    Our sympathy to the family of Mr. Callaway. He would come to Capital Bank in White House while I was employed. We had such good conversations about our family, city and country. Such a nice gentleman. Most Sincerely

    Sincere condolences to Gordon’s family and friends….many of my memories from age 12 contain “the Callaway Boys”….sweet, funny, sometimes rowdy, but always loved that crew was! From this GC to that GC….love you Boy, and I know my Momma was standing in line to give you a big hug when you got to heaven!

    Beverly, I’m sorry to hear about Gordon. You both were so nice to me while working in WH. I pray for you, God’s peace and comfort during this sad time in your life. You have been strong and dedicated during this time with Gordon and your Mom. Keep smiling and keep that twinkle in your eye. No mischief there, right?

    Will always remember that Gomer Pyle smile on the tarmac at Bien Hoa when I saw GC’s glorious face…one I hadn’t seen since the day we graduated high school together. Hated leaving him there as I was departing and he was arriving. What a super friend…lover of life…sportsman…gentleman!

    We loved you, man!
