really, if anyone hears from Wylie let me know. Last I heard from him he had been in the hospital due to a mental breakdown I think. He said he was in a deep depression and Now I have basically been trying to get a hold of him ever since. his phone does not work, i tried Facebook. nothing.

sincerely,
Shane Brown
