It is with a heavy heart that I post this afternoon.
Lady Bird Johnson has just passed away at 4:18 PM CST at her home in Austin. Her tireless efforts to rid the roadside of billboards and plant wildflowers were not in vain.
Today, the roads in Texas are happier because she has made sure that they are filled with Blue Bonnets and countless other native wildflowers that herald the arrival of Spring each and every year.
Our house will be sad and, if possible, we will attend her memorial in the Capital Rotunda in Austin.
God Speed Lady Bird.
