you spread across the Great State of Texas? You were the most beautiful flower of all. Like my own Mother who loved beauty and democracy.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

July 15, 2007
Thank you Mrs. Johnson for all you have given Texas, our Country and your Family. Your beauty, grace and charm were unparalled! We'll remember you always. Thank you Dear Lady Bird. With love and admiration,
July 15, 2007
To The Johnson Family: When Lyndon was President, it was a big thing in my family, because since he was a Virgo, and I also a Virgo, my family thought that a sign of good luck! I had the great fortune of meeting/befriending a cousin of your family, Randy Johnson, who was my camp counselor at Camp Cheley in Estes Park, Colorado during 1968-1970. Randy helped me overcome paralyzing shyness, to reach out, take risks; most of all, to love myself, and especially taught me self-confidence. She changed my life forever-that was a huge turning point in my life. After I left Camp Cheley, Randy continued to write me for the next year and a half or so to see how I was doing. I know the qualities of warmth, genuine caring, nuturing, listening; understanding that she displayed towards me then, extend throughtout your lovely family. I still have the framed photo of Randy and I standing in front of the camp door together. Thank you Randy. Bless you all. Bless You Lady Bird - I would have liked to have known you personally - I did enjoy your spunk- and we'd of had a grand time comparing notes on our journalism degrees. I still miss the '60s - it's as if it were just yesterday - - - - - - -.
July 15, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.

Gracious, generous, beautiful, intelligent, witty and kind Lady: Thank you for being the President's heart and right hand during times that tried all of our souls. Thank you for standing up for basic Civil Rights back when so many did not in this "land of the free". Thank you for your love of and investment in wildflowers and the environment. Thank you for your philanthropy that has been felt in innumerable ways. My sincerest condolences to all of your family who, as eloquent as they are, will miss you more than they can ever say. God willing, you are walking as we speak in a field of unimaginably beautiful bluebonnets and other wildflowers hand in hand with your darling Lyndon! I am sure he rejoices that you are finally Home. God bless and keep you and give comfort to your family and dear friends. As for the rest of us, Texas and this country shine a little less brightly today!

I want to pass along my sincere condolences to the Johnson family. Lady Bird was a beautiful person, a gracious and caring First Lady and wonderful American. I had the pleasure of visiting Austin, Texas a couple of years ago and I did notice the many wildflowers that covered the fields along the highways. I was able to get a better feel for the person she was by visiting the LBJ Library and had hoped to possibly meet her as I heard she would visit the site herself many times. Thank you Lady Bird for your service to our country. May you rest in peace.
July 14, 2007

July 14, 2007
We lived in Texas for a few years and have a daughter who was born there.We have pictures of our children with bluebonnets surrounding them.
The gift of bluebonnets and other lupines blooming every spring is one that she gave that will live on for years and years. That isn't the most important thing that she helped happen, but it is one of the most visible, and it is part of what makes Texas, Texas.
She is someone I wish I had had the good fortune to meet, and I'm sorry to see her go, even if she had a long and wonderful life. She was a part of Texas, and she will be missed.
July 14, 2007
What a kind and gentle lady. My prayers are with her family at this time. She served her nation with distinction and will be truly missed. May she rest in peace.

Lady Bird Johnson was always my favorite First Lady. I was a teenager when President and Mrs Johnson entered the White House. I have thought of Mrs Johnson often over the years and was always happy when I saw her on the news looking as beautiful as ever. My condolenses to Mrs Johnson's Family and Friends and to the Citizens of the USA who have truly, lost a Beautiful Lady Bird.

With Sympathy
July 14, 2007
My memories are full of this former First Lady from when I was a married pregnant mother to be during her time in the White House. A role model wife and full of life for we lovers of culture and growers of flowers. My latest joy was creating a "Three Kings" horse blanket for her delight. Blessings on her daughters and the staff who took such good care of her. She was our "Amazing Grace"
July 14, 2007
To all the Johnson family my most sincere sympathy,and our prayers are with you during this sad time.My brother Alfred Rodriguez was a ranch hand(now deceased)at the LBJ Ranch during the White House years so I know they all have gotten togther in heaven.Rest in Peace Lady Bird.
July 14, 2007
One great lady , the mold was broken with you , you will be missed
July 14, 2007
Every time I see wildflowers and billboard free highways I think of Lady Bird and her "gifts" to this country. She was a wonderful first lady.
July 14, 2007
In your wonderful diary, you wrote that you wished that you had not encouraged the use of the nickname, because so few persons knew your real name. The Johnson presidency was the first one that I can remember. Thank you for your contributions, Mrs. Claudia Taylor Johnson.

July 14, 2007
To the gracious Queen who brought flowers to the highways! Thank you for your vision. I will think about you every time I see wild flowers on our US highways. God and your beloved husband, President Johnson are happy with you in their presence!
July 14, 2007
She was a true native Texan who loved her State and the people of Texas. She will be missed.
July 14, 2007
Lynda & Luci,
My thoughts are with you as you adjust to the loss of your mother. I remember first meeting Mrs. Johnson when Lynda and I were classmates at O'Henry Jr. High here in Austin. I was instantly intrigued with her voice. It reminded me of a gentle breeze. Over the years, each time I saw her or heard her name, I would be reminded of the first time I heard that voice. Her beautiful voice later changed our nation in so many wonderful ways.
In the spring, when the wildflowers are swaying in the breeze, I will not only be reminded of all the beauty she brought to our country, but of her gentle voice speaking ever so softly to the flowers and people she loved.
July 14, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was a great lady and a true daughter of Texas. My feelings and condolences go to the family. A greatful nation will miss her
July 14, 2007
To the Family and the State of Texas...

With Deepest sympathy for your loss..

In travelling the great state of Texas we soon found that Lady Bird made many wonderful differences there. Even to be enjoyed by visitors. We are glad to have seen some of her legacy. May she rest in peace.

Lady Bird Johnson was a wonderful human being and we will always remember her. Her wildflower plantings were an amazing addition to our roadways.
We are so very sorry for your loss, but know she will live on in our hearts. She was definitely "one in a million".

Love
Do you know
how much I love you
even though I am not there
can you feel my arms around you
to let you know I care

can you smell the fragrance
of blossoms in the spring
the warm wonderful feelings
life experiences can bring

can you hear my message
as it rides along the wind
to let you know
I AM IN HEAVEN
and it's just around the bend

can you feel my presence
as you look up to the sky
just imagine I'm an ANGEL
on a cloud that's drifting by:

Theresa Loder and family
July 14, 2007

Texas mourns as does our family...and, at the same time, we celebrate a life well lived. Her contributions to our state and our nation will live on and continue to be a tribute to Lady Bird Johnson and your family's untiring efforts to make this a better world. Thank you.
July 14, 2007
Sincere thank you to Lady Bird for her tireless efforts to improve the environment and beautify the land we love, especially in Texas. She was a shining star and her environmental legacy is unquestionable and beautiful.
July 14, 2007
A life well lived by example.Even as a young child in the 1960's I always took note to her gentle support to our country. Relatives living in Washington at the time of the Kennedy/Johnson years have provided me with a treasure trove of information on this well remembered administration. My love for the natural beauty of the United States was influenced by this gracious lady. We can celebrate her life in each beautiful flower both cultivated and wild that provides for us the natural beauty that we can appriciate in every state.
July 14, 2007
I admired your faithfulness to your husband,you stood by your man through good times and bad,we need more woman like that in the world today!..I admire your work with wildflowers,we sometimes take for granted these beautiful gifts from God,and we need to be good stewards of the Earth..You are like a beautiful wildflower,may you rest in peace!..And may all your friends and loved ones who are still alive today,find hope in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ..John 3:16,Mark 16:16,Acts 2:38-39...Peace!
July 14, 2007
In my office hangs a photo of my father H.Dan Heyn with Mrs. Johnson in front of the her hometown Karnack, Texas Post Office. The occasion was the building's dedication. My father was the landscape architect. The year was either 1966 or 1967. That afternoon my father joined Mrs. Johnson and a group of distinguished guests for lunch and she asked that he sit by her. She recognized and appreciated my father's pioneering work in introducing/promoting indigenious plants in his designs. It was an honor to answer her questions and share notes and knowledge with her. Later, an invitation to the White House retirement dinner for Earl Warren arrived at our home. My parents, Depression era frugal people unwillingly to borrow the money for flight and hotel, did not attend, much to the disappointment of their children. But we will never forget our now deceased father's story of that day in Karnack with the truly great Southern Lady Bird Johnson sharing their love for the flora of their beloved Texas. I feel surely he stands with thousands of her admirers in a field of bluebonnets welcoming her. Thank you God for Lady Bird.
July 14, 2007
Sore up to the heaven Dear Lady Bird, Fly with the angles love, and look down at the beauty from the Heavens above. As the wildflowers grow, everyone will know that they were planted with your Love.
Thank you for your beauty, and the beauty of our Country.
May God Bless you, and your Lovely
Family.

If not for Lady Bird, there would be a lot less wildflowers to enjoy around Texas in the spring.

I was the "Ladies for Lyndon" chairman for Gonzales County when he ran for president and we were all invited to the ranch for a barbecue. The president had to cancel but Lady Bird greeted us all like life-long friends.

I also met her at the opening of the wildflower center years later and she was still the same gracious
lady.
July 14, 2007
My condolences to each of you in your family and May God Bless you each through your time of need.
We will be praying for each of you
July 14, 2007
Your work with wildflowers has brightened our lives and has inspired me in my own work. You are the finest of Texas. May you watch over us and our country.
July 14, 2007
My husband wiped away tears when I told him of Lady Bird's passing. My brother called to let me know and said he cried, too. I cried as if going through my own mother's passing again. How could we all have loved her so much? She was an icon, a real Texas mother figure, always there for us to try to emulate. She was someone we grew up with, who shared her life experiences with us right out there in the bright spotlight, and did it with an amazing grace. I doubt her kind will ever come again. God bless Lady Bird Johnson and God bless Texas for having nurtured and influenced her.
July 14, 2007
to the Johnson Family I respect all the wonderful things yor Mother and father did. They were exceptional people. When I visit Austin Texas, I think about your Mother. When i see wild flowers along the road i see how awesome she was. Go in peace to God Lady Bird and live in eternal beauty!
July 14, 2007
She was one of Texas' greatest. She will always be in the hearts of everyone that lived in the 50's and 60's. Texas Grand First Lady.She will be missed by all.

July 14, 2007
I will always remember my visit to the Ranch with other Wildflower center volunteers about 3 years ago.I sat with Ladybird and commented that i was a retired U.S. army Veterinarian.She immediately told me about the Johnson family dog during the White House years.I will miss her warm smile at the Friends of LBJ functions and at the many times our paths crossed at restaurants here in Austin.My sincere sympathy to the family on their loss.
July 14, 2007
Ma'am,
Thank you for who you were and for all that you did, not only in Texas, certainly, but for the country as a whole.
You exhibited throughout your life a style which was your own. Classiness and compassion.
You will never be forgotten, and may God secure for you the best of accomodations.
July 14, 2007
Growing up in Texas, the words "wildflower" and "Lady Bird Johnson" were closely associated. May she rest in peace after a long life dedicated to the service of others, and loving the environemnt and her family.
July 14, 2007
Lady Bird, you will be missed. You were a smart and sassy woman.
God Bless You

A Fond Farewell
Tis a fond farewell that I bid as I pass the torch onto you. Twas not so long ago that I was young just like you. I had my dreams for the future and I knew what I wanted to do.
Some of my dreams I have accomplished, the others I pass onto you. Never give up hope, for tomorrow will be better for you. Always take the time to listen to what people have to say.
This is their way of passing their wisdom onto you. Never look back always look forward, you have your future in front of you. Always do your best, so that you have no regrets.
These are just some of the things that I pass on to you. I hope that I have done my best, but that I leave up to you. This is all that I have to say as I bid a Fond Farewell.

July 14, 2007
I never met you, but thanks for all you helped your husband do for the civil rights movement of the 60's. You are the reason that I received a great education during the 60's. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart.
July 14, 2007
The year was 1965 and I moved to Washington to work for our dear Lady Bird at The White House. You have left your imprint on the landscape of America. I helped you plant trees on several occassions and I never dreamed that all those trips to plant would spread across America. My time working for the family was special and the memories will last forever.

Each time I see a wildflower on the side of the road I remember the evening at the Ranch when Mrs. Johnson and Helen Hayes announced that we would have a National Wildflower Center and look where your dream has taken us all in America.

May you rest in peace.

Bill Davis
July 14, 2007
Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Lady Bird Johnson , I am very appreciative of her untiring work in the arena of civil rights and beautification. Lady Bird is a vital part of my organization's history, Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. She will be missed as we, Capital City Chapter TLOD, celebrate our 40th Anniversary in September.
July 14, 2007
You were a bright and shining star in the time when fear, confusion and dreariness ravaged our land. As a child growing up, I loved you and respected you - and still do. Go to God with peace and love, and be sure to hug your husband for me!

