Family Offers Thanks for Outpouring of Support in Loss of Son in Crash

web posted November 2, 2011

Dear Editor,
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 Hilton 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 about money.
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
Tony Edwards
Calhoun County, Florida
