Marvin Earl’s Pride & Joy Marvin loved flying, and built the plane in the forefront from a kit. He also owned the plane in the background. The plane in front was the one he crashed on Father’s Day, not long after this picture was taken. He tried to fly out of a field near our home, and didn’t have enough room to get the altitude he needed. The plane burst into flames upon crashing, and he was burned over 95% of his body. He survived for three days at the Chapel Hill Burn Center.

Richard Earl Eubanks From baby to teenager to young man to soldier and then a Dad and Granddad too. Seems impossible that time has whisked by and my baby boy is a fine man. I am so proud of all he has become even with all the trials of life he has endured.