July 14, 2007
For the rest of my life, when I visit Austin and see the explosion of wildflowers as they canvas the central Texas landscape, I will think of you. Soar onward, Lady Bird.
July 14, 2007
To the Johnson family: We appreciate the legacy your parents left behind! We've always loved flowers and the wildflowers of Texas are special favorites; we're so grateful to Mrs. Lady Bird for her work to preserve more of our state's bounty!
July 14, 2007
I salute your wonderful mother....and send our thoughts and prayers to you all.
When I last visited the Wildflower Center a docent quoted Lady Bird as having said "A weed is just an opinion." I love that and have used that thought since then.
Bless you.
July 14, 2007
She was a wonderful woman. One of the last women who were real role models. Her style, her grace and her committment to environmental causes will always be remembered. Thank you Mrs. Johnson. May you rest in peace.

I
once had the privilege of meeting Mrs. Johnson, and found her to be
absolutely charming. Her entire attention was focused on everyone
around her. What a sweet person to have visited the world and made it a better place.

July 14, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson left so many wonderful legacies to Texas residents. Her work to beautify the state and the country will benefit generations to come. She was a wonderful and humble person.
July 14, 2007
You taught us that nature's beauty was important - and "easy", if we just tried a bit. We also learned that it was good for business.

Your efforts are a part of why many of us have become "activists" for beauty & nature.

Thank you, so much.
July 14, 2007
Thank you for making our state of Texas so beautiful. You will always be remembered espically when I see all the flowers in bloom.

I had totally forgotten her love of wild flowers. And I have just discovered the beauty of them now that I'm retired and can take long walks in the park. Thank you Lady
Bird for that and for being a gracious, true Southern lady.

SHE WAS A MUCH ADMIRED LADY.

She walked among the beauty of the wildflowers that she so loved. She spoke with the softest voice and that beautiful Texas accent. The most tranquil sound to your ears, but alerted you to pay attention. As a teenage girl growing up in Arlington and attending TCU, she was one of the reasons I was and am so proud of my home state of Texas. My family's roots began in East Texas also. My wonderful Grandmother that helped raise me chose to "nickname" my daughter, Shay, "Shaybird". We all love that name. My Grandmother who is in heaven enjoying the love and beauty she so deserved, loved and admired Lady Bird so much. My daughter, Shay, who now teaches Geography in the Plano ISD, adores Lady Bird's contributions to this country. Bird loved her Lyndon as he loved her. I know she was loved by her family and ours.

Our love and prayers are with you today. I can just see all the wildflowers growing in fields and fields of every hue possible in Heaven. Won't it be fun to see that when we get there?

Thank you to her family for sharing her with us. God is watching out for you in your grief. Our hearts and love are with you also. I hope you feel that love strongly.

Lady Bird Johnson is the epitome of a true Texas woman: strong, graceful, hard-working,sprited and stands by her beliefs and loves family,God and country. She also "stood by her man" and LBJ can at least be credited with knowing a great thing when he proposed marriage one day after meeting her. Each time I look at our wildflowers, I remember her legacy.
July 14, 2007
Heaven has a new angel.May our precious Lady Bird rest in peace & may her family find comfort in the Lord.

What a wonderful person she was, I remember her coming to New Orleans for several days and watching her move around the French Quarter with her group of about 14 people, she was so graceful, god love you and your family. Richard T Carr Pensacola, Florida

"She is the last of the true Southern Ladies." That statement was always out of the mouth my father when anything came up about Lady Bird Johnson. He was a Secret Service Agent assigned to Lady Bird Johnson while I was growing up. I don't recall a time when anything but the sweetest words were uttered from his mouth about this wonderful woman. When my dad was on detail with Lady Bird he had stated on several occassions that she felt better when her "boys" were around. I'm sure she is glad to know that they are right by her side again. Now just like then they would never have wanted to be anywhere else. They loved her and we loved her. My prayers and thoughts are with her family in this time of sorrow.
July 14, 2007
To the family,
Our prayers are with the family. Mrs. Johnson's legacy will live on. Each time we pass the beautiful BlueBonnets we will always remember her and the love that she had for her flowers. May God comfort the family in the loss of such a great lady. She will truly be missed.
July 14, 2007
THe gift of Lady Bird Johnson keeps on giving to all provileged to travel America's highways. What a joy it is just to take in the beauty.
July 14, 2007
May the imediate family be comforted at this time. LBJ was a great first lady.
July 14, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
July 14, 2007
Our Dear Lady Bird - You have made our world so beautiful with your lovely wildflowers and your gentle loving care. May you look down from Heaven Above and see the beautiful sights knowing you created them. You will be greatly missed and loved by many. God Bless.

An excellent wife and mother, and lover of the natural beauty of our country has left us. God bless her, and thank you God for letting us share our lives.
July 14, 2007
Texas has lost its true yellow rose with the passing of Lady Bird. Her love of wildflowers and of Texas will forever live each year as the flowers bloom. She was a truly remarkable lady and one who left her footprints throughout our great country because of her love of beauty, of nature, but most of all her love of people. Heaven's garden is brighter and more beautiful today as the yellow rose of Texas has blossomed to her fullest beauty with her heavenly Father. May God bless her family, and May God bless Texas as He blessed us with Lady Bird Johnson!
July 14, 2007
I was born in Austin in 1944 (Lynda Bird & I are the same age & took dance lessons together) where I have enjoyed KLBJ radio, & KTBC TV almost all my life. I have enjoyed Town Lake for decades, and EVERYDAY I enjoy our wildflowers!! I cannot say enough about my admiration for Lady Bird!! She has enriched the lives of ALL TEXANS, but those of us in Austin have been especially lucky! God bless Lady Bird and the entire extended Johnson family.
July 14, 2007
Grace, class & style; Mrs. Johnson had it all. It's been missing from the white house for close to 30 years. May she rest in peace.

Each spring I marvel at the wildflowers on the roadsides of our great state of Texas, especially our spectacular bluebonnets, and smile, and blow a kiss to Lady Bird, and say thank you to such a gracious, sweet woman. You will never be forgotten, and may your family's sorrow be short. Godspeed.
July 13, 2007
To Luci & Lynda and the entire Johnson family. I am a docent at the LBJ Library and have had the honor of talking to your Mother over the last five years. She was a special Lady and my heart goes out to you all at this sad time. Love, Darin

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

I am sorry at the passing of Lady Bird. My sympathies with the whole family. She was deserving of all the respect she has, there are not many left like her, sad to say. I look forward to visiting Texas again. Thank You Lady Bird!!!!

July 13, 2007
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
July 13, 2007
Such a gracious First Lady--she never looked for attention, but gave to our country, from the heart.
Your unselfishness graced our Nation. We still today enjoy the beauty of our highways because of your many beautification projects. May God Bless your sweet soul. You will be missed.
July 13, 2007
As a little girl (with both grandparents and parents from Texas; my grandfather flew on the plane from Dallas to LA with the Texas delegation on their way to the 1960 Democratic Convention) I always felt comforted when I heard the then VP Johnson and his lovely missus speak in their oh so familiar Texas accents.
When they became President, my mother died soon after. I came to
treasure Mrs. Johnson's intervews on TV about wildflowers, the Texas
bluebonnets; her very ladylike ways of speech, delivery and stance. She sounded like my mama so much...
Mrs. Johnson was probably the last we shall see of the line of
traditional Southern ladies; a grand and flawed tradition of
hospitality, humble brilliance, service to husband, menfolk,family and kin, quiet beauty, grace, grit, steel inner strength and serenity in
the face of implacable hatred and unrelenting social opposition.
She was the end of a noble American generaton and we are poorer for it.
I always felt close to Mrs. Johnson; by her voice, I felt I knew her well. Now she is with her beloved Lyndon; I hope they are having a REAL southern barbecue in heaven.
Thank you Lynda and Luci for sharing your beautiful and marvelous
mother with us all, especially with me, a Yankeefied (but true Texan)
motherless little girl.
Bless you all.
July 13, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird...Thank You for making our Great State so beautiful, and alive with color with all the wild flowers. I have sent your wild flowers in a can to friends every where sharing your love of flowers.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace!
July 13, 2007
My sincerest heartfelt sympathy to all of Mrs. Johnson's family and friends. She was a great First Lady
and she will be greatly missed.
July 13, 2007
A great lady, with style, grace, charm and dignity. Your strength sustained a country during a terrible time of grief. God has embraced you.
July 13, 2007
What an inspiration. No one would have criticized her had she retired and enjoyed a well-earned leisure in the years after being our First Lady. Instead she constantly amazed us with her insight, ingenuity, and love of this great state. What a lady--what a legacy.
July 13, 2007
I will always cherish my visit to the LBJ Ranch and meeting Lady Bird Johnson. To Miss Nicole and Ms. Luci - I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
July 13, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
July 13, 2007
Thanks to Lady Bird our roads all over the Country are beautiful in the spring of the year with all the wildflowers. Was on a field trip to the Johnson Ranch with my daughter in the spring years ago when we lived in Texas. It brought home to me how fortunate we are in this Country to have had a First Lady like Lady Bird who cared about making the Country a more beautiful place to live. My family's hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Lady Bird -- this gracious lady will always be remembered by all Americans. God Bless!
July 13, 2007
To the family of former first lady, Lady Bird Johnson:
My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you. Your mother leaves
a wonderful legacy of wisdom, strength when our country needed it most, and beauty. It is a legacy that will live on for generations.
July 13, 2007
lady bird johnson will surely be missed by all who knew her, and also those who only knew of her.
the family has my sincere sympathy in this trying time.
July 13, 2007
I will always remember and continue to remember you as i drive along the texas roads and see the beautiful bluebonnets and wildflowers. My prayers are with all the family. Lady Bird will always be in our hearts, she is an inspiration to us all.
July 13, 2007
To the family and friends of Lady Bird Johnson, we extend our sympathy for your loss. We have read so many of the wonderful entries left by so many who admired your mother. Every first lady has a particular dream she would like to see happen during her time as First Lady. Of all the first ladies, your mother's dream to beautify our nation with God's palette of wildflowers each year was achieved. Where others' dreams have been forgotten, hers will be seen every new spring with the blooming of the wildflowers along our Texas highways. Mere words cannot express how very thankful we are to this great Texas lady for what she did for all of us by bringing beauty to our state and nation. Thank you Lady Bird, and God bless you and your family.
July 13, 2007
I just adored Lady Bird. I was only in my twenties when she became our first lady and I credit her for my interest in gardening. I have so many beautiful flowers because of her. May she rest in peace along side her beloved Lyndon.
July 13, 2007
I have so much respect for Lady Bird- she truly loved the great state of Texas. May she always be remembered.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird was an inspiration to me and will be remembered for the beautiful wildflowers. In her memory I have created a wildflower garden in my yard.
July 13, 2007
I feel like my Grandmother just died. Lady Bird has always been my idol, and growing up in Texas, she was my mentor. I was visiting my mother in Houston from Colorado, and I paid $50 and traveled from Houston to Texas to meet her. I was so excited, however, she had fallen ill and didn't make the event. I was crushed. I never got to meet her, and now that I live in Colorado, my heart aches that I cannot be in the Texas Hill Country on Sunday for her burial. I am very very sad. When I returned to Texas after a long time of being away, the two main things I wanted to do was to visit her Wildflower Center and to go to the Pedernales River to see my favorite river, her beautiful ranch and of course all of the gorgeous April Bluebonnets and wildflowers! She will remain a part of me as long as I live. I only wish I could have met her before she passed on to thank her for everything she did for Texas.
July 13, 2007
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird was indeed a very great woman of our times. I remember back in 1992, while on a tour of the LBJ Ranch, the tour guide told us that we could not get off the tram to visit the ranch house because Mrs. Johnson was there, but when we went by, Lady Bird was outside and waved for the tram to stop. She greeted all of us with a very warm welcome, and thanked us all for coming to visit. She in my opinion, was a great woman who cared about people. As LBJ once stated "We have suffered a loss that cannot be weighed". May you rest in peace, as you memories will live forever.
July 13, 2007
My life is richer because she lived and I am proud to call myself a Texan because she helped make Texas a better place to live.Mrs Johnson was a loyal friend and loving mentor to the Nation.I'll never forget Lady Bird.
July 13, 2007
I am privileged to work right across Town Lake and the hike and bike trail. Each time I look out of my window, I will always remember that it was this wonderful lady that made this possible! Rest in Peace, Lady Bird.
July 13, 2007
Mrs Johnson,

