Family Offers Thanks for Outpouring of Support in Loss of Son in Crash
web posted November 2, 2011
As most of you are aware by now the events that occured in Calhoun
County Florida on highway 69 will forever change the lives of the
Edwards family, Hilton family, Wenzel family, as well as everyone who
knew John Hilton and myself and Melinda.
I just wanted to take this time to update everyone of you in South
Carolina as to exactly what happened and our current condition.
As you are aware John
was ejected from the van and was killed instantly more than
likely because of not wearing a seat belt. Myself and Melinda were sent
to Talahassee Florida Memorial Hospital trama center where I was
released two days later with massive bruises and various pains. Melinda
suffered a broken arm, cracked neck and fractures to her pelvis and was
released almost a week and a half ago. Melindas condition is getting
better daily and she will require at least three to six months rehab
but should recover well in time.
Lossing a son is never easy and if were not for our strong Christian
faith and the overwelming support network here in the state of Florida
and through out the Country we would not be where we are today. We give
God the glory for the huge outpouring of love and can never say thank
you enough to all of you for your cards, letters, phone calls and
expressions of love.
We are however, not out of the woods yet and ask that all of you
continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers daily. Being a former
Strom Thurmond Rebel I have learned to face adversity and can assure
you we will be fine with all of your support and most of all God.
We wish everyone the best in Edgefield County and leaving the area was
not easy for me to do but I could not turn down a chance to do a job
where I am in charge and in time finally face a day with no worries
As for the record in closing I have not been charged with any traffic
violation for this and the case is still under investigation and will
take several months to determine the final outcome and there maybe
charges facing both of us.
God bless Edgefield County
