The bigger than life images of Lamar 'Toe' Walker walking through the halls of Bishopville High school or creating terror in the minds of opponents on the football field are still as vivid in my mind today as they were over 48 years ago. I loved the big unassuming guy and am truly saddened that I have not seen him once in all those intervening years. I was so in hopes that he could have come to the Gathering of the Classes reunion this past July but it was not to be… maybe we will meet again on some distant Heavenly shore. Until that time, I’m am heartened to know that he will always have a special place in my memories as I’m sure he will have in yours.
