My cousins and I cherish our childhood memories of Earl Gibson and visiting his family on their farm in Allen County, KY. It was nice to visit with him at The White House. Its comforting to know hes in his heavenly home and healthy again.

There'll never be another Mr. Pitchford. Nearly 25 years later, his story about taking out Hitler with a pocketknife still comes up! My dad actually had him for a teacher as well, in Scottsville, KY back in the late 50's or early 60's... a local legend who will be missed!
