I don't know if you or any of your brothers and sisters will remember me or of us coming from Maumee many times to
visit you and your family.
I can remember coming to your house with my family to visit and playing with you and your
brother and sisters. I believe that I may have have even met Davis or David on one of those visits. I think your house was
on Main St. not far from the old high school in Wellington. I can remember seeing the pictures of Davis and David in their
U.S. Marine dress blues on either the top of a piano or a shelf in your home.
As I was looking at and reading the web page on Davis I noted the part on the model cars. I can remember seeing many
of them displayed when I was at your house. I haven't been back to Wellington for many years now. I do recall that Davis'
name is on a stone memorial on the town square in Wellington. (I can remember going to the town square to attend some public
auctions as a little boy when I lived there.)
I went to Davis' grave at the cemetary to pay my respects the last time I was there which was in 1986. I can remember
coming home from school when we lived in Maumee and my older sister Sandy crying and Evelyn told me what had happened to Davis.
I didn't attend Davis' funeral but I'm certain that Evelyn and my father did.
I came upon your web site thru viewing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall web site. I looked up Davis's name and read
the comments that were posted to it and saw the web page address. I'm now living and teaching college in Canberra, Australia.
My wife is from Saigon, Viet Nam originally and her sister is married to a Vietnamese man who grew up in Quang Nam province.
I have talked to them them about Davis at times. As I said earlier, I don't know if you or any of your siblings remember me
or my brother, sister, step brothers/step sisters, and half sisters (Kelly and Kathi) but I wanted to let you know what a
wonderful web site and tribute you have in honoring the memory of Davis. I sent the web page adress to my older brother Doug
yesterday also. I received a reply from him this morning. He was very impressed with it and said that it brought tears to
his eyes. He said that he would send the web page address to our sister Connie also.
In closing, I want to let you know that my family also remembers Davis and that he and his memory lives on in our hearts
as he does in yours. Please feel free to share this letter with your family and tell them hello from me.
