The Couch family sends you our deep sympathies. Our mother was from Wharton, Willynn Brooks. Her parents were Leland Elmore Brooks and Willynn Miles Brooks. I recall several summers as a child visiting Wharton for several weeks and getting to visit with your dad and grandmother, among others. I also had the pleasure of another visit with him in Dallas when I was in college. "Courtship" and "Valentine's Day" were being presented at a local theater. I am thankful that so many of his works have been published. My daughters will get a touch of understanding about Wharton from them. Your dad was always welcoming, charming, open and so gentle. He will be deeply missed by so many. Blessings and prayers to all of you.
Nancy Miles Couch Davis, Leland Brooks Couch, and Jot Couch
