Some Top Ladies Pay Tribute to the Top Lady: Lady Bird

The Tyler Top Ladies of Distinction held a tribute ceremony Friday afternoon at Texas College.  Each member placed a rose inside a vase to honor Lady Bird Johnson, known for her love of flowers. Members say Lady Bird inspired the formation of their organization some 43 years ago after one of its founders attended a luncheon put on by the then First Lady.

"Her ideas were ones that you could put into action and for an organization to exist and still pay tribute to her after all of these years 43 years,  I think is a very defining contribution to make to society," said Ira Jean Henry, President of the Top Ladies of Distinction, Rose City Chapter.

The organization focuses on America's youth and beautification, two subjects Lady Bird Johnson felt very strongly about.
