Not a day goes by you are not in my thoughts. You are the best brother a girl could have. Thanks for the help when Charlie was ill. I know it sounds corny but I could feel you with me all the way.

Hi, as you know Daddy passed away on April 6th of 2003, it was sad, he had a good life though. 83 - not bad eh? Mom is fine, and me ... well, we were married on your day ... May 10th 2003 ... David and I had a beautiful wedding as you know, you were right there beside us with daddy and all our other guests from heaven along with David's dad Lee. I have not met him, yet David says I am a lot like his dad. Cool, I will meet him some day when we will all be together again. Save us a spot. We love you and miss you. Tell daddy to keep the beer on ice!!! Love Ya'll, your little sis E'de Hewitt Wilson

I just wanted you to know I visit both sites for you. As you already know, I get up early on my days off so I can come visit you. It's quiet, and I can shed my tears for you. The world is a mess as you know, please say extra prayers for us we need all we can get! Maybe some day we can all live in peace and there will be no more wars. Amen. I love you! your baby sis!

I knew Brian for only one short year when he and I went to the same high school. We were in a car wreck together in 1965 - we both walked away unhurt. I was in South Vietnam when I heard about Brian. I remember him as one of the most intelligent people I ever met. I think of him often.
