Lynchburg: Paying Our Respects To Strelie

In all of my visits home to Lynchburg, Va., over the past few years, I've wanted to visit the gravesite of my dear Carlton Candler, who died Jan. 6, 2008. At last, this year, we made it happen. On Friday, Donna Mae, Trixmoose and J.T., all part of Strele's longtime inner circle, made our way to Bedford, where he is buried beside his fabulous mamer Mildred.Of course, what's a visit to a cemetery without a little madness and mayhem... Trix's maiden name is, uh, Howell...Poor Fred... laid to rest to forever be known as a truck driver. Geez.The Stiff family? Oh, that's just too good...
