Wonderful Man and Wonderful School
The article about the Texas School for the Deaf (October 2008, “Texas School for the Deaf: Building Bridges”) was very informative and highlighted one of the wonderful special schools in our state. Thanks for informing the general public on the education of these deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
On page 10, there is a picture of a very special gentleman, a 1948 graduate of TSD, visiting with a current student. Lloyd Williams was a member of the Concan Church of Christ for many years. He was such an inspiration to all of us who knew him. He had a wonderful sense of humor. Lloyd traveled from his home in Concan to Austin twice monthly to preach at the Church of Christ for the hard of hearing. Lloyd died suddenly at his home on August 30, 2008. We miss him in our little community, but will always remember him. He is truly a testament to TSD.

Wolf Brand Chili Still a Standout
It’s too bad you didn’t mention Wolf Brand Chili in the October 2008 article “A Bowl of Red: Texas Chili as Hot as Ever.”
I still think it is the best-made chili, homemade or otherwise. I was disappointed when the big guys bought the company out and moved it out of Corsicana.
