He was my fathers half-brother. This man was one of nineteen children Fathered by T.K. Moss, of Rockingham NC, and he was the youngest boy. I was three years older than him and we laughed about him being my uncle. He was a fine young man from a poor family with a lot of pride. He will be missed by all of us forever, and his youthful death for a meaningless cause will sadden us for the rest of our lives. May he rest in peace in the arms of our GOD. Wayne Moss, 143 Rudy Lane, Rockingham, NC, 28379.
