TLC #91: November 3, 2006
Dear Hearts & Gentle
Life is not always happy, and the news is not
always good, not even in Lexington. The 21-year-old grandson of Bobby and
Alvera Dothage Johnson (both class of 1956) died on October 24 as the result
of injuries he suffered in an accident on September 26.
The accomplished young man was in college at
NWMS in Maryville. Clint was
driving a backhoe at work when the accident occurred. The resultant burns
were more than a healthy young body could overcome. The outpouring of sympathy
to the family was enormous, as you can imagine. Alvera asked me to print the
Words cannot express how much your thoughts and
prayers were appreciated during the loss of our grandson Clint. There's peace in
knowing so many thoughtful people were praying for our family.
Thank you again for caring and supporting our
family with your kind words and prayers, cards, gifts, etc. Clint was a
beautiful child and we'll forever love and miss him.
Bob & Alvera
I'll write again soon with news of the old
hometown and the usual silliness. Till then I remain
Your devoted scribe
