enjoyed your photos of your trip. Thanks
02 May 1998
We were excited to see my mother's picture (Dorothy) on the Internet!!
03 May 1998
I was just surfing the web when I found Yall. Its great to see you both doing so well.
Your Cactus Hill site is great. We think of you often as if not for you two Charlotte and
I would have never met. Someday soon we will have to play catch up.
13 May 1998
Nice page guys!!!!
27 May 1998
Looking Great! As August 1 rolls near, I'll pass the site along to some others. I've
got any idea for a store, and will discuss it off-line. I like the monthly rates, they
Talk with you soon - HEY to you both!

I surfed in from Jonathon Cainers astrology page. I am a keen crafter, but live in
Australia so would find it difficult to join your mall. Your home, family and pets are
lovely and you've done a great job with your pages. Good luck with the craft mall. I'll be
popping back to check it out :)))))))
Read the new Annie news. Sorry to hear there is no progress. Maybe the news stories and
letter writing campaign will help stir some interest. I hope so. Take care.
I really like your web page. And after taking the "tour" I really wish I had
bought "Making the Bed" way back when I had the chance. It is still my very
favorite and is still in my mind's eye (after seeing it so often for almost 5 years --
hanging in your office). Thanks for including it on your web page; now I can look at it
again and again. I passed your other business card on like I said I would. So nice to see
you again! Karen

Cactus Hill has been a delightful experience. Chris and Ed you are two wonderful people
who deserve Gods best. I feel as though I know Annie because of you two. There is good
that comes out of bad things. You have made us better people because of Cactus Hill and we
love you for it. I wish you the best and I will be back again.

Hi ! nice site, i'm the owner of MARIO's CACTI web site, visit me and enjoy on the
world of cacti.... Bye Mario
This is my work e-mail. I just had a few minutes to visit your site and wish I could
stay longer! As soon as we get back into our home we intend to go on line and will advise
of our personal address. Until then, how was Hawaii??!!
The Hawaii tour was beautiful. It makes me want to go back - I've been to Honolulu and
Kauai. I can't wait to get on line at home so Steve can enjoy the pictures, too. Take

Wish I could have fit into your suitcase and gone with you.
Loved your site and trip to Maui. Found you with a search on the net. We were there the
same time you were. We were in Maui 2/20-2/27 1999. Also attended the Old Lahaina Luau. We
are sending our daughter and new husband to Maui the 23rd of May. They will get a lot of
good from the pictures on your website. I put up some travel stuff on our website while we
were on vacation. You can see my pics at http://www.newvision-travel.com
Just grab the Hawaii Vacation link. Again thankyou for a wonderful site.
I am Susan Stahl's sister from Denver, Colorado and she told me about your site and I
wanted to visit. I met Ed once when I was in Texas a helping Susan and Steve move. I
enjoyed the story from Annie and my prayers are with you in your search for answers. Be
strong. I will continue to visit your site from time to time. Take care.

I was researching some information about our honeymoon to Saxman Village in Alaska when
your pics came up. Thanks for reminding us of such a wonderful place. I will visit again
some time for facts that we may have forgotten.
Jerry And Ginny Scalzi
This is really great. We appreciate the tour. It makes us anxious to go to Alaska which
we will do in the near future. (Next Month)
this was a very interesting website that I came across accidentally. I will however will bookmark for future shopping needs and other items. Thanks

I really enjoyed the tour. My daughter died in a

now raising three beautiful children. The little girl was only 14 months when Cindy died. The boy that hit her was a drunk driver. The angels always are watching over us. Thank you for the tour.

Ed and Chris - you may remember me from the Texas Chili Parlor, the dude with the long ponytail - I moved to California in 2001 (Monterey Bay area) and in this time had no idea of the tragedy that occurred. My heart goes out to the both of you and praises for your taking such positive action in the face of adversity.

The "Austin Chronicle" just listed your Web page for the wonderful Texas
Chili Parlor, so y'all can look forward to a whole lot more Web traffic. I
was so happy to find your TCP page, because I introduced several European
friends to the Chili Parlor, which they loved immediately-- one Englishman rates
his travel from London to the US on how soon he can be seated at one of their
tables after his plane pushes back from the gate at Gatwick or Heathrow. Now I
have a Web address we can all reminisce over.
I went on to look at some of the rest of your site and was greatly touched
and saddened to read about your
daughter. My best friend was murdered, too, and I know that the pain never
goes away. How may I support your effort against the killer's parole, in
writing? (I will be organizing similarly in 2013, as possible parole for my best
friend's murderer will loom then.) You have my deepest sympathy.

I've been wanting to look through your website, and finally had a moment to
spend some time looking through it, reading it, and taking it all in.... thank
you so much for sharing it with me! the website and the story told within
it is really incredible... your family has experienced such incredible love,
contagious happiness and laughter, and such tragic pain... my deepest sympathies
for annie, and everyone she touched (and continues to touch through your
website).... you are wonderful people with a truly beautiful family....i wish you
much happiness, peace, and love for many years to come.
