Sometime around 1970 I was the photographer of the Wilkes Community College annual and editor of their newspaper. I wrote a tribute to a successful community college coach who was a legend in high school basketball at North Wilkes High School in Hays, NC. His name was Joe Linney, and, I must admit, over the years since that time I have lost sight of him and really know nothing of his biography since 1971.
I do know this however, that I recollected a quote by Johnny Cash regarding on certain album by Bob Dylan(Nashville Skyline), both favorites of mine.
Elizabeth Edwards almost exactly fit those words of tribute that I believe are forever etched into my brain.
Johnny Cash's tribute was as follows, excepting for some editing due to gender and time.
"And their words, works, and songs are like bright, flashes of light from a brilliant erupting cone, so where are your mountains to match some men."
