My wife and I were in a store here in Wilmington several months ago shopping for supplies when we came upon a lady we did not know who was talking on her cell phone. It was obvious from the tone of her voice and the expression on her face that something was very wrong. Suddenly the conversation ended and she began sobbing. Tears were flowing down her cheeks. For this to happen in such a public place, it was obvious that she had heard something very difficult to handle. We went over to her, told her who we were, and asked if there was something we could do to help.

She was proud that Mary Carolyn and I, Sandy Lynn, made good grades, won awards, were praised by teachers and did not fall prey to unladylike temptations. My brother Jimmy Doyle was wild as a buck rabbit, but that’s another story for another day.
