The funeral of former Texas Governor Mark White is a much-needed, and for many of us, much-longed for return to the “Texas Way”… that is, setting political differences aside in honoring the man, the office he held, and the contribution he made over the course of his life to the Lone Star State.


It is no small thing, in this era of division and turmoil, to have members of legendary and competitive political families come together  for one of their own…a fellow Texan.  But that is the way of former President and (Texas Governor)  George W Bush and Luci Baines Johnson, daughter of former President Lyndon Johnson, who will join forces at Wednesday’s funeral to remember Mark White.

His loving wife Linda Gale is the strong First Lady she has always been in standing up, as her husband did, for what she feels is right.  And this is.