You were a guiding light during a difficult time in our history. You were also a very loving wife, mother and great First Lady. I am sure that the wildflowers in heaven will look even more beautiful starting the day you entered. God Bless and Thank You.
July 13, 2007
I wanted to be among the Americans who send their deepest sympathy to the Johnson Family. I was so impressed as a child to see how Mrs. Johnson made a difference to our highways and byways. I think of her each time I come across flowers growing on the side of the road.
She did make America the Beautiful even more beautiful with her program.
She has had a long blessed life and now I pray she is rewarded in eternity. May her family find comfort in their memories.
July 13, 2007
Mrs Johnson - I am so thankful I came to a point in my life that I truly could appreciate you and the late President. What Grace, what Character. I feel like a heavy hand has been placed on my heat at the passing of a truly Great Lady -We are all blessed for your being here and will continue to be blessed each year as the flowers of Spring burst forth - Thank you so much for having touched my life.
July 13, 2007
To Lynda Bird, Lucie Baines,(daughers of the Lovely Lady Bird and to the rest of her family. My sincerest condolences extended to all her family and friends. I remember when your father was traveling the state in a helicopter while running for state office and he came to our town. He was as tall as my dad and my family listened intentley as he spread his policies. Since your parents and my parents had so much in common and their daughters were the age of us; we just felt we knew them well. Lady Bird Johnson as well as President Lyndon Baines Johnson were am inspiration to all who knew them. I am greatful to Lady Bird for her love of wild flowers but also for her riddence of old car salvage/junk yards. To Texas that was a blessing to the entire state.
Lady Bird Johnson was an untiring soldier for the state of Texas and her reward will in Heaven where she will bestowed with jewels in her crown. God bless the Johnson family, and God Bless America!
July 13, 2007
Our family will always remember you as the wonderful person that made our trips through this wonderful state of Texas so beautiful. Thank you so very much for you thoughtfulness. My young daughters will know all about you and I will encourage them to teach their children the same. Peace be with you and your family.
July 13, 2007
I can remember Lady Bird as such a warm and caring person who loved her family. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother and family member. I also lost my mother this year and know your grief. Remember the good times with your Mother and she will be with you always.
July 13, 2007
I had the honor of playing in our Flagstaff (Arizona) high school band when Mrs. Johnson came to Page, AZ to dedicate the Glen Canyon Dam in 1967. I will remember that day always and can still her her lovely voice. She was an exceptional lady! May her family find peace at this difficult time.
July 13, 2007
I had the privilege of visiting the LBJ Library and Museum, the Johnson family ranch and LBJ's childhood home this past April. It was a wonderful experience that will be with me always. It was clear that both President and Mrs. Johnson cared for and did a lot for this country. I send my sincere condolences to the family for their loss. Mrs. Johnson will be greatly missed.
July 13, 2007

Your Mother was a wonderful First Lady to our country. As a child I learned from her the importance of not littering our roadways and trying to leave things nicer than they were when I arrived. God Bless and take care.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird ~ my prayers are with your remaining family members. Your death forced me to reflect back at other great Austin Pioneers suchas: Ada LeBlance Simond & Mayor Ann Richards and I am honored to have met you all. God Bless your pleasant memories.

Through your efforts, you made this country beautiful. Thank you for your gentility and your grace. When I ponder your example, I am so proud to be an American.
July 13, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
July 13, 2007
So sad to hear of her passing. In addition to her environmental advocacy, I have been most inspired by knowing that it was she who largely spurred LBJ to introduce his civil rights and Great Society legislation. An admirable person all around.
July 13, 2007
Mrs. Johnson understood the concepts that God's grace is poured out to ALL of creation and that each us is bound together by that grace. May she rest in peace.
July 13, 2007
The world is a better place for her having passed through.

You have my condolences.
July 13, 2007
God bless her family. She was a wonderful and very unique woman.
July 13, 2007
I was very lucky to work for Mrs. Johnson and her ongoing mission to help keep America beautiful. What a privilege it was to have known her. She will be missed, but never forgotten.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson will be remem-
bered for her work to beautify Tx.
and America.,a great job she did.She will be greatly missed but
fondly remembered.
July 13, 2007
As a native Texan who also graduated with two degrees from UT-Austin, I am saddened by the death of Mrs. Johnson. I heard her speak more than once when I lived in Austin many years ago and always was impressed by her intelligence and candor. My deepest sympathies to her family.
July 13, 2007
What a gracious lady. May God receive you into His House. God Bless you, Mrs. Johnson and those who mourn your passing.
July 13, 2007
I will never forget driving down the highways of Texas when I was a kid looking at all the Bluebonnets and other flowers. Lady Bird will be truly missed in our great state!
July 13, 2007
In our sleep, pain which cannot forget, drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will comes wisdom through the awful grace of god.
July 13, 2007
Deepest Sympathy for a wonderful lady and true partner of a distinguished President.
July 13, 2007
My deepest sympathy to a great lady and distinguished President's wife. What a wonderful legacy you have left for your family, friends and all who admired and loved you.
July 13, 2007
I think Lady Bird was a great Lady,and will always be The First Lady Of Texas and all we have to do is look at all the flowers to see her forever.
July 13, 2007
I grew up in Austin during the 60's, 70's and 80's and remember Mrs. Johnson during that time in history, and the wonderful legacy that Lady Bird built with the Wildflower Center. I am a horticulturist who cannot look at a wildflower in Texas without thinking of the lady who wanted to "plant a tree, a shrub, or a bush."

Mrs. Johnson, you will be missed but your legacy will live on. God Bless you, your family and the great state of Texas.
July 13, 2007
To Linda and Luci:How Blessed to have had parents such as yours.In
the days to come, may God continue
to Bless and keep you ever strong,
and never forget the Wildflowers.
July 13, 2007
When I see our beautiful Texas wildflowers I will always remember and be thankful for all that Ladybird did for the beautification of Texas.
July 13, 2007
During the summer of 1964, the Presidential family would often shop in downtown Austin, Texas. My Mother, who worked at Scarbroughs Dept. Store at 6th & Congress, would often call me to take the bus, in hopes of me to getting a glimpse of Mrs. Johnson, Lynda and Lucy. It was a great thrill for a young teenager to have met the Presidential family and see them conversing with sales personnel in our hometown atmosphere. During those turbulent times, she continued to make all of us feel like neighbors and friends. Her contributions to our State of Texas and our nation will always be remembered. Thank you, Mrs. Johnson.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson, Thanks for being
a real Lady, and leaving such a Legacy for all Americans to strive
for. My former Boss, Mack H.Hannah
and Pres. Johnson were very good
and close friends. Peace My Dear
Lady.
July 13, 2007
Thank you for sharing Ladybird with us. To be separate from the body is to be present with God.
July 13, 2007
Good bye and God Speed to a national treasure. You were a wonderful person and it is time for you to be rewarded in heaven. You were a great First Lady. You will always be First Lady in my mind.
July 13, 2007
She enhanced our lives with her grace. So long as we live when the spring brings the wild flowers we will think of her. My husband always laughed as we drove the wild flower trails. I never failed to say "Thank you God and Thank you Lady Bird." What a wonderful legacy she left not just for her family but for all of us.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson, whose warmth, charm and dedication to her husband and her nation will never be forgotten, holds a unique place in the hearts of all of us. Truly, to know her was to love her.
July 13, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was truly a "Steel Magnolia". What an example to all women! I'm very proud that her roots run deep in this good East Texas soil. My sincere sympathy to the family.
July 13, 2007
I composed the following poem for this wonderful lady:


LADY BIRD

The world has lost another treasure,
Each Texan cries with pride today;
A special lady with a special heart,
Our beloved Lady Bird has flown away….

As some people make a difference,
Others simply follow the crowd;
This one took grief with graciousness,
She made all of U.S. so proud….

Her place in history is secure no doubt,
Turbulent times she handled well;
Being a President’s wife can’t be easy,
Being First Lady can’t always be swell….

History changed its course in Dallas,
Third week of November, 1963;
Her life thrust into the world’s spotlight,
That special heart we all could see….

From blue-bonnets to honeysuckle vines,
Her fight was for natural beauty;
Perhaps a reflection of her inner-soul,
This was her true love and call-to-duty….

Yes, this one made a big difference,
A beacon of grace for a beautiful world;
I hope that all of U.S. take time to remember,
Our First Lady, our beloved Lady Bird….

Goodbye, Lady Bird,
I will think of you whenever I see the beautiful flowers along our highways and in the children that have been helped through Head Start. Texas will miss you, but never forget you.
July 13, 2007
I am sory to here about Lady Bird Johnson passing.
July 13, 2007
Mrs. Johnson will be remembered for all times. Her legacy as a caretaker of and advocate for God's wonderful world will continue through the lives of the children she touched. In Heaven, she must even now be contemplating where to plant the bluebonnets! Thank you, Mrs. Johnson for enhancing our lives with your style and grace.
July 13, 2007
What a wonderful legacy this woman leaves us. She set a fine example for how to leave the world a better place. Peace be with you.
July 13, 2007
OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS.

I MET LADY BIRD AT THE RANCH IN THE LATE 60'S WHEN I WAS WITH A SMALL OF PEOPLE FROM WASKOM. PRESIDENT JOHNSON WAS THERE ALSO. I STILL HAVE A PICTURE OF ME WITH HER.

iwould like to send my condolences to the johnson family. she wa a great texas lady and she will be missed
July 13, 2007
There is a special place in my heart for Lady Bird Johnson. When I see the bluebonnets and wildflowers, I always attribute this to Mrs. Johnson for her highway beautification program. I love to visit the Wildflower Center and through Ladybird's inspiration it has prompted many Texans to plant wildflower seeds on our own property. My utmost love and respect for this wonderful Texan and my thoughts and prayers to the family for the loss of this extraordinary American. There will be a hole in my Texan heart as I take my place in line for the Funeral procession route on Sunday.
July 13, 2007
Wonderful gracious are two words that come to mind when I think about meeting Lady Bird one day at the ranch. The world has lost a great lady and patriot.
July 13, 2007
To the last yellow rose of Texas, a great woman, role model, champion, and mother. We love you Lady Bird!

Not everyone is lucky enough to be born a Texan. Everyone is lucky Mrs. Johnson was. Because of her our whole nation is far better and more beautiful. Thank you for everything you did for us Mrs. Johnson.
July 13, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with the family of this Gracious Lady. Thank you Lady Bird for making our state a little more beautiful.
July 13, 2007
Our family is greatful for former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson. She was a true lady in every sense and used her position to impact millions of others because of her love for GOD's creation.
July 13, 2007
I did report after report on President LBJ & Lady Bird Johnson all through high school. They both just really intrigued me and were down home Texans. Lady Bird will always be remembered by me everytime I see wildflowers along side the highways. I'm 41 yrs. old now and still the Johnsons and there family intrigue me still today. Lady Bird will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. My condolences and deepest sympathy go out to the entire Johnson family. God picks the prettiest flowers and in my eyes he got the best one of all.
July 13, 2007
As a young girl I attended St. Barnabas Episcopal church in Fredericksburg where I sometimes encountered the Johnson family at Sunday services. Lady Bird’s charm and gracious manner were always impressive as she greeted fellow church goers after the services. I appreciated her kind words to me each time we met and her wonderful qualities were always an inspiration. Her lovely spirit will be missed.
July 13, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
July 13, 2007
I was very fortunate to know Mrs. Johnson, "Bird". She truly was a very kind lady and a very loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. There will never be another like her. God bless the family and thank you all for sharing your bird with us.
July 13, 2007
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Lady Bird Johnson. My husband Cleo and I had visited the LBJ Library in Austin for the first time in 2006 and I remember thinking how beautiful and well put-together it was - especially the area of the First Lady's office and rooms. She left a great legacy of environment and flower appreciation and preservation. So to Lady Bird, I say - THANK YOU.
July 13, 2007
May a Great Lady Rest in Peace.
July 13, 2007
My grandfather helped build some of the buildings on the beautiful LBJ Ranch many, many, many years ago. He often talked about what a kind and gentle but strong person that Lady Bird Johnson was. In particular, he told us about Lady Bird bringing freshly baked biscuits out to the workers many mornings. He had a lot of respect for Lady Bird, as do I. She proved herself to be a woman of compassion, intelligence, great strength, great dignity, and great foresight. My deepest condolences to the family & friends of this lovely lady.
Aloha ke Akua.
July 13, 2007
My deepest sympathy on your loss. I have the fondest memories of Lady Bird Johnson. I remember first seeing the beautiful flowers in the parks of Washington, D.C. during the 1960's. She will be remembered as one of the greatest of First Ladies.

PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU

Mrs Johnson's grace was apparent when President Kennedy was shot in Dallas in 1963. We could not have imagined what that fateful day would turn out to be; but as we waved to everyone from the flightline at Carswell AFB that noon, it soon became apparent we would have a new President. We were glued to the TV for the next few days and we saw a wife and mother who kept everyone grounded despite the pressures she was feeling. This "Lady Bird" became one of the greatest First Lady's of all times. When we take trips, we are truly in awe of the legacy she has left our country with all the beautiful wildflowers blooming. Our deepest sympathy to all the family. May she rest in peace.
July 13, 2007
The United States and the citizens of the great State of Texas has lost a true friend. Mrs. Johnson served this country and this state with distinction and class and she will be sorely missed.

To the Johnson family, we send our deepest condolences for your loss, but the thought that LBJ and LBJ are together once more for eternity, should be most comforting.

Kindest Regards.
July 13, 2007
I think of Mrs. Johnson everytime I see flowers along the highways. She really did make the world a more beautiful place. She will be missed by many.

July 13, 2007
We continue to mourn the loss of a Great First Lady. Lady Bird shown us that life can be great and beautiful. She lead the way for so many women all over the world, young and old.

We loved First Lady Bird Johnson, but GOD Loved her the best. She is just taking a Rest in the Arms of Jesus Christ.
July 13, 2007
We so loved the wild flowers Lady Bird had planted along the hi-ways in Texas, when we moved to Austin in 1979 we were pleasantly surprised by all the color on the road side we'll never forget what a wonderful person she was.
July 13, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
July 13, 2007
She represented both Texas and the US with grace and dignity. She was truly an inspiration.

I
had been meaning to send a card to Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson, but had not
gotten around to it in recent weeks.
I always admired her. She was a smart, elegant, beautiful lady with
high standards, strength, ethics.. She upheld these standards in an age
where they seem to be disappearing in our public figures.

I send my condolances to the entire family. Needless to say, she was a very special person.

I know her great soul has gone on to the loving presence of God..

from a US citizen who loved having her as the FIrst Lady of our country.

Every time I see wild flowers in the median of a highway, I think loving of you.

She was the epitome of a Southern Lady. She will be remembered for generations by the beauty she brought to the state of Texas.

We know that the road to Heaven is paved with Bluebonnets.
July 13, 2007
You were the most gracious hostess when I visited you in the White House. I will remember your beauty all my life.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson was one of my most admired people in my life. I was proud of her during her years in the white house that she was from Texas, my native state. She had such grace,dignity and strength. She gave respect and kindness to people of all races.The world is more beautiful today because of her. Her daughters Luci, and Linda are to be commended for seeing that her work is carried on. May she rest in peace.
July 13, 2007
My deepest sympathies to the family of Lady Bird Johnson. She represented what is best about Texan women, and was a great asset to our nation. God bless her and welcome her home to be with her husband forever.
July 13, 2007
A truly remarkable lady that will be missed. Thoughts and Prayers for the family
July 13, 2007
I have always been a Republican and Conservative, but as a Texan, I have always considered Lady Bird Johnson to be First Lady of Texas and I will miss her.
July 13, 2007
As a native Texan and now a new resident to the Austin area, thank you Lady Bird for your devotion to this great state and for your love of all the beautiful wildflowers and Town Lake. You have meant so much to so many people. Rest in Peace.
July 13, 2007
Everytime I drive by the beautiful Texas Bluebonnets on the side of the road I will think of all you have done for the great State of Texas. God be with your family in this time of grief.
July 13, 2007
It is my hope that Texas will forever be associated with two things other than big money and big cities: Lady Bird Johnson and her Bluebonnets.

Lady Bird now joins the legions of other Texas Steel Magnolias who have left us, namely: Ann Richards, Nellie Connally, and Molly Ivins.

Lady Bird represented the last of a dying breed of exquisite grace, gentility and compassion, all the while possessing a quite force and strength that no one dared question or stand in her way.

I would imagine that at the moment God has Lady Bird at his side, next to Molly Ivins. What a glorious exchange that must be going on!
July 13, 2007
Until I moved to Texas in 1999, I never realized what beauty was until I saw the wildflowers Lady Bird Johnson loved so much.. The beauty shines like the woman herself did.
July 13, 2007
You were a shining example of strength and endurance for "all" women. God Bless you and your family. ATH
July 13, 2007
My deepest sympathy goes to all the family members and the many friends and admirers of Mrs.Johnson. I am proud to be a member of the Wildflower Center. I love taking visitors there to enjoy it with me. Thank you Mrs. Johnson for leaving it as a legacy of beauty and grace for the generations to come. May God bless you and yours.
July 13, 2007
As a native Texan, Dallas, I loved and was so proud of our Lady Bird. And took many trips to the Ranch, enjoying the beauty of it all and showing it off to out of staters. She did so much for our state in such positive ways. God bless her and her loved ones.
July 13, 2007
My family and I were so sorry to hear of Mrs. Johnson's passing. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family. She and President Johnson did so much to truly make the lives of Texans and Americans better in so many ways. I will always think of her foundly as I do, Mrs. Connally, and Mrs. Richards, our great Texas ladies.
July 13, 2007
I was a admiring supporter of LBJ and his policies and achievements, and I know full well that Lady Bird was his strength and inspiration. Though I never met her she was always so gracious and truly loved Texas and her country and left a legacy of the beauty of nature that reflected the beauty of her soul.
July 13, 2007
How can you describe Lady Bird Johnson – Charming, magnanimous, gracious. She was the essence of what Texas is all about and someone I have always admired. They say that “behind every great man there is an even greater woman” – she stood, not behind her husband but beside him. And you could always see the love and admiration she had for him and for her daughters – look at her face when she would be looking at them – it was so full of love. She was an innovator for the protecting and beautifying our environment. She “painted” our Texas highways with the beauty of the bluebonnets, paintbrushes and other wildflowers we see each spring - awe inspiring. God speed Mrs. Johnson, join your loving husband and live happily ever after.
July 13, 2007
As a little girl, I always heard about this great woman named "Ladybird Johnson'not knowing that she was given that nickname as a child, I thought it was unusual but it fit her perfectly! She was a great example for women everywhere, one that I as a grown woman now hope that I can live and grow to have the kind of aura that followed her entire life.May the family remember the great times and be forever blessed and greatful that they got a chance to know the "Legacy Ladybird Johnson. May God continue to Bless and Love the entire "Johnson Clan"
July 13, 2007
As a native Texan who moved to North Carolina 6 years ago- I wish I could be in Texas now to feel the pride and sympathy everyone in my home state must now be feeling. I called my daughter in Houston and when I mentioned Lady Bird's passing she immediately talked of her memory of being at the LBJ ranch and seeing the migration of thousands of Monarch butterflies and what a special memory that is for us. Lady Bird will always live on when Texans see wildflowers and the wonders of nature- what a wonderful legacy for a wonderful woman. She makes me proud to be a Texan.
July 13, 2007
Thank you, Lady Bird, for helping to maintain our beautiful Texas Wildflowers. You are truly a great lady and a great Texan.
July 13, 2007
I remember visiting Washington D.C for the first time in 1965, I was 14 years old. As we drove through Washington my mother would comment over and over about the beautiful flowers and Ladybird Johnson's mission to beautify America. Thank you Ladybird for your great contribution to America in so many ways but more importantly for helping us be more aware of our on responsibility to take the lead in keeping America beautiful. You were a class act! You will be missed!
July 13, 2007
To the Johnson family, you were blessed and our thoughts are with you. What a remarkable legacy Mrs. Johnson left all of us.We thank you Lady Bird for the beautiful wildflowers we see along Austin's highways..You were quite the lady.
Brian & Ruby Edward,
God Bless
July 13, 2007
I never had the chance to meet Mrs. Johnson but I feel like she is a relative and when I heard of her passing my heart sunk and I cried. She truly was an inspiration to us all and I'll miss her. She now flies with the Angels and is watching over her family. God Bless
July 13, 2007
Though I never had the pleasure of meeting Lady Bird, and was born long after her husband's administration, her presence and efforts never failed to move me. While away at school in 2001, my mother sat on the board of directors of the Austin chapter of "Reading is FUNdamental." Through the help of my Uncle's neighbor Mildred Steagall (a former Johnson aide now well into her late nineties), my Mother was able to arrange a fundraiser at the LBJ Library that was attended by Lynda Robb and Lady Bird Johnson. When I heard that Mrs. Johnson was going to be in attendance, I said to my Mom, "Tell her that I adore her!" Mom did just that, and according to her, Mrs. Johnson responded with a six inch grin and giggled "My goodness! How lovely to be adored by a nineteen year old at 88!"
July 13, 2007
Texans will be forever grateful to the Johnson family for their leadership. Lady Bird so reminded me of my own grandmother. We are flying our flag at half staff in remembrance of her and will pay our respects the way we did so many years ago when Lyndon was laid to rest. Godspeed Claudia.
*Native Texan*
July 13, 2007
All Texans grieve for the loss of this great lady. She was blessed with a long life, filled with many triumphs and a few tragedies. We were all touched by her, whether we knew it or not. For her family and friends, may the memories be many and sweet, and temper their great sorrow. God bless.
July 13, 2007
We would like to send our warmest, heartfelt condolences to the Johnson family. Lady Bird is an inspiration to Texas and the nation. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May the memories of her and her accomplishments bring you comfort. She was an amazing lady.
July 13, 2007
I am writing this in behalf of my 10 year old daughter, Peyton. In school she learned about Lady Bird Johnson and visited the LBJ Ranch. She cried when she heard the news. For what ever reason she was really fasinated by her life and acomplishments. As young as my daughter is she was influnced by Lady Birds example.
July 13, 2007
Our thanks to Ladybird for a life well lived. I shall treasure the times our paths crossed and remember her example in spirit, contributions and faith.
July 13, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Texas has lost a great "First Lady" in more ways than one. I pay tribute to her for hiding the ugly wrecking yards along our highways with beauty. Condolences to all her loved ones left behind.
July 13, 2007
My heartfelt condolences are sent to the family of one of the greatest ladies America has ever had the privilege of knowing....Lady Bird Johnson. Her honor, commitment to greatness, love of family and country, dedication and sincerity are unrivaled by anyone. In 1968, I had the utmost privilege of getting to see her and hear her speech at the dedication of the James K. Polk Memorial near Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotteans were so very proud to have such a GREAT "LADY" as a guest on that important day; I was in awe of her class and dignity and I was only twelve at the time. My prayer is that wonderful and heartfelt memories of her will sustain you, her family members, during this time of deepest loss. Her memory will live on in our hearts, minds and lives. Thank you.
July 13, 2007
Let us go now, you and I, and sit beneath a tree, or in a wild place, to remember the grace and beauty she gave our state, our nation, our planet. Her legacy knows no boundaries, no borders, no fences, only the vast plains of the wildness in all our senses. No races, no creeds, no colors, only the myriad shades of our most beautiful dreams, from the shores, to the hills, to the streams. She spoke a universal language of flowers, and made a garden where nothing would grow, something a heart as big as Texas would sow. It is up to us now, to make certain the lamp continues to glow.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird was the pillar of greatness and when she laughed you new The Lady Bird was near.She endured storm clouds as though it were a sunny day and my fondest and greatest memory throughout our friendship was the smile and demeanor which she always emulated.
"I will miss you" and especially your brillantly composed and artistic christmas cards.

My prayers are with you all.
July 13, 2007
My sympathy for the loss of a wonderful lady and role model for all women. May your memories and the legacy of your mother serve to comfort you at this sorrowful time.
July 13, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was an inspiration to women everywhere. My husband and I were very sad to hear of her passing. We were used to a world with her in it. Our prayers are with the family.
July 13, 2007
I remember that terrible time in 1962, and there Mr. Johnson was in such a herendous time in history, stoic, but gentle. The day Mr. Johnson took the oath of office in Dallas,Texas. Being a Texan I am sure that was such a heart renching time. How hard it must have been to go to the White House at sucha sad time. I remember her as gentle, supportive and a lady.
July 13, 2007
SUCH A GREAT LADY I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE ONE DAY MANY YEARS AGO. PLEASE ACCEPT MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY.
July 13, 2007
What a wonderous day! Lady Bird Johnson is now with her Lord and Savior. I celebrate the time she was here on earth.
July 13, 2007
Lady Bird made many wonderful contributions to this country.May she rest in peace.
July 13, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird. I consider you the First Lady of Texas. I think of you every time I see the wildflowers along our highways. I will always remember your commencement speech to my class, The Class of 1983 at The University of Texas. I knew I was in the presence of real Texas Royalty and listened to every word.

