I remember when a young journalism student from Savannah, GA, my college fiance, moved to attend Georgia State and ended up working at the Atlanta Constitution-Journal, the home of Eugene Patterson and Ralph McGill. These were incredible, world-changing and sad times.When I later moved to St. Petersburg and later on met Eugene Patterson, I felt I was meeting journalism royalty. These courageous journalists will never be forgotten.

He was the best friend reporters could ever have, strong in his defense of us and eager to publish good stories that hold government officials accountable. And the best writer that ever walked thru a newsroom. It's difficult to imagine life without him.

Saying thank you hardly seems adequate. Your courage, sense of fair play, and faith in humanity inspire us all.

When I returned to Emory University in January 1962, Eugene Patterson had replaced Ralph McGill as Guiding Light of The Atlanta Journal and Constitution. Destiny carried that truly gifted man far from Atlanta, but he has never been truly replaced.

I had the pleasure of meeting Gene Patterson many years ago at a presentation he made to some students. He was outstanding in his presence (respectful to everyone, articulate in his delivery and a beacon of ethics). I will never forget one statement he made--"We, in this business, need to wrestle everyday with whether this story is worth telling--not to belittle someone, not to ruin their personal lives--but whether there is some larger social good that will come from it"!! My sympathies to his family and friends--he was a remarkable person.
