Guns in schools is always a touchy subject, and of course it was newsworthy when a Camden Middle School student recently was apprehended at school with a loaded .38 caliber revolver as well as a box cutter. We have all read too many incidents of horrific school shootings across the country, so parents and other citizens are sensitive to security in schools. Local law enforcement authorities say school administrators handled the situation well and praised the school's staff, headed by principal Byron Johnson, for doing "a great job."
We wish to express our gratitude to the community, schools, law enforcement, emergency and fire departments, the church community and friends of Rob Evans. Words cannot describe how much we appreciate your kindness and sympathy during our recent loss. All of you reached out to us in many different ways and demonstrated kindness that will not be forgotten. Especially meaningful were the stories you shared with us about Rob and how he touched your lives in some way.
