  1. Whit was one of my longtime trading buddies and a good friend. I will be attending his funeral service.

  2. Whit was not only a great guy, but a respected, hard-working, dedicated public servant. I have been honored to know him and all his family for most of my life and I know he will be greatly missed. Tracy and I are deeply saddened by his loss and will be keeping the family in our prayers during this difficult time.
