    One of my very best friends bday is march 13 and she is one of the biggest willy fans ever. This would be the best thanks for being one of my best friends for over 20 some years and bday presents ever. Thanks

  9. Omg I have loved willie Nelson since I was old enough to turn on the old stereo had all his albums. He is an icon that will never be replaced! I have seen all his movies hundreds of times. The old west is in my heart and I know in my before life I was right beside all the guys and gal a that made the west what it was. Pick me pick me!

  10. Willie gave my brother and I a place to stay when I was 19 and my brother was 17. We lived out in Spicewood at the time with our Uncle. I worked at the Circle K and got fired. John D’Angelo found out about it and gave me a job. I ended up working on the ranch when they were building the Montessori School on their property. I worked for John for about a year and met Willie numerous times. When Willie found out that my brother and I were living in our car, he told us to move onto the ranch. My brother and I were allowed to sleep in the movie set, shower with a make shift shower they put up for us, and were even fed by Willie and Annie.I moved away and had a pretty rough couple of years, but I got it together at 27 when I joined the Navy. Now I am 38 and married with 3 adopted children. I have done so much since I knew Willie and never forgot that he let us stay on the ranch. I have always wanted to tell him how my life turned out, but have never been given the chance. His generosity was something that I will never forget and I have always paid it forward with Willie in mind. I was a 19 year old kid that he had never met, but he took me under his wing and made sure I was safe. He did not have to do that and I will always be grateful. Even if you do not choose me for this, please relay the message to him if you can. I have told this story before and been called a liar, but if you have ever spent any time around Willie you know this to be true.

  11. Love. You. Williey. I. Have. Loved. Your. Music. For. A. Long. Time. I. Would. Love. To. Go. To. See. You. It. Is. On. My. Bucket. List. To. See. You. I. Have. Never. Been. To. One. Of. Your. Concerns. Never. Had. The. Money. To. Go. Love. You. Williey. Your. Biggest. Fan. Christine

  12. I would love to take my wife of 13 years lynn,,, iv been trying to run my own business for years now and I was never able to even take her on a honey moon after we got married,,, I know she would just love it .

  13. Have followed your music all my life. Put you in juke boxes all over the country. Now I am 65 and would love to see you in person won more time.

  49. My husband and I have always been great fans. Two years ago I had a heart attack found out I had PAD and coronary artery disease. I had to have five stents.I had a mental break down. One year and two days later my husband that had never missed a day of work in twentyeight years came home and said somethings wrong. Went to doctor he was diagnosed with dermatomyositis witch is a very rare disease. A muscle and skin biopsy was done. The dermatologist said you have cancer you need to get checked so he did and had esophagus cancer,did the treatment had a biopsy was done it came back the doctor said he didn’t have cancer,so had to do a PET scan to make sure it was all gone. We new the Lord had given him a miracle. A week later the doctor call wanted to see him. I ask could I just stop by and get results nurse said no doctor wanted to see him. On February the 6 he got the news he has mets. The hardest part the doctor said he only had a year to live. How can a man that has never misses a day of work have such a terrible disease, that can kill you that fast. Larry has alot of depression to be able to attend this event would be a great treat to see one of his heros before he dies. Please consider him. Thank you

    Hi Willie, The wife and I met you 20 some odd years ago somewhere north of Boston, you kissed my wifes cheek, and admired her red hair. I showed you a picture of you and I doing an ad for Cueuvo gold tequila, at least it looked like us but it was just a stand up ad you did that I stood next to and got the picture taken,looked real, tricked you and alot of other people over the years.I hope your in good health and live to play at your hundreth birhday party. I grew up in Boston, but now due to family mishaps Im stuck in Connecticut. Im the guy with the American flag shirt you signed a few times. Now like the man your friend John met one day Im a worried man. My son was kidnapped and now he,s 26. he won,t talk to me cause he thinks I abandoned him, but its not true, his mother just wanted to hurt me as much as she could and she did. I,ve been in pain and heartache for too many years to count. Yours, mostly when it comes down to music has helped me thru the darkness, and hopefully someday I,ll see the light too. I know your a busy man, but could you help me reunite wth my son and turn my life around. I know he would trust you. If ya ever have a chance give me a call @ (860) 204-0380, Thanks for all the messages in your music, they help alot. If ya can write me a boat song, or a fishing song, either one, you do like fishing don,t ya

  159. John & Kathy Nichols June 19, 2014 at 5:26 PM

    Guess it just wasn,t meant to be, signed A Worried Man

  160. Chris & Angelique Williams June 23, 2014 at 12:39 PM

    Just wanted to say Howdy to Willie. We are new to the neighborhood, and love this peaceful area. I am a Cherokee from Oklahoma, and my wife, Angelique is a Dutch/English immigrant from Zimbabwe (old Southern Rhodesia). I guess if you chucked a rock of your porch towards the river, it would most likely end up in our yard!

    Howdy neighbor!

    Chris & Angelique Williams
