Thanks for sharing that Ed, and sorry to hear about your Dad. I never realized who LittleE4AU was until now. BTW- I grew up on the Bibb/Shelby line.
Your dad sounds like the coolest dude ever and I wish I could have shared an AU game with him. I bet he could carry on one hell of a conversation! War Eagle.
He was....and yes he could. Especially about Auburn football and baseball.

Thanks How4AU....You knew a good man if you knew my dad. There's probably a lot of people on this board who knew dad. Hope they may have reconized his photos..He's been around AU football a long time..

what a great story and the photos are amazing. sorry for your loss and WDE.
Sorry for your loss. great story.
Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful story about two AUsome Auburn men. Your father was a fine example of what Auburn men truly are all about and I am sure he will be missed greatly by all who knew him. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Awesome story, thanks for sharing. God bless you and your family.
About 15 years ago my grandfather passed away. He had been one of Meagher's Marauders '36-'38, played in the Bacardi Bowl in Havana against Villanova, and played in the first Blue-Gray game. He went into the army after graduation and retired a Colonel. He loved Auburn, was heavily involved in Auburn football and sent four sons to Auburn. I kept my composure pretty well until I walked into the funeral home and saw a six foot tall Orange and Blue bouquet of flowers formed into an AU sent by the university. That is when my composure broke, and I am tearing up thinking about it even now.
LittleE4AU, I am sorry for your loss, but I assure you that the memory of that letter will be a large part of you for the rest of your life.
ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
Love the pics of your Dad. Chizik can spot a good man anywhere.
I had many of those Blue Cowboy Hats with the orange A and orange bands. I thought they were so kool.
Little E I am only about 20 miles south of Brent so if that is where you live now come on down to my establishment and I can always go for some Auburn talk any Friday and Saturday Night. God Bless Your Family. Nothing better than talking about Auburn University.
I want to deliver my condolences and thank you for sharing this story of two Auburn men. This is an example of what makes the Auburn Family great.
BTW, when I was in school I always wore a coat and time to the game.
I grew up in Brent and knew Mr. E. well. Great guy and great AU supporter. He graciously let me use his scholorship tics. on occasion. I was very sorry to hear of his passing.
