You were the first wife of flowers and beauty.
I wrote to Mrs. Johnson quite a few years back to thank her for one contribution, her beautification of America's highways. I was so touched by the beautiful bluebells blooming across country on one driving trip and was then educated to the fact that they were there because of "Ladybird." This beauty remains a good memory.
I'm grateful for all Lady Bird Johnson has done for America, and I know she will be missed but never forgotten
It looks like the former first lady on Friday will "lie in repose" at the LBJ Library and Museum in Austin, Texas, where the public can pay respects. A private funeral on Saturday in Austin will be followed on Sunday by private burial at the Johnson family cemetery in Stonewall, Texas.
I remember how elegant she was on November 22, 1963. I was only ten years old at the time and I remember how she stood by her husband as he addressed the nation. She will be missed.
This tribute is dedicated to one of the greatest American heroes of our time. Please join me in celebrating the life of Lady Bird Johnson by leaving your memories and thoughts for us all to cherish.