God Bless.
Can't wait to see what you do to beautify Heaven.
July 13, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird for showing the World what it is to being Catholic. God Bless You!

my best memory was my mother meeting Lady Bird at the Wildflower Center. My second best was her love for her family and grandchildren.
She had a great life and will be missed but leaves a great legacy.
July 13, 2007
She will be missed but remembered every time the wildflowers bloom.
July 13, 2007
I remember Mrs.Johnson when I worked at a jewelry store on Congress Ave. and she came in personally to select gifts and personally write the gift cards. No fuss, no special treatment. A truly gracious, remarkable and memorable lady. Later I was working in a department store at Highland Mall and Mrs. Johnson would come in with Luci to make purchases in the linen dept. I have never met a more genuine lady. Mrs. Johnson remembered me, and I will never forget how she asked me about things that we had discussed several years previously at my other employment, and about the people who used to work there.
I will cherish memories of her for the rest of my life.
July 13, 2007
What a classy, classic lady. I miss her, we shall all miss her. All praise to God for sharing her for a while!!
July 13, 2007
O Ms. Lady Bird how I drive down the highways and see beautiful blue bonnets in your name..May you be planting wildflowers all over God's creations in heaven..
July 13, 2007
During our Christmas vacation in 2000, my husband and I stayed the night in Stonewall before traveling to Big Bend. We were very fortunate to attend the lighting of the Christmas tree at the LBJ Ranch. Never having been before, we didn't think that the family would be there, but there they were, including Lady Bird. What an incredibly gracious family. What a great memory! Thank you Lady Bird for all that you've done for us.
July 13, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with the LBJ family. She will be greatly missed.
July 13, 2007
Join me as we bid a fond farewell to one of the great ladies of Texas and to one of our states most fervent ambassadors.

My heart felt sympathy to the Johnson family.
July 13, 2007
Throughout her long and eventful life Mrs Johnson remained a true lady of Texas - she never lost her grace, her gentle dignity or her love of life, her committment to her family family or her deep love for our native State. A lady far ahead of her time, her gift of flowers will forever be her monument.
With deepest sympathy
July 13, 2007
I rememnber her when I was a kid going to school in Kansas City Mo, now I live in Austin Texas and I would like to say that she will be miss.

July 13, 2007
Though I've lived in California for thirty years now, I was born in Dallas, grew up in Houston, and attended UT Austin. Lady Bird was always dear to my heart, and even as a child I felt she was like a second mother. She is one of the rare and beautiful things that make me still proud to call myself a Texan. She was the real thing...a true Texan...an original. A great lady. I will genuinely miss her...always.
July 13, 2007
Beautiful Lady Bird, you were admired and loved and now you will be missed.

Thank you Lady Bird, for all that you have done.
July 13, 2007
It was a special night in 1963/64 when I was priviledged to hear Lady Bird Johnson and Mignon Doran speak in Lexington, Kentucky.
I was 22 and what a wonderful example and inspiration these two classy ladies were to me.
They both had lives well lived and ones their families can be proud of.
July 13, 2007

July 13, 2007
My great-grandmother died that same day so I am going through the same thing... I am praying for her family.
Mrs. Johnson was a very nice woman. I remember meeting her at the ranch with my brother. He frizzled up her hair with a puppy dog balloon and she didn't mind one bit!
July 13, 2007
Our sincere thoughts and prayers to all the family of Lady Bird Johnson. God's blessings be with you during this time of sadness and grief.

Texas has been uplifted with color because of Lady Bird and her effort to beautify the roads and highways of Texas with wild Flowers along with her success in doing so. When I see the bluebonnets and indian paintbrushes along the highways my thoughts and gratitude goes to Lady Bird for this beauty I see. She has left a colorful memory for all of us. She was a beautiful lady with a kind heart.
July 13, 2007
MRS. JOHNSON DID SO MUCH TO MAKE THE HIGHWAYS SO BEAUTIFUL WITH FLOWERS. PEOPLE DID APPRECIATE HER EFFORTS, AND SHE WILL BE REMEMBERED.
July 13, 2007
As a teenager of the 60's during a difficult and trying time you brought grace and calm to our lives. Your presence was very definitely felt for those of us who were begining to make our way. Thank you and my best to your family at this sad time.
July 12, 2007
What a lovely lady. She will be missed.
July 12, 2007
Thank you Mrs. Ladybird Johnson. I don’t know if you were aware of the influence that you had on my life, but I would like you to know.

When I was a young girl, I saw you on television. You were First Lady during a very contentious time in America, and you handled it with grace. Jackie was so glamorous and tragic, but you were wise and comforting, and yes, no nonsense. Jackie was our tragic princess but you were our queen.

I don’t know if you were aware of this, but three generations of Texas women emulated you and looked up to you as a role model for what Texas women should be. My grandmother always held you up when I misbehaved, saying “What would Ladybird think?” My mother fought for our rights to have opportunities that our grandmothers didn’t. She would tell me that Ladybird was her example, because you were an astute business woman, and she held you up as an example of a strong woman.

As for myself, I always had you in the back of my mind, whether it was in business situations or social. I’ve always tried to handle myself with grace, but speaking out when things were wrong. I would think, “What would Ladybird do?”

You are gone now, but I promise you, I will continue to show the way for young Texas women. I will teach my nieces and nephews to value our environment, and I will teach my nieces to be strong, but gracious . . . like true Texas women.

Thank you Ladybird for being a role model for not only Texas women, but for women everywhere.

Love

Tina Norwood

Dear Johnson Family,

I know there is not much a stranger can say to ease the pain of the loss of your Mother & Grandmother. But, I would like you to know that to the every day person such as myself I really respected and admired what Mrs. "Lady Bird" Johnson did for not only the people of her belvoed "Texas" but for everyone that she came in contact to. She was/is a true American and a wonderful person. I can only hope that I have such an important and meaningful impact to my family and friends. God rest her beautiful soul. In her passing please don't feel sad but feel proud of what a person she was.... A ACCEPTIONALLY AWESOME PERSON!
July 12, 2007
"Lady" certainly defines her and from her, many of us in the United States learned graciousness. History can be nothing but kind to her as an exemplary First Lady.

May God grant peace to her family.
July 12, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
July 12, 2007
I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW YOU BUT I REALLY ADMIRED YOU LEFT AN IMPACT TO ME AND THE WORLD WITH YOUR THOUGHTFULNESS IN MAKING THE U.S. A MORE COLORFULL PLACE TO LIVE. THANK YOU.
July 12, 2007
A True Woman of Texas. A true daughter. How we miss our strong Texas women --Lady Bird, Ann, & Nellie! What a legacy!! What a beautiful legacy Lady Bird leaves. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.
July 12, 2007
What a great Texas and national lady Lady Bird was and what an incredible life. My condolences to her family. I had the privilege of meeting her and her then younger daughters)at a special public appearance in the then City Colliseum thanks to my mother's insistence that we "attend." It was a very special memory and treasured as she became our "First Lady" years later. And, she certainly did improve the appearances and appeal of many Texas highways which are still lovely today. We will miss this great lady!
July 12, 2007
She was always as "Pretty as a LadyBird". May God Bless Her memory.
July 12, 2007
To the Family of Lady Bird Johnson,
My family and I wish to extend our condolences during the loss of your Mother. May she rest in peace.
July 12, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with the LBJ family. She lived a wonderful life. We learned a lot about her when i was in school..not to mention the Day Care i used to work for, Stepping Stone School, spent a week on Lady Bird Johnson. Learning about her and doing activities over the summers
July 12, 2007
Thank you, Lady Bird for championing and advocating for the enjoyment and protection of our beautiful native flora.
July 12, 2007
We have appreciated your gentleness in dealing with people of power. Touring your gardens, finding peace in your designs, and appreciating the beauty of nature all give insight to your caring ways. We are blessed to have lived during your lifetime and wish your family the comfort of knowing you lived a full and blessed life.
July 12, 2007
We are blessed to have lived during your lifetime, visited your beautiful gardens and been touched by your devotion to beautifying the country. Peace to you and your family. Rest in the knowledge that you have lived a full and wonderful life and left the world a more beautiful place by being here.
July 12, 2007
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
July 12, 2007
I remember many years ago when Lady Bird was a part of a special celebration with the Camp Fire Girls of Marshall, Tx. She was a warm and caring person. I have visited the Wildflower Center and Johnson Ranch and related Johnson historic sites and with each visit have been pleased to associate Lady Bird with environmental and education endeavors benefiting not only Texas but all the US.
July 12, 2007
We will miss this great lady who gave much, and asked nothing in return for herself.
July 12, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
July 12, 2007
I am going to be in prayer for all the family, as I know how it is to lose a Mother. Mrs. Johnson will be remembered for her beautification projects, and for a lot of other things too.
July 12, 2007
A Wonderful Woman and Great Patriot. There is an empty spot in America's heart. We'll miss you.

Mrs Johnson was truly the last of great Texas women, and no one will replace her. Our thoughts go to the family.
July 12, 2007
I would like to express by condolences to the Johnson family. Mrs. Johnson was a credit to the nation and will be missed.
July 12, 2007
I’d like to extend my deepest of sympathies to the Johnson family. For the passing of there beautiful mother that they all loved so deeply, and was the center of there life. I had the privilege to work for Mrs. Johnson at the ranch, her home and, accompany them to Martha’s Vineyard. During the time I was Mrs. Johnson’s personal CNA aid. I got to see the special love each family member shared with her. As well as the love she had for all of them. Working with Mrs. Johnson was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
July 12, 2007
One of the Greatest Texans to ever live. If not for her junk yards would not have to have high solid fences to cover them, no road side park for resting when you travel and best of all the wild flowers. She is finally with Lyndon and starting to plant wildflowers in Heaven. My prayers and thoughts are with the family. She has left a great leagacy and there is noone who could fill she shoes.
July 12, 2007
God Bless you Lady Bird, you one fine lady from the great state of Texas. Thanks for everything you did for Texas
July 12, 2007
To the Family-

She was such a wonderful lady- so full of grace and dignity, and a heart as big as Texas. She helped many youth, including me, become the people we are today and I am truly honored to have known her and worked with her. She is one of the reasons I am now the Texas State PTA Environmental Chairman.

Sincerely,

Casey (Turner) Magnuson

As an employee of the L.B.J. Corp. It was my privilege to have been invited to spend time with Lady Bird. I shall always remember her kindness, her love of people and her marvelous sense of humor.

My heartfelt sympathy to her family .

To the Johnson family:
my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of a GREAT LADY of TEXAS she was a true Texan and a true LADY I met one of the girls and a grandchild at Astroworld and was able to talk to the nanny and the secret service person at the time waiting on the family to come off the tower... I believe it was Lucy and her first child.. everyone was so nice and I just wish I could have met Lady Bird Johnson...

Mrs. Ladybird:

You were a role model for three generations of Texas women. You taught us how to be gracious and to rise above pettiness and ugliness. You will be missed.

I will always be grateful to Lady Bird Johnson for her tireless work for highway beautification. She was a gracious and generous lady and she will be missed. My prayers are with you. May God surround and comfort you with His love.
July 12, 2007
We were saddened to hear of Lady Bird's passing but know that she is in a much better place. Every spring when the wild flowers bloom, we will remember her mark on our great state. Rest in peace, Mrs. Johnson and thank you.
July 12, 2007
RIP Precious
July 12, 2007
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
July 12, 2007
I think of Lady Bird everytime I see flowers on the sides of the roads. She had such a love for flowers and making it possible for everyone to enjoy them as we travel.
July 12, 2007
To Lynda and Luci and your family,
I was very sad to hear the loss of your mother, Lady Bird. Your mother did so much for the state that she loved, Texas. Everytime in the spring going down 635 aka (LBJ Freeway) in Dallas seeing mainly the bluebonnets and other wildflowers I would think about Lady Bird. Your mother "planted" the world with different kinds of flowers and God's love. At this time in the loss of your loving mother, I ask that God give you the peace you need and know that God is with you at all times. May the work of your mother began in everyone that loved her.
With Deepest Sympathy,
July 12, 2007
We lost another great lady in Texas yesterday. Lady Bird Johnson passed away, and I hope a flight of angels garlanded with Texas wild flowers guided her to her rest. She was so instrumental in making Texas proud of its bounty of wild beauty. I am grateful to have benefitted from the generosity of her imagination, the abidding depth of her wisdom, and the courage of her spirit. As a Texan who has thrilled at the beauty that she helped bring to the roadways of Texas, I would like to see the entire Texas roadway system named in her honors. My deep sympathy to her family.
July 12, 2007
My prayers are with the family during this time. Lady Bird was truly a Lady of Texas. She will be missed by many,but we will all remember her every spring when we see the wildflowers.
July 12, 2007
Deepest condolences to the Johnson family and close friends.

