I was born and raised in Weston. I now live in Orange Park, Florida. This Saturday proved to me what fine citizens live in Weston. I followed Facebook posts and shared with friends all over the United States and Canada the news of the funeral for Sgt. First Class C. J. Sadell. I am so proud of the citizens of this fine community for honoring this fallen solder and warding off the protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church. What a tribute to this young man who died fighting for our freedom. He paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Weston is truly "the heart of America". Thank you for your service Sgt. First Class C. J. Sadell. Debra (Scholz) Rainwater

I just read the article about how the town of Weston blocked Fred Phelps and his so called church from protesting a soldier’s funeral. I grew up in Kansas and not far from the town he operates in. He has been a pain in our back side for years and we find him a disgrace to us. I’m also a military wife, and hope if I ever have to lay my husband to rest that am in a community as strong and united as yours. Your community represents everything that is right with this country and why I am proud to be an American. Thank you all for protecting the loved ones of the Sgt. from the Phelps.
To the Sgt.’s family and friends, my heart goes out to you with my prayers. Thank you for the sacrifices you made with him over his career, I know there have been many.
Thank you all,

I COMMEND ALL OF THE FOLKS OF YOUR COMMUNITY FOR STANDING UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND DECENT. THIS GROUP IS NO MORE CHRISTIAN THAN BIN LADIN. THEY ARE TERRORISTS JUST LIKE HIM. MY FAMILY AND I WANT TO THANK SGT. FIRST CLASS C.J. AND HIS FAMILY FOR THEIR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY. THEY ARE TRUE AMERICANS.

First off: I hope this is published in your paper for all the citizens of Weston to see.

How uniquely American for a community to stand together to protect the memory and family of a slain soldier from the vile, wretched, despicable actions of a group of over the top religious fanatics.

I commend Rebecca Rooney and all the people who stood up and said, by their actions, that this is simply unacceptable behavior. And in so doing, you have renewed my faith in the American people and what we truly stand for. I am sure that I am not the only American that stands today, proud to know that you have accomplished something that is meaningful beyond a mere headline to a news story!

To the family of SFC C.J. Sadell: I lament the loss of your husband and father. He sounds like a man I would have been proud to soldier with. I understand your pain, anguish and suffering. I can think of one thing that may have meaning to you. When I was a young man, the pain of the Vietnam experience was overwhelming at times. But what I came to find over time was that; although the pain remained, it didn't hurt as much. I hope that, that time comes sooner to you than later. God Bless your husband and your family.

In closing, I would like to say that Weston is a long way from Massachusetts but if I am ever in your neck of the woods I WILL go out of my way to visit Weston: because it would be an Honor to step foot in your town!
