Re­mem­ber­ing Briscoe

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Gov. Dolph Briscoe, be­low, the last gen­tle man and gen­tle­man gover­nor, has passed away.

My fa­ther, Charles Pur­nell, worked for the gover­nor and was al­ways in awe of the depth of Dolph and Janey’s part­ner­ship and with the in­tegrity with which they led their pub­lic and pri­vate lives. Both Briscoes were good friends to our fam­ily.

Texas has lost a real leg­end. Here’s to a life well-lived and a state well-served. Thank you, Gov. Briscoe, and thank you to your fam­ily for shar­ing you and Janey with the state. MiMi Pur­nell
