I had the great privilege to meet Mr. Gammage as a Commander in the Navy and Naval Legal Service Office Corpus Christi. Little did I know the honor at the time as much as I knew it later retrospectively.

Dear Daddy,

It's been just over a year since you passed and I miss you so much everyday. I love you more than ever and it is completely gut wrenching to me everytime I know I can't pick up the phone and call you. I ask myself why you had to leave and will never know the answer. We all miss you so very much. I read over the guestbook, you had so very many friends and people really loved you. It makes me feel so proud, people call you a hero, said that you made history, but to me you were always just daddy. I truly don't know sometimes how to make it without your words of advice, your strong hugs, and your wonderful sense of humor. You gave me the gift of humor, compassion, understanding, and empathy. Thank you so much for that. I love you very much...you are missed everyday.

Love, Terry

I am one of those whose lives crossed paths with Bob years ago but literally just learned of his death today.

After many years of no connection at all, I was able to track Bob down over a year ago where we had two wonderful telephone visits walking down memory lane.

He was a great man in so many ways. As a young reporter and writer of editorials for a newspaper in Rosenberg, I opposed his first campaign for Congress. By his second campaign for the job, I was in his corner then and for the rest of his career which took so many good turns.

There is an abiding truth is that when two people meet and develop a respect for one another, that respect does not require constant communications.

The lesson that has been brought home to me today, however, is that if you have those friends in life whose paths have gone their separate direction, go renew it today before it is too late.

Bob was everything a public servant and public official should be. I am glad that 30 years after we first met that I had an opportunity to tell him how much I respected and admired his career.

The country could use some more young, dedicated, smart, and tough Bob Gammages today.

His was a life well-lived in service to others.
