Re: Aug. 1 article, “Goodbye to a Texas literary legend, environmental giant.”
I first met John Graves when my family was traveling through Glen Rose and we concocted the idea we wanted to meet him. Finding his address we knocked on the door and he opened it and told us to come on in — complete strangers. We talked about all sorts of things, while he served us tea and cookies — a consummate gentleman. He is gone now, but I will retain the memories of a kind man who took the time to welcome strangers into his home and made them feel comfortable and important. What a classy guy.
