    Dear Ricky, Sorry, but I haven’t lived in Alexander County and didn’t ever get to know you, however, we did meet at Mildred Bebber Meadlock’s home in October last year when I was visiting from Oklahoma. I was raised in Ellendale Community, and I got to know our cousin, Benny, when he would come up for visits, from Kannapolis. He and my older brother, Bob Bebber, were big buddies, too big for me to tag along, but I did get to know your Dad well enough to know that he was such a nice, young fellow. He and I got together on the phone several times in recent years, and I had intended to visit him while I was home, but when I called, you and he had gone to the hospital to see your mother, Emo. I too, knew her from high school. Please pass along my heartfelt feelings to her. I send my sincere condolences to all of you, and God speed. Your distant cousin, Coy Bebber
