Editor, the Advocate:
Thank you for the wonderful tribute to E.T. Summers Jr. that appeared in Sunday's Advocate. If ever there was an example of the best of America, it was found in E.T. He seemed to live by the philosophy, "God first, family second, community third," but what made him so special to many of us was that we were made to feel like part of his "family second."
I was the wife of an officer at his beloved TrustTexas Bank, and E.T.'s kind and encouraging words always made us spouses feel like our role was important to the bank. He did that for everyone, from the senior officers to the newest employees and their families. He was a father figure to all of us.
E.T. is one of those special individuals whose life will be celebrated and remembered for years to come. We will truly miss him.
