Ann, I first met Page when I went to work in my first job and was blessed to be employed as his secretary at VA Trailways. That was in January 1959 and then when I moved to Waynesboro 6 years ago, a highlight of any day would be to see his wonderful smile and hear his kind voice. Please know you and the family are all in my prayers as you continue to heal with wonderful memories of a very special man.

Dear Ann,
Our sincerest sympathy to you and your family. It was a pleasure to have known such a dear, fine man. May God and your memories sustain you at this difficult time.
Sincerely, Gary and Jean Wade

Our familys thoughts and Prayers go out to Page and his family he will always be remembered.
As a Miller School Alum myself it is always sad to lose one of our own, God Bless, William W. Bartlow.

I've long thought that the best decision my parents made was to ask Page to be my godfather. Through early childhood vacations, golf rounds in Virginia, our Atlanta Braves-St. Louis Cardinals rivalry, great discussions over drinks and great meals, his wonderful wife Ann and three fine sons, my life was continually enriched by my godfather Page. On Friday, this world lost a great one, a man with a heart of gold, a man whose enthusiasm for life was absolutely contagious. Heaven is certainly now...

Ann, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. We all knew Page as a good, solid man.

Scott, sorry to read about the passing of your father. I remember you telling me about his World War II exploits and being captured. You have my sincere sympathy. You will think of him daily for the rest of your life.
