Thankyou Rex.

We have, in our mind's eye, a tendency to romanticize the past. Life was a dream and childhood, idyllic. We had safe streets and stickball, bobby socks and records, Lassie and The Lone Ranger, and of course, we had Boomtown!

Our childhoods were surely not all as good as we see them in our memories. Families and children had problems, just as they do today. Back then, it seems though, that people didn't talk about those problems as they do so freely now. There were children living in poverty then, too, and alcoholism and abuse, and there were broken homes, like mine.

Mr. Trailer was a man much-blessed by fortune, but in humility, for every blessing in his life, he gave a hundred-fold back to the world. With his great talents, and handsome face, he might have become a big Hollywood movie star. But, instead, Rex saw the importance of giving to children. He was drawn to entertaining and teaching kids, and in return, we were all drawn to Rex. Something in children senses goodness and trustworthiness in others. No matter the troubles we faced as children, Rex was always there for us.
We knew him well, we knew he loved us, so we loved him.
We always will.
So long, Mr. Trailer.

Rex, you will be greatly missed by many, many people that you made happy here on earth. I am sure your love, Cindy, has welcomed you with open arms and a loving embrace. You were patient, considerate and loving during a very trying time...never without a positive comment and a reassuring smile. Rex was a kind and positive man not only for the "public eye", but also behind the scenes at home. God be with you both and to Jillian, Gerry and John.

Dear Rex,I am listening to your music at the moment; good to hear that strong voice, again. The lyrics to your cover of the 'Last Roundup' are appropriate at this time for the journey you are on. As you ended your letters in recent years, so will I. Rex, I appreciate you, your friend...

Rex was one of a kind. A gentle soul, who loved everyone and everyone loved him. I know I will miss him very much. His favorite bird was a cardinal, now whenever I see one I will remember him with fondness. Sympathy to his Daughter, Jillian and his family
