  1. Mr. Causey was a man of intense moral courage and conviction. Discipline, honesty, loyalty, integrity, commitment to family (he considered WG his extended family) were his defining values. And he was interested as well as interesting. He had a young-minded spirit and intellectual curiosity that made him one of the great conversationalists I have known. His optimism was infectious. In his presence, one could feel everything getting a little better. He was generous with his time and his love. He had aspirations for all of us to be that way. After every conversation, every single one, he would remind me again: ” Don’t forget to hug the babies.” He always hugged his. My heart is broken for all who loved this great man.
