Dear Boliviabella Readers, I was 11 years old when President Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas, and the impact of that Assassination went beyond the boundaries of the United States of America, and the shock and the wave of this assasination of President
John Fitzgearld Kennedy went into everyone's home and around the World. So at 11 years old I went into action in 1964 trying to located the Very Rev. Oscar L. Huber, and for several months I would get my letter back from the postal service that reads,"Return to Sender" unable to deliver, until I had recieved a break and one of my letter's that was forwarded from the Holy Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas were the Secret Service had moved him from the Holy Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas to ST. Catherine Laboure Parish in Saint Louis, Missouri.
For years Rev. Oscar L. Huber and I had become pen-pals writing back and fourth regarding the Assassination of President John Fitzgearld Kennedy, and during this time frame I was in disagreement regarding the fact that I was telling Very Rev. Oscar L. Huber there was more then "ONE" Assassin in Dallas, Texas that had taken the life of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and of course the Very Rev. Oscar L. Huber would write back to me and tell me," I could be mistaken, but I am one of these persons who must have proof beyond doubt before I can believe that more than three shots were fired," and of course our communication between each other through letters increased during the years, until January of 1975, when my close friend the Very Rev. Oscar L. Huber had passed away.
In 1976 House of Representative's was looking into the fact that there was more then "One" Assassin involved in the assasination of President John F. Kennedy, and I would like to state for the record regarding one of his letters, that reads, " My dear friend inclosed documents you can read just what I saw and did when I gave the Last Rites to the President, John F. Kennedy. He certainly was apparently dead - I saw no sign of life in him. His forehead was covered with blood- his eyes were closed as if he were asleeep- I did not see any bullet holes in his face or in his forehead, as fare as I could see. When I returned from the hospital to the Rectory, I heard that three shots were fired from a window, an upper window, in the Book Depository building. Later three empty shells were found at this window and a gun bearing Oswald's finger prints. It was some time after the assassination before I had heard that shots from other directions were supposed to have been fired. This will have to be proven to me beyond doubt before I will accept it. I hope I am not afending you by disagreeing with you. I am far from being perfect- I could be mistaken, but I am one of these persons who must have proof beyond doubt before I can believe that more than three shots were fired. My dear young man, I hope I haven't offended you by writing as I did, but I wrote just what I think happened. I am glad to see the interest you are taking in what took place on that fatal day. I wish I could give you a pefect account but that is impossible. If you every get to St. Louis, please come to visit me, I would like to get acquainted with you. The Very Rev. Oscar L. Huber, C.M.
It was in 1975, I was going to fly down to Saint Louis, Missouri and for the first time to visit with him, when I had call the Vincentian Fathers and was told of his passing.
It is also important to note on these letters the Very Rev. Oscar L. Huber- remarks (In his book: "The Day Kennedy was shot, Mr. Bishop says I told the reporters the President was unconscious. I DID NOT. Neither did I hear anyone in the Emergency room say; "Please pray, Father". He also writes that I saw a large part of the back of the President's head missing. I did not see this.)
In December of 1999, I had sent faxed copies of some of my letter's to Archivist Gary Mack to the Dallas, Museum Dealey Plaza, and his remark's were, "Dear Rex: Thank very much for sending these interesting pages and letters from and about Rev. Oscar Huber. We would like to have the orignals in our COLLECTION.
