Remembering Evergreen - Memories Letters

Bert St. Romain   Evergreen Memories  -  February 13, 2010

Ed, thank you for bringing up Ernest Galland's name.  Here is a memory story for you.

Sometime between 1955 and 1960 I was with Raytheon Company.  I was making a business call on Dow Chemical Co in Freeport, TX.  I was staying at the Dow Inn, a beautiful hotel owned by Dow. I was in my room scanning the telephone directory and I just happened to open the page to Galland, Ernest.  I called the number and, lo and behold, it was indeed my old friend from Evergreen. 

Ernest came right over and we spent an hour or so talking.  Since I received your letter, I searched my memory and tried to put together what I remember from almost 60 years in the past.  Ernest told me about his family and about his job.  One thing I do remember is that he told me that his job was involved with Ethylene Glychol. 

Next time you see Ernest, ask him if he remembers our visit and if I am correct in my recollection of our short meeting of almost 60 years ago.  Ernest and Dicken Bordelon, Jr. were close friends after both of them were discharged from the Navy after WWII.  I knew them both very well.

Keep well, Ed, and thanks for making it possible for so many of us "old timers" to be able to reach out and grab a lttle piece of "days gone by", if only to make us feel special again.

Pax, Bert
