Dear Mr. Velez, List and Errol Bruce-Knapp,

T'were I, there would be no doubt in my mind about who would be
taken. Any father who would react in that manner is not a

Any father who would do that to his son is a failure as a father
as well as a failure as a man. Having observed my son for 59
years, had he a child, he too would react similarly to myself.

If that father remembered what he did, rather than be relieved,
he should be ashamed.

I've seen several UFOs and would rather not speak about it. I
have also seen my son suffer a torture very few would be able to
endure without losing his mind. Yet, thanks to that person, Mr.
Budd Hopkins, he was made well in a day.