As a child of the 60's, I remember the ugly sight of huge salvage yards and garbage alongside our roadways. Now we enjoy wildflowers! Thank you Lady Bird. Your spirit will be ever present as those flowers blossom each spring. You're truly Mother Nature. I'm glad the rest of the world is now realizing the gem we've always known lived amongst us.
July 12, 2007
Mrs. Johnson is a wonderful role model for me. I only hope that I can be half as graceful, elegant, and strong as she was. Please know that our state and nation share your sorry.
July 12, 2007
Sincere sympathy and love in the loss of this regal lady! I am a retired registered nurse in TN
July 12, 2007
You were one of my truly favorite "political" personalities...pulled into this arena by your husband. I never heard a negative comment about you except the Texas twang that we will all cherish. Thanks for being so gracious and so consistent to your "causes" for your entire life. Tom
July 12, 2007
Ms. Johnson was the epitome of a Southern lady. Strong and feminine and attuned to the little things in life as well as the big things. Her contributions and presence have often been overlooked against other first ladies but we were lucky to have her and won't see her like again. To the Johnson family, you were blessed and our thoughts are with you.
July 12, 2007
What a remarkable legacy Mrs. Johnson left all of us. Having no appreciation for flowers, the tulips in Washington DC speak for the work she did.
May she rest in peace and may her family know she is now an angel in Heaven watching out over each of them. God Bless.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird,you will be missed..Thank you for the beautiful wildflowers we enjoy every trip back home to Austin..You were quite the lady..

TO A WONDERFUL WOMAN....I HAD THE PRIVLEDGE TO PERFORM MY MUSIC AT THE WILDFLOWER CENTER WITH LADY BIRD PRESENT (ON SEVERAL OCCASSIONS). I ALWAYS REQUESTED A PHOTO OF/WITH HER.(THIS WAS NEVER ALLOWED,AN APPARENT SECRET SERVICE RULE) I GREETED HER ONCE, AND SHE HANDED ME A PHOTO OF HER, IT WAS A PAINTING REPRODUCTION, TORN FROM A PROGRAM OR MAGAZINE....SHE HAD SIGNED HER AUTOGRAPH ACROSS THE FRONT....I STILL HAVE IT!!! THIS IS THE KIND OF WOMAN SHE WAS. OUR TEXAS IS MORE BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE OF HER, AND DEEPLY SADDENED WITHOUT HER. REST EASY MISS CLAUDIA.....
July 12, 2007
A great lady for America; "ginormous" describes her great personality, character and humanity. Today, so Texas proud for all her contributions.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird's legacy as wife, mother and outstanding contributions to America should awaken all women to ask "what we can do for our country" and homes to make our beloved America and the world a
safer place. "Let us disagree without being disagreeable"--Luci
told a booing crowd of school children at the LBJ cammpaign whistle-stop in Jesup, Ga. Profound for all to adhear. It is an honor to offer my deepest sympathy to all of you. We have been blessed to enjoy her contributions to us all.
July 12, 2007
Thank you for your dedication to our nation and to our beautiful state. We are proud Texans.
July 12, 2007
With sincere synpathy from our staff as we pray for continued strength for the family.

My thoughts are prayers are with all of you in your time of rememberance. It has been an honor knowing Ms. Johnson since Jennifer and I became best friends 22 years ago. She was like another Grandmother to me. I wish I could join you all however duty calls your Navy girl away.
Love,

Thanks for your caring spirit for all man kind. I am praying for the family for strength.
July 12, 2007
In 1971 when I was a freshman at Hughes Springs High School, Lady Bird Johnson came to Hughes Springs, TX to dedicate the beginning of the Wildflower Trails of Texas. This great lady did so much to beautify our state. I am so very proud to have this memory of her. I will always be reminded of her when I see those wildflowers blooming beside our state highways.
July 12, 2007
Thank you so much for all you've done for Texas and Texans. Vaya con Dios. You will be sorely missed.
July 12, 2007
I think Lady Bird was a very noble and gracious lady. At the time her husband was president, I lived in north San Antonio near Hwy 281, and their Texas White House was only a short distance up Hwy. 281, a fact I found interesting. I got to meet Pres. Johnson 2 times: once while singing with the Trinity University choir at the Steves' home in San Antonio and once in Austin at the University of Texas after the choirs sang there, I believe around Easter time. He shook hands with everybody. Later on, as a flight attendant for Braniff International, I had her and part of her family on one of my flights to Mexico. They sat in coach instead of first class, and were very quiet - she, the wife of a former president. I admire all her work to beautify Texas. When we drive the highways between Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas, we now get to see beautiful wildflowers in the spring along the roadsides, whereas before they were all mowed down. Spreading beauty was part of her legacy. Blessings and comfort to her family in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sincerely,
Kathy Clark
July 12, 2007
To the johnson family it saddens me to hear about Mrs. Johnson. She was a very wonderful woman. She will be greatly missed. She will never be forgotten. My deepest condolences go out to all of you at this point and time in your terrible loss.
July 12, 2007
Dear Family,

I am truly sorry to hear of your loss. My Mother loved to garden and was a great fan of what Mrs. Johnson tried to do in beautifying America. Please know that she and my Mother are now walking and gardening in the the most beautiful garden in all of creation. They are happy, at peace and have no pain or suffering. My prayers are with all of you to ease your sorrow.
July 12, 2007
Thank you for your class.

Dear Lynda and Luci, Family and Friends Your sweet mother was a beautiful lady with a beautiful soul. We will miss her. Every time we drive the roads of this nation, and see the lovely flowers, we will remember Lady Bird. You are in our prayers.
July 12, 2007
To Lynda and Luci, I admired your Mom. Gracious under many difficult situations. Just about every American driver uses a trash bag in their cars, thanks to your Mother's beautification program. Our highways are a tribute to her. Each flower is a Lady Bird Johnson to me.
July 12, 2007
Lucy,Linda,& Family,
I was very saddend by the loss of your mother! She has left us a wonderfull legacy with the wild flowers and her love for nature and beauty! She will be very much missed by all who knew and loved her!!!

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

July 12, 2007
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU IN HIS Heart, and plant your flowers, and make heaven more beautiful and make god smile,for you are doing his work.
July 12, 2007
Always when I thought about Lady Bird, I would think of those beautiful blue bells in Texas. You have my deepest sympathy for the family in your great loss.
July 12, 2007
Please accept my deepest sympathies. No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. I was sorry to hear of your loss and also of mine. I remember my father [Charles E. Patillo Sr.] talking about Lady Bird Johnson and I am aware of our family connection. I also remember being at Aunt Minnie Patillo`s house although I was very little at that time. My deepest thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve. My heart goes out to you all at this time and in the days ahead. May your family,friends and happy memories bring all of you comfort. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you at this time. God`s blessings be with you. Love Marie Patillo Thomas

One of the most admired woman of my lifetime. Thank God for giving us such a gift! She will be missed but never forgotten. My sympathy goes out to all that have lost this precious woman. She made this world a more beautiful place in so many ways.
July 12, 2007
Mrs. Johnson embodied the term "Lady". She conducted herself with true grace no matter what the circumstances. She was the "virtuous woman whose price is above rubies." May she rest in peace.
July 12, 2007
Thanks for all the beauty you spread in Texas.
July 12, 2007
The Eyes of Texas are teary at the loss of such a true Texan, true American, and true Lady. God Bless Mrs. Johnson and Family.

Dear Linda and Luci, Friends and Loved Ones,
We are so sorry for your loss and hope you are sheltered by all the happy memories.
We are proud to fly our flags at half staff in honor and memory of our Lady Bird.
July 12, 2007
Fly away Lady Bird. Your time on Earth is done but your legacy will live on forever. May God bless your family and give them comfort. We were blessed to have you as our own First Lady of Texas.
July 12, 2007
To Lynda & Luci and families

Texas has lost a wonderful woman. She has inspired many people. She will now be able to go home with the angels and rejoin LBJ for eternity. Your parents have made a great impression on my two teenage sons. We have been to the LBJ Ranch a couple of times and each time we have learned something new. Although they are teenage boys, I know they listen to the tour guides about the ranch, because after hearing the news last night, my sixteen year old asked if visitors would now be able to tour the ranch house in future years. We all want to come and visit again and hope to maybe one day be able to meet you and your families, since we did not get to have the pleasure of meeting your two wonderful parents.

To you and your families my many condolences. Your mom Lady Bird Johnson has been given her wings to fly up and rejoin you dad LBJ.

With Sympathy,
July 12, 2007
Your family will be in my prayers. May God grant you the strength to endure this loss. We visited the LBJ Library in February and were so impressed with it, especially the exhibits and info about Lady Bird. She seemed to be a true lady, genuinely caring and compassionate and her love for her country and others will live forever. What a wonderful role model she is!
July 12, 2007
My thoughts are with the Johnson family during their time of grief.
July 12, 2007
LadyBird Johnsons has always been an inspiriation to me, a beacon pointing towards what a Texan is supposed to be. I have always admired her for her honesty and her actions. She will always be a Texas icon. Texas will miss her.
July 12, 2007
We have lost a truly fine lady like none other. We love you and will miss you, Lady Bird. What a wonderful woman to remember always. Heaven will be even more beautiful with Lady Bird Johnson there.
July 12, 2007
“Let there be an over abundance of wildflowers and bluebonnets this spring in honor of Lady Bird.”
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird was a beautiful flower and though that flower is no longer blooming, she will always be remembered with love. She was a true Lady in every sense of the word. Luci, Lynda, and all the family.....my deepest sympathy to you today and in the coming weeks.
July 12, 2007
I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mrs. Johnson. When I was in elementary school, we studied the roles of the president and the first lady, and I always thought she was one of the best first ladies we have had to grace the office. God bless the family,friends, and staff of Mrs. Johnson.
July 12, 2007
My prayers are with the family at this time of sorrow.
July 12, 2007
While at Florida State University, Lady Bird and Lynda came through campaigning for LBJ. Lynda even donned the Seminole headdress. About that time, Lady Bird had instituted her beautify the roadways project. Now living here in TX, I am forever grateful for the beautiful wildflowers that I enjoy photographing. Her legacy will live on for others to enjoy.
July 12, 2007
I am very proud to have known this fine Lady. As a young marine officer, I had the privilege of interaction with she and the late president early on in my career. The many times I was in Mrs. Johnson's presence, she always made me feel so comfortable and showed her personal compassion to each person she met. Our country was blessed by having this fine citizen to represent this country as a First Lady. My condolences to Linda, Luci, and the many other family members.

Texas has truely lost a great "Lady". What a wonderful full life she had. Thank you, Dear Lord, for giving Ladybird to us. God Bless all the Johnson family.
July 12, 2007
To Lynda, Luci and family.

We send our deepest smypathy at this time with the loss of your mother. She was a great Texan and a gracious lady and we will miss her and her devotion to you all and to the people of this country. My mother always refers to Lady Bird as the "Jewel" of this state and she is right. She made this state her canvas and painted many beautiful pictures with her love of wildflowers. We have her to thank each year when the bluebonnets start to bloom. We have always been proud that President Johnson was our "Texas" President and your mother was such a great First Lady. They made us proud to be Texans. We saw your mother many years ago walking up the trail out at the park, but didn't want to disturb her in stopping to say hello. You could tell she was enjoying her walk with friends. We were just at the park on Friday and drove down RR 1 past the ranch house and it is still such a marvel to be surrounded by such beauty, history and grandure. No one will ever be able to produce the large amount of work for our nation to share in for the rest of our lives as did both your mother and father. Please accept our condolenses and our hope that your fondest memories of Lady Bird keep you uplifted during these next difficult days. With our thoughts, prayers and love.
July 12, 2007
Everytime I visit NJ and ride on Route 78, I always comment - What a nice highway - there are no commercial neon signs,etc - just the beauty God created....and then my Uncle replies...Thank Lady Bird Johnson for this nice ride....so, I
do thank you for your concern and appreciate what you did for Route 78 and other environmental concerns........

You were Blessed with a wonderful life....Prayers and sympathy to your family.........Rest in Peace

The first lady had faith that could move mountians.I loved the spunk about her never thinking twice about putting the mr. back in his place. she was truely a remarkable lady..
July 12, 2007
Growing up in Dallas in the 1960's, our yard man, Earl "Early" Lovely, often told us of how his mother worked for the Taylors in Karnack in the early 1900's, and how she had bestowed the nickname "Lady Bird" on Mrs. Johnson in her infancy. Now that Early is gone, as is President Johnson, and now Lady Bird, it brings to mind the long cascade of friends, known and unknown, who have passed on to the next life. I wish you condolences and many days of fond memories of Mrs. Johnson's remarkable life, a life obviously well-lived.
July 12, 2007
Thank you for being such a strong and proud woman and for making a difference.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson was our national "Steel Wildflower." Her legacy will live for untold generations. I'll always cherish the memory of her visit to Galveston with Helen Hayes and Dorothy Kirsten in the mid-80's.
July 12, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I was blessed to be able to meet Mrs. Johnson and be in her gracious presence from time to time. Her spirit will live on forever in all of you, and in the contributions she made to this world making it a much better and more beautiful place to be.
July 12, 2007
Your life has been a shining beacon to your fellow Texans. I never see a Bluebonnet in springtime that I don't think of you and LBJ.
July 12, 2007
As strong as an Texas Pine, yet delicate and fragrant as a Tyler Rose. She was truly an East Texas Lady.

