Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, BRIAN WADDELL who was born in Maryland on May 26, 1961 and passed away on July 09, 1980 at the age of 19. We will remember him forever. 

Brian did not die of any illness, his life was stolen ,by 2 girls who shot him and stole his van.
Back on July 9th '80 , Brain left home here, to look for
 a friend.
Earlier that same day ,his Dad and youngest brother, had gone fishing ,down to Rehobuth Md.
That left our 3rd born son, and myself, here at home ,, Getting out of bed the next day, I find out, that Brian didnt come home. I called the police and hospitals,  to no avail,we even ,went around to his freinds house, to see if he was there .His friend hadnt seen him .
When his Dad and brother, got home later that day, I told
 them that Brian hadn't come home last night . His Dad said,"" we saw his van in Rehobuth, but with traffic being so heavy, 
it wouldn't be easy, to turn around ,as they were pulling a 
boat also.""" We had to wait for 48hrs, before we could
 report him missing, as he had just turned 19 in May. When 
we did report him missing we were told that a lot of young
 men choose not to be found,, I denied that , 'cos Brian would
 never, just leave home without his guitar..
My husband and I, went down to Rehobuth ,and looked everywhere ,we could imagine .
Brians van was found, on the police record, in another state
 as being abandoned, and left burning, this was on about 
July 12th..THEN is was looked upon by the police that
 ther'ed been foul play ,so an all states bulletin went out for Brian.
Brian was found by railroad workers,lying along side of the railroad track. The temperatures were up in the 100's, He was found ou July 23rd, he'd been lying there since the 9th.
We'd put a reward out for any information about it . Two girls told the police,that 2 other girls were bragging,about
""wasting guy  and stealing his van'''''They were picked up 
by the police and charged. Neither one was found guilty of Murder, They've served their time and are out now ..BIG FACT ,,,,IT WAS THEIR GUN!!!!!!
Sincerely still Loving and Missing Brian...
GOD BLESS  all who have lost Loved Ones
