Letter to the Editor


Dear Editor,


I apologize for not speaking to your reporter yesterday. Things are still a little raw. I would appreciate if you would let everyone know that we appreciate the outpouring of sympathies and love we have received from Ole Miss and Oxford for John and Sarah. 

I would like everyone to know that all of my children have been happiest at Ole Miss. Growing up in the hustle and bustle, and stand-offishness of the East Coast, Ole Miss showed them how total strangers can come together to be a unique family. They felt it and knew it was a special place.

There will be a viewing at Wallers Funeral Home from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Monday Nov. 5 and the Funeral Mass will be held at St. John’s Catholic Church on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m.  


Again please give our thanks to every one.

Bill Wheat

Father of John and Sarah
