Guest Book Highlights

October 09, 2021 "My deepest sympathy to the family of Winston Groom. He was a great man. My cousin, Ed Hanlon, told me that Winston's father was his lawyer and that they would sit for hours telling stories. I know that Winston was a distant relative on the Hanlon side. The Hanlons came to Mobile in the 1850's from County Galway, Ireland. The Irish bring story telling to an art. Surely Winston has a new canvas of material to write about in Heaven. May God and all the Angels and Saints bless him. " - Marie O'Shaughnessy Martin
October 08, 2021 "Lt Winston Groom and I were in the same unit at Tan Son Nhut, Vietnam. We went on a one-day mission and I remember hin well. Funny, smart and very pleasant. I should have written something much earlier. Farewell my Vietnam brother. " - Fred Lara
June 04, 2021 "Winston was a distant cousin. I never met him, but I knew some of his ancestors. My cousin, Ed, told me that Winston's father would talk with him for hours and they were great stories. I only now found out Winston had passed away. My condolences to his family." - Marie O. Martin
October 19, 2020 "I liked his writing style , we had a lot in common as far as the Military goes" - John Mizell, Sr.
October 13, 2020 "I would like to express my condolences to the family. God is aware of the pain you are going through (Psalm 31:7). May he give you the strength that you need to get through this difficult time. " - LC (NC)
