Oh I am so glad that Crow's friends & school mates & fellow football players had the memorial when they did.

twinkles, I agree with you totally. My heart goes out to the Patterson Family, but I know that they will be alright because they seem to have a strong family. I'm so glad that Mrs. Patterson got to see the rock that memorialized her wonderful son. And as a parent of a LHS student, I will touch the rock as well and maybe Crow will give me some luck.

Thanks Bill Riggan and company for getting things done so Mrs. PAtterson was able to see this tribute before her passing.

To the Patterson-Pleasant's family~

My brother Paul and I (Bettie) send our sincerest condolences. As part of our extended family when we were kids, Mrs. Pleasants always had a friendly smile and a warm welcome for us. We will always be appreciative of that.

As well, it was wonderful to participate in the memorial for my friend Crow and to see Mrs. Pleasant's angelic smile when she touched "The Rock."

Please know that no matter how far or long that we may be apart, we still remember our roots in Louisburg and the wonderful people such as Mrs. Pleasants that made our childhood memorable.

Do not hesitate to contact either of us if we can be of comfort or assistance.

Sincerely,

Bettie Lavender Williams
