As mentioned earlier, two Boy Scouts from Stevenson, AL, went down on TWA
Flight 800. Her is an update as printed in the obituaries of the Decatur Daily:
SCOTTSBORO- Funeral for Thomas Ralph Weatherby III, 13, of McMahan's Cove,
will be Sunday at 3:00 pm at Stevenson Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
He died Wednesday, July 17, 1996, in the crash of TWA Flight 800. He was
born Feb. 2, 1983, in Chattanooga, TN.
He was an eighth grader at Stevenson Middle School where he played football
and baseball. An outdoorsman and hunter, he was a member of the Beta Club
and Boy Scout Troop 230 and had just been inducted into the Order of the
Arrow and was working toward
becoming an Eagle Scout.
His mother and three others from Stevenson died on the crash. He is survived
by his father and one sister.
Although this has been a terrible loss, we can be thankful that the bodies
of Thomas and his mother have been recovered from the ocean. The other three
have not been recovered. Please continue to lift up these families in your
Ron Boyd, ASM
