    "Stevie" Wilson. That was what we called him when he came to Stovall School as the "new kid in town" in the fifth grade. I can remember his first day at Stovall. It was rare for us to have new kids in our class, so his arrival was exciting. With that effervescent personality of his, he wasn't the "new" kid very long. He fit right in and to those who knew him, it will be no surprise to hear that he was most entertaining. He even gave me a funny nickname. During High School and for awhile thereafter, we had some great group camping trips at the lake. I have a good photo of Stevie from one of those trips where he was standing over a charcoal grill in the hot, southern, summer heat cooking chicken with his favorite BBQ sauce Carolina Treet. I have such fond memories of those days. We had such good times. My condolences to the family for your loss. Stevie's untimely passing is difficult to understand. I hope that in time your memories will be sweet and not sad as I am sure they are now. May the Lord comfort you during this time of sadness as only he can.
