CLOSE TO HOME — Anna Heisse Edwards (front) was joined at The Wall That Heals in Paducah, Ky., Thursday by (continuing counter clockwise) Debra Severns, David Severns (partially hidden) and Magnolia Place Assisted Living Center program director Rana Buchanan in watching Joe Kimbel of Mayfield, Ky., make a rubbing for Ms. Edwards of her father’s name. Capt. Edwin Heisse of Rives was killed in the Vietnam War in 1971 when she was only 101⁄2 years old. His name is one of nine Obion Countians on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., and on the traveling replica. (See additional images from the visit on Page 18.)
