    January 02 2013 Dear Mr.Blacksher and Family I am so sorry to have just heard the news of your loss. I have good memories of the old days when I used to fly, “little Billy”, as I used to refer to him, back and forth to school in Charlottesville. I know that my parents keep in touch with you. They are out of town, so I would like to extend their condolences as well. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. God bless, David Brown

    January 18 2013 Hello Brother, I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for coming into my somewhat strange, but typical situation for you, dream. It was a little chaotic but fun, and it was great to see and hear you. I know you’re enjoying being with Mom, and I hope you like your crystal cross. You will be loved always, and you are greatly missed.

    January 28 2013 Well little brother, it was one month ago tonight that your suffering ended and you found peace. Though we miss you so very much, Dad more so than he is willing to admit, I can’t help but be happy for you that you are no longer in pain and that you are there with Mom to keep her company….I know that she is glad too. I want you to know that you’re thought of daily, and we love you very much.

    February 19 2013 Hello Brother, I think about you so often, and once again, a member of our family has left this life to join you and Mom. Uncle Jay left us on February 11th to be up there with you and Mom; one year from the day of Mom’s funeral with weather identical to hers on his funeral date on Valentine’s day. It makes me wonder what you all talk about, and how you all are. You are very much missed, and we love you very much!!!!

    Hello little brother, it’s awfully hard today to send to you this greeting on your 52nd birthday. Can’t pick up the phone and call you or to your front door race; for if it were to open I wouldn’t see your face. Can’t bring to you a birthday.cake, ( or lemon with a candle), but I still send you birthday wishes on this day so hard to handle. It’s better to imagine in the land of joy and light, you’ll celebrate with everyone with candles burning bright. With Mom, Grandpa, all our Grandmas, Uncle Richie and Uncle Jay too; dearest brother Billy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!
