T. J. Bates – Memorial Service
Shortly after we moved to Seguin, T. J. was in failing health, so although my husband was acquainted with him, I did not know him. However, I know his widow Roslyn and have heard a great deal about what a great man he was and how his life positively impacted the lives of others.
T. J’s memorial service was a true tribute to a man of character who had a servant’s heart (with a wicked sense of humor) – and most definitely a Texas Aggie! This was an Aggie Memorial Service in every sense of the word!
Friends told Aggie stories. The church was crowded with ex-Aggies. Even Reverend Jim Price told a couple of Aggie jokes. What a celebration of T. J. Bates.
