    There are so many memories, similar to those I have read here, how much was given and the impact Dr. Grissom had on all of us. I do have a very special memory that shows Dr. Grissom’s sense of humor and willingness to entertain, I had taken over directing the show that drama and music students put together to welcome in the new Freshman class of 1971. Tradition was that aspects of university life were lampooned, and we had a very sentimental and saccharine number. I asked Coleen Grissom if she would make a cameo appearance and cross the stage scattering flowers. She processed, stately and calm and somber of face, carrying a basket and flinging flowers in all directions to rounds of applause and howls of laughter from the audience. There was no one like her. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
