Martinsville boy killed in fraternity house fire was son of circuit court judge

The Martinsville Bulletin has this account of the services for Howard Stone, who died at age 19 on campus at the University of Mississippi at the start of his sophomore year.

I can't imagine it.

The first time I came home from college, I took a Trailways bus from Charlottesville (where first years could not have cars) and my dad met at the bus station in Abingdon and gave me a big hug when I stepped out onto the pavement, and I wondered what was the big deal.
