I had the pleasure of serving at Nigerian Christian Hospital with Dr Hood during my time there from 1984 -1986. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Our love and prayers to the family. My father, Melvin Courtney, served as an elder with the University Avenue congregation, as well as Highland Village, and enjoyed working with Maurice. My dad left this planet on Saturday, December 28, so I'm sure there's been a reunion in heaven for these two Christians!

My sincerest sympathies to the family of Dr. Hood. When I saw the obit it flooded my heart with memories. Dr. Hood was my father's doctor back in the early 60s here in Austin. As a young child I remember his kind, soft spoken, caring demeanor. Thank you!

Laurie, You & your siblings must be very proud of your parent's and happy & thankful for them now that they are at home with God. A gift to SIBI will be sent today in their memory. Bless you; your family and your siblings & their families.

Dear Laurie, Kathleen, and big brothers,

I am deeply saddened that your dad has left this Earth because he provided needed care to so many. I am proud to read his obituary and be reminded that I was among - if not -your first friends beginning in 1958 when our backyards abutted in Tarrytown. It was the beginning of some magical years!
I love remembering how your parents set an example for me early on when I observed they did daily morning exercises in their bedroom! GREAT HEALTH HABITS

I love remembering how your older brothers were a constant 'threat' - haha - as I was the oldest in my family and had no older brother. :0

I love remembering how I would come over and clean your room in exchange for music lessons and how I was so in awe of those composer busts you earned from your piano teacher.

I loved those woods surrounding your house on Forest Trail where we would hide and play Indians. (Never cowboys, of course!)

I didn't especially love that your dad was so quiet and stern, but mine was too…and somehow we endured…and also marveled at it. A deep inner strength that spoke to us way before we could understand its significance.

As I grew older and became a nurse, I fully learned to appreciate your dad's medical expertise and commitment to his profession. I was supposed to go to Nigeria with him the summer of 1978, but I was a newlywed and decided not to…unfortunately. What a treasure that experience would have been.

Unfortunately, I learned only today of your dad's passing or else I would be up there for the Austin visitation. (I live in Houston right now.) If there is any way I can make it to Lubbock Weds, I will….but regardless, please know I will be there in prayer and spirit.

Sincerely, Nancy McMillan Higgs