May you make Heaven half as beautiful as Texas.

Mrs. Johnson makes me proud to be a woman, a Texan and a Democrat. She is truly the type of role model we need to hold up to our young women.
As someone who recently lost her mother, I extend my deepest sympathy to her family. After all the accolades have died down, in the end you have lost your mother. You will recover, but you will always feel a little different. Thank you for sharing her with us all.
July 12, 2007
As a lifelong admirer of both President Johnson & Lady Bird, I was greatly saddened to learn of Mrs. Johnson's passing yesterday. My sincerest condolences to the family on this sad occasion. I can only pray that President & Mrs. Johnson are reunited at last for all eternity. May wildflowers endlessly bloom in loving memory of these two great Americans. Our country will always be a better place because of their lifetimes of service. I honor their memory.
July 12, 2007
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life’s routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
July 12, 2007
Our deepest sympathy to all the family and friends of a lovely first lady who truly is one of the last of her type. We admired her , as well as the family, through the years and are thankful for having her in our history.
July 12, 2007
May the Angels come to greet our former First Lady as she enters the Gates of Heaven. She endured a lot with grace and courage. We hope the Johnson family will be comforted in their time of grief.
July 12, 2007
My heart goes out to the family at this sad time. Lady Bird was truly a "Lady" and did so mony wonderful things for our country! Her sweet smile and gentle ways will be sorely missed!
God Bless you all,

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

July 12, 2007
To a great Lady we will miss. Your family has my deepest sympathy.
July 12, 2007
To the Johnson Family,
May the Lord bless and keep you close during your time of sorrow.
July 12, 2007
May you rest in peace.
July 12, 2007
Dear Ms. Lady Bird
Thank you for placing a focus on the natural beauty of the USA, and wildflowers in particular. I remember when you sponsored the school art contest across the State of Texas- for bluebonnets!
You were gracious and kind.
Condolences to your family.
July 12, 2007
Our family attended an event years ago at the LBJ School of Public Affairs in Austin while my husband was a doctoral student at UT. While there Mrs. Johnson and her daughter came in to the room. Lady Bird saw my daughter who was about 3 or 4 years old and asked her to come closer. She then told her that she was wearing the prettiest dress she'd ever seen and asked where it was from! My little girl told her it was from Sears and Lady Bird told her that she she had also bought her little girls dresses from Sears. We asked to take a photo and this picture will remain a fond memory of our meeting this very gracious lady. She was a genuine Texas treasure.
July 12, 2007
This nation has lost another gracious lady, and there will not be another quite like her. She has left us a wonderful legacy with her wildflowers and Wildflower Center. May G-d comfort all of her family and her memory be a blessing.
July 12, 2007
God bless you, Gentle Lady. You are such a blessing to us all.
July 12, 2007
I think of you everytime I see the wildflowers on the side of the road. Thanks
July 12, 2007
Lynda and Luci, remember that your mother was one of God's best creations and her life was well lived. The angels are delighted she has joined them in heaven. My blessings to your family.
July 12, 2007
Such a Beautidful Lady Texas has lost. There will never be one quite like her.
I extend my sympathy to the Johnson girls and their family's.

The planet will miss this great lady, but how wonderful that she lived to witness this year's perhaps once in a lifetime wildflower season. I was lucky enough to travel the Hill Country this spring/early summer...Thank you Lady Bird.
July 12, 2007
The perfect picture of southern style and grace, you have given Texans such a wonderful legacy.
We will continue to think fondly of you each sping when Texas is in bloom.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird was a wonderful human being who accepted her sufferings and who concentrated on the positive and what she could give back. Her environmental accomplishments will be remembered forever as will she. God bless her!
July 12, 2007
Your strength and understanding will bloom each year with your flowers. I'm so glad to have shaken your hand. May you rest among endless gardens.
July 12, 2007
I remember living in Austin and as a little girl, my parents would drive my brother and I up to the LBJ Ranch and we would always stop along the roadside to buy peaches....what breathtaking country...as lovely as you.
July 12, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
July 12, 2007
Thanks for all the wonderful wildflowers you gave recognition to in my lifetime.....
July 12, 2007
Texas has lost its grandest Lady and America has lost a national treasure but fortunately her legacy will live on in the hearts of her family and friends and in the magnificent fields of her precious wildflowers. With deepest respect and sympathy to her family....God bless.
July 12, 2007
After many long years, LBJ and Lady Bird are together again. For Texans like myself, we learned as children in the 1960's just how wonderful, loving and powerful Lady Bird was. Her great civic and charitable acts throughout her life helped so many. She loved our Great State and she made it so much better during her time here on earth. Her good deeds will live long for many generations to come. God Bless you, Lady Bird, and Rest In Peace.
July 12, 2007
I was lucky enough to live in Austin for 10 years, where I learned what a great woman Lady Bird Johnson was, and enjoyed her legacy of wildflowers as I drove the highways of Texas. I've never looked at a wildflower or "weed" in the same way since. This country has been forever changed for the good as a result of the efforts of this great lady. Rest now, Mrs. Johnson, and enjoy the beauty you've created.
July 12, 2007
God Bless you, Lady Bird. You were a class act. You brought grace and beauty to the country when we needed it most. May you rest in peace with your beloved Lyndon. There will never be another like you.
July 12, 2007
A great influence on my life. Thanks for passing this way. My sympathy to the family and a big thank you for sharing her with us.
July 12, 2007
Jackie Kennedy beautified the White

House. Lady Bird beautifed America.

I met her when she came to Asheville

in 1968. She made you feel like a

friend in a room full of people.

Our country has lost a great First

Lady.

Sincerely,

July 12, 2007
America and the World has lost a great lady. We have family and friends who reside dear the LBJ ranch and they remember that Lady Bird was indeed a real lady. I will forever remember her composure and grace following the assination of President Kennedy.
July 12, 2007
Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson,
Thank you for your tireless and committed service to our country. Thank you for your love of the environment, and for your love of social justice. You have indeed contributed to a richer quality of life here in the United States Of America and the world. Thank you for being an outstanding Texan, American and world citizen. May God bless you and your family now and always.
July 12, 2007
Thank you for all you did. A true example of grace, she will be missed but never forgotten. Everytime I see a wildflower in Texas, I will think of her.
July 12, 2007
Peace.
July 12, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers go to the Johnson family during this difficult time.

A GREAT LADY, YOU WILL BE MISSED.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID TO BEAUTIFY OUR GREAT STATE OF TEXAS. TRULY, A VERY SOUTHERN LADY.
July 12, 2007
May the Angels of Heaven help you plant those unconditional loving seeds of love you so graciously showered over all of America! We have been Blessed to have had you in our presence.
July 12, 2007
The name, Lady Bird, says it all. She was Texan to the core. She helped return pride to Texas after the debacle in Dallas in '63. She epitomized the Texas Woman. She never looked for a fight, but she never ran from one. She would dress up to go to the mailbox. I'm one native Texan that will miss the grace and charm that Lady Bird exuded.
July 12, 2007
Dearest Lady,
May you sleep in peace and rise in glory. I am so thankful for the entirety of your life and works.
Pax tecum en aeternum.
July 12, 2007
Heaven will be filled with beautiful flowers and have a beautiful angel like you may you rest in peace.
July 12, 2007
Sleep in peace lovely Lady. Your time on earth was spent making it a better place. You were "green" before it was fashionable.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson showed the world how to be a Southern Lady. She was an epitome of a mother, wife, friend, and true Texan. She will be missed. Her family can rest in the fact that now she is in Heaven with LBJ and is waiting for them to join her one day. Thanks to all of you for sharing your mom with the rest of the world! God bless!
July 12, 2007
I have fond and treasured memories of meeting Mrs. Johnson at the ranch. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jennifer, Catherine, Mr. and Mrs. Robb, and the rest of the family. With deepest sympathy, Merrilie
July 12, 2007
May the Angels welcome you with
charm and grace. You have left an elegant sense of style and sophistication in my lifetime...
You Are an ANGEL !!!
July 12, 2007
one of the grand women of our times.she was indeed a pillow of strength for all people. may she rest in peace.
July 12, 2007
Our nation has lost one of its greatest. May God bless her soul and may she find her eternal rest alongside of our beloved former President Lyndon Johnson.
July 12, 2007
In 1995, when my wife and I moved to Texas (at the time, Killeen/Fort Hood) from New Orleans, we were on Hwy. 71 east coming from I-10 (we didn't know any better) and we were pretty weary. My wife in the passenger seat was sleeping, then all of a sudden woke up and saw all the wildflowers on the highway. She said she thought she'd died and gone to heaven. It was an emotional moment for both of us, like God was laying out the red carpet and saying, "Welcome to your new home." We had never seen such beauty, and we were impressed. Thank you, Lady Bird, for making Texas so beautiful. We have been Texans ever since, now living in the Austin area, and never plan to leave. Thank you, God bless you, and we wish the greatest condolences on your family - and the extended family that is every Texan.

I wish I could have met you on the LBJ Ranch tour, but perhaps we'll meet each other one day in heaven.
July 12, 2007
No one was ever more deserving of being called Lady. We've lost a wonderful and gracious human being.
July 12, 2007
I had the distinct honor to meet Mrs. Johnson when I was a young girl. I was so impressed with her sparkling smile and her genuine grace and charm. Everytime I see beautiful wildflowers throughout this country, I remain thankful to Mrs. Johnson. God Bless you Lady Bird and grant you eternal peace. We will forever hold you in high esteem.
July 12, 2007
Thank you for your wisdom and strength that you have given us. Our nation deserves strong women like Mrs. Johnson. Thank you President and Mrs. Johnson for thinking about the poor and and the forgotten. Thank you for giving us freedom. The Great Society lives on.
July 12, 2007
I had so much respect for Lady Bird. I thought she was a very classy first lady who rarely sought any attention for herself, but still remember her highway beautification campaign. I believe she will be remembered in history as a very strong and able First Lady.
July 12, 2007
May the words of you life live on in the lives of others. May the women of this nation reflect and relize what a wonderful and gracious role model that you were. May you rest in peace and happines.
July 12, 2007
Thanks for helping to make our nation beautiful! You will always be remembered fondly-
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird and Mrs. Humphrey visited Columbus, IN in 1967. Both were so gracious. Who can ever forget her lovely smile and dedication to everything she undertook.
July 12, 2007
May she rest in peace my symphy to the family.
July 12, 2007
Thank you, Lady Bird for all of the lovely flowers throughout Texas and our great hike & bike trail here in Austin! You were truly a gracious and caring individual.
July 12, 2007
A woman of true courage! Rick says it best!

Lady Bird Is Gone

Submitted by Rick Perlstein on July 11, 2007 - 7:16pm.

I loved her. They'll tell you about the wildflowers and the crusade against unsightly billboards. They won't tell you about what a great liberal she was, what a brave warrior against racism she was - that she risked her life for these principles
July 12, 2007
Who can forget the gracious, witty, Lady Bird Johnson. Our prayers to the girls and the entire family. She was a wonderful First Lady.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson was the first First Lady I truely remember from my childhood. Even then I was impressed that this woman was working to beautify America. From that time on I've always held Mrs. Johnson in high regard. We have lost a great woman and my sympathy goes out to her daughters and family in this time of loss.
July 12, 2007
As a native Texan in California, wildflowers are one thing I miss and will be the one thing that bring me back.
My deepest sympathies.
July 12, 2007
It is an honor to offer my deepest sympathy to her daughters and family. She will always be remembered as making our Country so beautiful..and everytime I see all the wonderful wild flowers...I immediately think of her and the vision she had for our beautiful Texas. She will always be remembered as an elegant lovely First Lady. Heaven is lucky to get her.

I was only a young boy of 7 when Johnson took office, but I do remember his wife throughout the years and always admired her . Goodbye Madame First Lady, Thank you for your service to all America
July 12, 2007
She was such a fine lady. I am so sad that she has left us.
July 12, 2007
We are all better humans because of what LBirdJ taught us. Grace, intelligence, beauty and a humor are traits she embodied and understood.

May her family be blessed by our prayers as we attempt to ease her path. Her trail is certainly scattered with bluebonnets. Thank you Lady Bird. God Bless this Lady of Texas.
July 12, 2007
I remember Lady Bird as a gracious and kind woman. Thank you for her gift of pretty wildflowers. I'm sorry for your loss, may you find comfort in your many memories of her.

