Thank you ALL so much, for your appreciation of these simple songs from my heart, as I've lived this "Unsung HEROES Life"... as a mom of a wounded soldier since David enlisted in the Army several years ago ... and, have been so deeply moved & touched by having had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful military families, soldiers, veterans & HEROES!

Over the past several years, I've been SO blessed, by SO many wonderful folks. The comments, cards, letters, gifts and new friendships have just been overwhelming!

As Larry & I have performed all across America, it has only deepened our love for each other, our country, our service members & ALL those who serve & protect this nation and our freedoms.

Merry Christmas Susan, My Love.
I have not only been married to you for so long, but have been blessed to work with you on your projects, and hear you develop your music over the years. There are really no words to describe how priceless your music is, and one day, if Jesus tarries, your heart and love in song will go down in history as an un-found treasure that many have missed, because they are either too busy, or they refuse to let this wonderful music touch their hearts. The real truth is that you have touched the lives of countless people who on this side of Heaven, you may never realize that. My Love for you is endless, and unbounding!!! May God keep you and bless you always. Your Larry
Just wonderful, Susan. What a treasure your music is, and your page with these musical tributes to America's finest! My prayers for our soldiers and their families and my deepest regards to those who were lost and to their families. I am so sorry for such great losses. Thank you for your work, Susan. And my thanks to all of our soldiers who have served our country faithfully to defend it even when they didn't understand why they were fighting in seemingly senseless wars. My thanks to their families for the sacrifice for loving and supporting them. And to their children for being brave soldiers at home while waiting for their moms and dads to come home. Love and prayers, Cathy

Subject: Report that person to the local police and the FBI...immediately!

Clearly your music speaks for itself…..and that’s that!

What con? How can art be a con? How silly…….

Absolutely……..please put ALL my comments in your quest-book.

We are an open book, and, we always stand by our people, our service to our country, and doing right.

We have NO FEAR, and ,will stand all the way, with what is good and right!

It’s a pleasure………so go for it.

And yes, report that person to the local police, and, the FBI.

In America, to disagree is absolutely encouraged, and, applauded... but, to "harass" is criminal.

If they don’t like your music, they ought to
"change the channel"... not, harass you for it, that’s garbage!

I know, as a artist, it hurts…….normal criticism hurts, because the art is you, and, it’s hard when one, is so in touch, to take callous thoughtless criticism.

Worse, it hurts worse when it passes critic... into something like you describe…….

So I empathize in a big way……. As a businessman, we tend to be more thick skinned, so take a few words from an experienced person, who has been called every name in the book.

Stay focused, do the job, do good, and have faith…….the proof is always in you, and, you know who…….and that’s it.

Leadership is about staying the course in the face of being called names and worse…

Aware people... can see that, and, those lost ones... will never see it, until they open their mind, their eyes, and embrace good.

Of course, that does NOT mean that you don’t defend yourself when necessary – because you do, and, must - but it does mean that you must stay the course and do good because in the end, that’s the ONLY THING WE HAVE!

Believe me…….it’s all we have, and, I think you know what I mean……….

So, Kee

Subject: "I am Honored...you shared your writings with IWVPA website."

Dearest Susan,

This is absolutely terrible, and, I am shocked beyond comprehension!

I haven’t heard anything at all about the things you mention, and, wouldn’t take any notice if I had.

It seems that somebody with some axe to grind, for reasons only known to them,is targeting you.

You can be assured, that any request that I receive to remove your lyrics etc. (for any reason - except directly from you of course) from my website... will be ignored,

But, in the hope of being of assistance to you, I shall forward a copy of any such correspondence, that comes my way, to you, so you may be able to ascertain who sent it, and, take any action you deem necessary.

You may quote me... in your guest-book.

I am honoured, that you have shared your God given talent with me, and through me, the readers of the IWVPA website.

You have never asked anything from me, except the courtesy, of reading your works, to decide, if, I considered them worthy of including on my website.

I look forward to when this terrible persecution against you is put to rest so you can write and send more your wonderful and important veteran related writings for inclusion on the index I created for you on the IWVPA website at http://iwvpa.net/wisemansd/

My sincere regards, and, thanks to you; my prayers continue.

Please know that you are never far from my thoughts, and, are always in my prayers.

To have your wonderful writings included on my website is a great privilege and honour.

And you may quote me on that!

The Lord be with you Susan, and with Larry,

Please pass on my sincere regards to Larry, and remember that you, and, he are in my prayers always.

With love and friendship,

Tony Anthony W. Pahl - Webmaster

Subject: I will never back down from what is the right thing to do.

Susan,

No one has contacted me about you, and, if they did, I would tell them, what is on my website is my business.

Your music was given free of charge to me, and,
I have no idea, why in the world, anyone would do this to you.

There is always someone who is dragging others down.

I don't pay attention to accusations without proof and the proof has to be verifiable, not he said she said.

Your music will remain on my page and yes I am still willing to do your pages.

God Bless Gary

You sure can use it ...I said it, I meant it....you can quote what I say, I will never back down from what is the right thing to do.

Hi Susan...

I just want to say that I believe in what your are doing; I am SO proud of you, and as long as I breathe, I will be there for you.

I am honored to be your trumpet player.

I DO thnk everyone should know... that all... of that wonderful music that they are hearing, is written, recorded, and performed by you!
