    Schawn Walthall and Stephen Hampton, I am so sorry for your loss. Please know you and your families are in my prayers. God bless you and may he give you peace. I;ve not see either of you guys for over 30 years now. I remember Schawn in the turbo-slob blasting down the highway, all while Steve was squatting ..probably over 800 lbs back then. I loved those days. Life moves entirely too fast. You both, I’m sure she’s very proud of. As I said before, you all are in my prayers.
