Dearest Nancy, Alane and family,
I have such wonderful memories of Everette and all of you.....he was head of a wild, wonderful bunch and he loved it! He was amazing to talk with, I always learned something I didn't know, and he was open to let you be. He opened his home and heart when I needed it and for that I will always love him. He was proud of his family..his greatest accomplishment...passing the love along. I remember following him with Nancy and Alane for long walks around the house. I will think of him at Thanksgiving making this game pie with everything in it...I was afraid to ask... but it all came together under his creation and was truly wonderful. Always, Evelyn

Nancy,
It has been a long time since the days at MCG in the Psychiatry Dept. but the passing of a friend can not remove memories- and we had some good ones.

You have family and friends to help you through this time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

Dr. Kuglar was a wonderful person. He was loved and respected by so many. I am thankful I had the opportunity to get to know him. The ones of us who were fortunate enough to be at Georgia Regional before the hospital opened formed a real bond. During the time he was Superintendent was the best of times. Nancy, you and the family, have my deepest sympathy.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the Kuglar Family. I cannot begin to count the stories I have heard from my father throughout my life that have begun with, "Kuglar and I," or "Me and Kug..." He will be missed, but his stories live on.

I have numerous fond memories of Dr. kuglar but the one that stands out the most is one of the quail hunting trips I went on with he and Sam Pursley down in Emanuel County. We had gotten a good ways away from the truck with the dogs when Dr. kuglar realized he had left his cigarette lighter in the truck. Neither Sam nor I had any matches but Dr Kuglar insisted that he would be alright without a smoke till we made the circle with the dogs. Well, because the dogs ran up on two covey of birds it took much longer to make that circle than we had imagined. Before we returned to the truck Dr. Kuglar was removing the tobacco from his cigarettes and trying to chew on it to satisfy his "nicotine fit". When we got about 100 yards away from the truck, Dr. Kuglar broke out in a little trot....going after his lighter. Sam and I really got a kick out that, and of course, Dr. kuglar was laughing with us.
