At the time he was burned (May 18, 1970), Steve was 13 and I (his older sister) was 15. He was in the 7th grade and me a freshman in high school, both at James E. Holmes Jr. High School. Please know he didn't have a funeral, was cremated and yet he had many people who cared about him. Also, many did not see his obituary because of the day it came out and we heard from practically no one. I want his life to count for something, because he was so misunderstood and so messed up.
I truly believe he made things right with the Lord, accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, and we will be together again in heaven. Oh happy day!!
"I love you, Steve, with all my heart."

Jack Baker, Scoutmaster of Troop 15 at the First Baptist Church in Leaksville. Jack was an inspiration to many boys. Especially me. He was a family man of good moral character. He served as Scoutmaster of Troop 15 from 1950 to 1960. He then served as Chairman of the Dan River District, BSA. Jack was a man who made a difference and will always be remembered by the boys whose lives he impacted.

i love my memories of home. lately i have been thinking of my first teachers at Leaksville Graded. I loved them all. first was mr.newlin. a precious person who was always there. even through high school. if we could have teachers now like ms.moir, ms.swindell, ms ivey, ms royster, ms.holmes and ms.weatherly.they were the greatest.
My dad was Samuel W. Terry he was captured as part of the D Day (June 6, 1944) invasion while running communication cable in an area which was supposed to be secure. He spent 9 months in a German P.O.W. camp. He passed away December 26th 1976 (he was only 55). I would like everyone to give a lot of thought to what we were and are fighting for and realize that a lot of people have sacrificed for us to be here, my dad gave 9 months of his life, many gave more. I would appreciate any recognition you could give him.
"A Tribute to Mr. Ronald E Brown, Sr."
March 18, 1896 - March 6, 1977
He was my grandpa and probably the person whom I loved more than I have ever loved anyone else in my life. He was honest, hard-working, generous, and kind. If only more people were like him, this world would be a happier place.
"A Tribute to Pauline Wilson" "It's been 16 years since you passed, I think of you everyday. If I bothered the whole world, you were always happy to see me. You never believed unkind things, because you had the best in character. Your selflessness didn't seek recognition, for that, you deserve it all." I love you- your grandson, Steve
