I had met Capt. Herb Emory many times doing what he did often: giving of himself and his time to aRead More lot of community activities. I also had the pleasure of meeting his lovely wife, Karen, when they were both at the Arbor Place Mall for Olympic medalist, Elana Myers' most recent celebration. My prayers and condolences go out to her and the Emory family and friends, as I, too, try to get past the shock of his passing. Heaven gained what we have lost: a really sweet man with a wonderful sense of humor, who got many of us through the driving commutes, and helped so many people through the numerous charities that he participated in for several decades. We will miss Capt. Herb every single day for a very, very long time.

He truly was a fine and fun person. It has been years but I have many memories of Doug from whenRead More we both worked for the same Community Leadership Development Programs around the state. He usually preceded my sessions so I went early to hear him present, to see how people reacted to what he said. Then I would integrate some of the highlights into my sessions. He truly was DATA MAN, even more so that the Startrek character, Very sorry to hear about his death. He will truly be missed by many people who knew him directly or through his many guides and other publications.

Rebecca, this is a wonderful write-up about a truly wonderful man. His work was alwaysRead More thought-provoking, and brought light to some tough socioeconomic issues. He was also wickedly funny, and deeply caring, and we are so blessed to have known him and his family. Thank you so much for writing this.

Aralee was a gift to the universe. We are diminished by her death. Fly free dear friend.

Aralee was my greatest mentor, and hero. Looking at her was like looking at the person I can onlyRead More hope to become. If there are anyone's footsteps I want to walk in, it's hers. I am grief struck but know in my heart that she wouldn't want to be. I will try my very best to celebrate the spirit of her in this world till my dying day. Thank you for all that you are Aralee. You gave us a stage and we will continue to use it.

Jane, Evan & Todd, Joe & I will be traveling on March 16 and will miss the opportunity toRead More bid farewell to a dear member of the Athens family. Jim was a Renaissance man -- I don't say that lightly. His wide ranging interests in commerce, the arts, education, and, first and foremost, as a citizen of the world qualified him in every way. We will miss him.

I am so sorry for the devastating news of Jim McGowan's death. He will be missed by many, includingRead More myself. When I first met Jim I noticed right off the bat he had a unique sense of humor filled with laughter and joy. I pray for his family and friends and that Jim rest in peace. My condolences to Mr. L.M. Leathers III who were very close friends for several years. God blessed. Chief Kerry R. Copeland-USCG (retired)

This morning is one of my saddest ones, as I read about the sudden death of Jim McGown from Dr DarlRead More E. Snyder, now in California . Jim was considerably inspiring: always jovial, willing, and open hearted, Jim loved to speak fondly of his family which I visited in 2003. My strongest memory of Jim remains his commitment to send a monthly donation of US$100 for the entire year of 2002 to support “Africa’s Sustainable Development Council (ASUDEC), a nonprofit grassroots development organization that I was trying to establish in Burkina Faso. Adding to other supports, Jim’s thoughtful gesture has enabled ASUDEC to survive and to grow into a well respected Non Government Organization that is now supporting thousands of poor small holding households in 5 geographical regions of Burkina Faso, West Africa. On behalf of the Board of Directors, of all the ASUDEC personnel, and mostly in my personnel name, I want to acknowledge Jim’s great humanity and to express my profound condolences to his wife Jane Foster McGown and to their two sons Todd and Evan. God is witness and shall acknowledge his contribution to the making of a more enjoyable life. Salibo SOME, Salibo@asudec.org
