Rex, you had a heart of gold, and were so loved by many more than you realized. I kept your letters, picture, etc. and they mean so much to me. I am so blessed we were friends, I think of you so often and told my kids and tell my grandkids about you. You will be remembered always if I can help. You would be happy to know how often your name comes up when a bunch of us get together. Your sacrifice touched so many and the ripple felt through HHS when we heard started something. I was in touch with Dana, but haven't heard for a while and I was so proud of your mom being Gold Star Mother National President. She got to go to Nam. I hope you stood near her.

If it is true that you are never really gone as long as someone speaks your name, you will be around forever.

From a friend,
Connie Barbee
