martinsburg@herald-mail.com One of the numerous photographs of Terry Lee Walker Jr. taped to his parents' refrigerator stood out from the rest. Taken less than a week before Terry died in a head-on collision on W.Va. 9 last summer, the picture was smaller than many others. It showed Terry cooly leaning against the side of a building, his head slightly turned away, his characteristic smile absent. As she looked at the picture, Terry's mother, Margaret, also momentarily lost her characteristic smile.