Mrs. Johnson was the perfect first lady.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird Johnson was truly our most valuable asset in Texas. She was our true "Steel Magnolia". We who loved her will truly miss her but each spring will be reminded of her and what she gave us. Her gifts to us will live forever.

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

July 12, 2007
On of the truly great First Ladies America has ever had. Lady Bird Johnson was always the personification of a genteel Southern Lady. America is a little poorer at her lose. God Bless her family during this hard time.
July 12, 2007
She was a woman of such elegance and grace, what so many of us should aspire to be.

There are so many Texas symbols but to me, she will always be the ultimate example of what being a Texan is all about.

She will be missed! Rest in peace.
July 12, 2007
SHE WAS A SHINIG LIGHT FOR THIS GREAT NATION. MAY THE LORD HOLD HER IN HIS BOSOM. REST IN PEACE LADY BIRD.
July 12, 2007
I never drive the roads of Texas that I do not thank your mother for her vision. I wish you solace in your loss. She was a true southern woman, velvet clad steel. How wonderful that you had her all these years.
July 12, 2007
With her warm, endearing smile, graciousness and sweet Southern Texas accent, everywhere she went she made me so proud to be a Texan. I admired her greatly and she and her family are in my prayers. God bless you, Mrs. Johnson. We will all miss you. Today, the Eyes of Texas and the world are upon you.
July 12, 2007

July 12, 2007
Heaven will be more beautiful today. God bless our Lady Bird. God Bless Texas.
July 12, 2007
What I remember most about Mrs. Johnson was the fact that while she was an extraordinary person who took delight in ordinary things.

She was always gracious, ever the epitome of the SOUTHERN LADY!
She was an amazing woman -- extremely intelligent, compassionate, concerned about environmental issues and she brought so much exquisite beauty to our world making it all so much more beautiful with her sincere love of wildflowers and NATIVE TEXAS landscapes!

She was such a strong individual as well with a shrewd business sense and she was a good person.

During my entire career covering news and politics in Texas, I can not thing of anyone who had anything negative at all to say about Mrs. Johnson--No one at all!

I once saw her in the Sears store at Hancock Center here in Austin and I said, "Hello, Mrs. Johnson, how are you today, ma'am?" She allowed that she was fine and thanked me for asking. I think she was there with one or more of her grandsons. I don't recall that any Secret Service persons were around and I felt concerned about that because such a precious national treasure as Mrs. Johnson needed protection,in my opinion.
I went on about my business and when I was leaving, I saw this huge crowd of people just gawking and staring at her. I was very concerned but the crowd was very well-behaved. I had worried needlessly about possible harm to her because the folks in the crowd had all fallen under her quiet, gentle spell and were enchanted by her dignity, warmth and the fact that she was, for the moment, an ordinary person buying ordinary things in an ordinary store. And they loved her for it!

I remember her for her sense of humor, her political acumen, her humility and I used to wish that SHE could have been President!

SHE WILL BE MISSED!
July 12, 2007
I wish to express my sympathy at the loss of a reaaly great individual. We were blessed to have had her as the First Lady of the nation and as first lady of the wildflowers. Thank you for being you.
July 12, 2007
To the family , your mother was loved by so many people. She lived a long and prosperous life. May you know, she is now in the arms of angels and will always be in your hearts and ours. May God comfort you and in the future.
July 12, 2007
We have lost another of our Gracious Ladies; a Southern Belle, charming, kind, and thoughtful. She will be kindly remembered every spring across America when the wildflowers bloom along our nation's highways.
I am privileged to be old enough to remember her charm, grace, and smile.
Oh that we had more like the late Lady Bird Johnson!
But she is now at home with her beloved Lyndon and history will forever remember them and their love for the people of this nation.
July 12, 2007
Dear Lynda Bird, Luci and extended family. Your parents were such great role models, and they inspired fellow citizens to look beyond the present, and build for future generations.Spring in Texas is Lady Bird's gift to all of us!
I last spoke with your mother at the Austin airport, as we were waiting on a flight, and she was waiting on guests to arrive. I will always remember her graciousness.
God grant you peace and serenity.
July 12, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was a true lady and it is my prayer that her legacy lives on for generations to come.
July 12, 2007
In the spring, I say “Thank you, Lady Bird Johnson” out loud at least once as I drive down our Texas highways and see all of the beautiful wildflowers.

Our state and our nation lost a most gracious and wonderful representative. My sympathy to her family.
July 12, 2007
"Rest in Peace"!
July 12, 2007
I had the honor and privilege of meeting Mrs. Johnson twice in my lifetime, once when President Johnson was campaigning for Senator in Houston in the l950's-I was just a child, but Mrs. Johnson was so kind in taking the time to talk to me. Later, in the l960 campaign, I met her at one of the Kennedy teas held in Houston. What a thrill to meet her and the Kennedy women! She was a great role model for anyone with her quiet confidence and grace and the strength and fortitude to get done what she saw was needed for our country. God bless her and her family.
July 12, 2007
In a chance encounter on the elevator of the LBJ Library where I spent my student days, you were very gracious to an awed young man. Bless you and thank you.
July 12, 2007
Thank you, Lady Bird, for your grace and vision of a beautiful America. Thank you for being such a shining example of a beautiful,warm, gracious lady.May God Bless your wonderful family.
July 12, 2007
So sorrow to read about the loss of Mrs.Johnson.My deep condolence to you and your family.We know that one day soon death will be know more and out cry will be no more Rev.21:3-5 and John 5:28,29 give us hope of seeing our loved ones again. May this promise for our loved ones give you hope for what Jehovah God is going to do.
July 12, 2007
What an inspiration of life, even in death she pulls us up higher. God bless the sweet memories.
July 12, 2007
Being a teenager in the DC area while the Johnson family served our country, I saw on a daily basis, what a strong, courageous person Lady Bird was. Her activism for the environment set the stage for later generations. Relocating for life to Austin while in the military, I again was privy to see her in all of her glory. Mrs Johnson leaves a wonderful legacy as a mother, wife, and activist. My condolences to a true American family.
July 12, 2007
What a wonderful, elegant, true Southern lady Mrs. Johnson was. She set an example that we should all be proud to follow, and she will be sorely missed. Our heartfelt condolences to her family.
July 12, 2007
Even as a child i was so impressed with this wonderful Texan woman. That I even named my first pet, a beagle, Lady Bird. She truly showed the world what being a Texan was all about. She will be greatly missed.
July 12, 2007
A thank you too late ma'am. Your beautiful legacy transcends time and words.
July 12, 2007
As a young man of 19, I watched the presidential motorcade pass by the 1st National Bank in downtown Dallas on Nov 22, 1963 and couldn't know that in two blocks the torch was going to be passed from Camelot to Johnson City. You know you have a legacy when every time someone sees a flower, they think of you.
July 12, 2007
Everyday millions of Americans enjoy the wildflowers blooming along our highways as a result of your efforts. Thank you for leaving us with beautiful, living memories of your view of the world.
July 12, 2007
I really admired her whole family. I grew up in the era with her daughters. She did alot to beautify America. I always think of her in the midst of flowers. She was a wonderful lady.
July 12, 2007
We have lost a great American. She has done so much for this country.
July 12, 2007
WE will forever remember such a gracious lady and will always be reminded of her through the beautiful wildflowers that now grace our highways.

July 12, 2007
Mrs. Johnson was a special first lady in a very difficult time. Her graciousness was obvious and her love of her husband and children most evident in all she did. She is at peace now and with her beloved Lyndon.
Deepest sympathies to all of the members of her family.
July 12, 2007
She was a beautiful "Lady" who had a big heart for humanity.

I offer my family's condolences to the Johnson family. My husband and I were on a tour bus at the Johnson Ranch several years ago and Mrs. Johnson came outside and waved to the crowd. She was a very gracious woman.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

I had the privilege of working for her at KTBC (now KLBJ) during my college years at UT. We shared a common bond: both deep East Texans. She never forgot that when we had a chance to chat. What a lady. What a Lady Bird. God Bless.
July 12, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird for your life. YOu contributed quality to the rest of us. To your precious daughters I pray comfort, joy and peace in getting to have you for 94 wonderful years.

Heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Johnson's family and sincere sympathy to the grandchildren in the loss of their "Ninny." We all know how wonderful the public person was, but what a delight it must have been to have Lady Bird for a grandmother! You all will be in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead. God bless.

Lady Bird has been a hero and inspiration to this Texan woman since childhood. My prayers to her family.

Thanks to Lady Bird in the spring Hwy 71 surrounded with blankets of wild flowers. In the spring my commute to and from work is filled with beauty, and serenity. Goodbye Lovely Lady!

My vivid memory of the Kennedy assassination as a teenager is of Mrs. Johnson's composure and strength and that she stood as an island of calm amid the chaos and grief of that event.
July 12, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird for gracing our presence with your beauty, generosity and gracious spirit. Our beautiful Texas will always shine brightly because of your inspiration and determination. God bless your family and may you rest in peace.

Lady Bird Johnson was an engaging and smart woman who will be missed; her business acumen is often overlooked, and together with her love of the land, leaves an important legacy. My condolences to the Johnson family and to her many friends.

Mrs. Johnson occationally visited our store The Calcasieu Lumber Company @701 W. 5th street, in Austin during the Johnson Presidential years. She always had the charm, wit and friendliness she was known for. She surely was "One Of A KIND" May God Bless this fine LADY, she makes Texas and our Nation proud!
July 12, 2007
Everytime our family took the tour of President Johnson's Ranch in Stonewall I hoped for a glimpse of Lady Bird. She has been a role model of beauty and strength to me and her "White House Diary" was a true insight into her many roles and inner feelings. Thank you, Lady Bird, for all you have done for Texas and for our nation. You will always be remembered in the beauty of the Texas springtime!!!
May God comfort your precious family at this very sad time.

In the spring of 1982, I was a public high school senior who traveled from Dallas to Austin for the UIL journalism competition (where we students interviewed someone named Ben Sargent).

During a tour of the LBJ library with my beloved teacher, Julia Jeffress, we saw Lady Bird. My dear "JJ" and Lady Bird greeted each other like old friends. They had a lot in common. Both were gracious Texas women who taught me much.

My condolences on a loss of a dear, unique woman and my eternal respect for her life well-lived.
July 12, 2007
In the nineties, I served as a docent at the LBJ Library and had the privilege of meeting Mrs. Johnson. She was a most kind and gracious lady. She will be missed by so many. It was an honor to meet her.
July 12, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

July 12, 2007
You were a true lady in every sense of the word -- class, caring about others, enthusiasm, environmentalist, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother -- who will always be remembered with love and gratitude for your contributions to society.
July 12, 2007
I appreciate you, Lady Bird, every day that I see wildflowers along our roads and highways and native plants in our landscaping that provide habitats for native species of birds and butterflies. Thank you for educating us about our natural environment and doing so much to preserve its beauty throughout our country.
July 12, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
July 12, 2007
The family has our prayers and sympathy. She was loved by all
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird you will be missed as was and is your husband. I grew up with both of you when in the White House. God Bless.
July 12, 2007
I recall meeting her at a book signing, several years ago, as she autographed her book for me. I was living in Houston at the time. What a lovely lady and most personable. She will be missed.
July 12, 2007
A great lady, a great Texan, who was an evironmentalist before it became "cool" to be one, Lady Bird Johnson understood that is wasn't enough to say you worship God's creation. You also have to work at preserving and protecting what God has given us. The archiving of our national flora that is being done by the Wildflower Center is as important as the archiving of our national historical documents. The grasses and flowers that once filled our plains and valleys are as much who we are as are the words and ideals expressed in our most precious national papers. God bless you, Lady Bird Johnson.
July 12, 2007
Lady Bird left this world a better and more beautiful place. She was such an graceful and inspiring woman.

My deepest condolences to her family.
July 12, 2007
A shining example to everyone of living with character, integrity, love, compassion, strength and joy. To move in the stream of life and leave a rich and giving legacy for all who follow. Peaceful serenity to all who love her.
July 12, 2007
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
July 12, 2007
Thank you Lady Bird. I am too young to have known your husband's presidency but I am old enough to appreciate and be thankful for the legacy that you have left our great state. Every Spring when the wildflowers bloom we all think of you.
July 12, 2007
There are no words to express the lost that Texas has just recieved. Lady Bird was the yellow rose of Texas.
July 12, 2007
I remember Mrs. Johnson as a very gracious, loving and caring person. A true Southern lady. The Lord has taken a beautiful wild flower from us and planted her in his heavenly garden. We will miss one of the greatest "first ladies". God Bless you all.

I was only 14 years old the first time I heard Lady Bird's name. Now at 60, there isn't a spring that goes by that I don't immediately think of her when I see the first of the wildflowers in the fields and beside the road. She was a great daughter of Texas and will be sorely missed.
