My mother told me of the passing of Pup McCarty this afternoon.   One of my favorite pictures taken of me when I was a baby was taken in Lee and Pup’s back yard.  That picture is in my room.

Lale and I visited their home in Merigold a few years ago and Lee asked me if I was Waxhaw’s brother. He then went upstairs to pull out an Episcopal Mitre Shell (below) and told me that all Episcopalians that pass through his doors receive one.
