    Lana Wilson bradburry was a dear friend of mine and if it wasn’t for Wilson allowing me to ride to Waco high I don’t know what I would have done. Also teaching me how to water ski although l was trying to turn and ran into the pier. My skis hit the pier so I wasn’t hurt. Thank you Lana for being my friend. Luv you always. Sue
