BROCKWAY, Pa. -- A little girl who wrote inspirational letters to Trooper Brad Wilson after he was shot last fall got the chance to meet him Friday.

Madison Marzullo is a 9-year-old who wrote five letters since Wilson was shot, including one for Christmas that was published in the Courier Express.

In her last letter, she invited Wilson to her July Fourth party, and to her surprise he showed up.

"I told him that I hope he gets well soon and that I wanted him to come here," Madison said.

Madison calls him her hero, but she didn't realize that after he received the letters, he felt the same about her.

"They were an inspiration to me to keep going and not give up," Wilson said.

Wilson said he wouldn't miss her party for the world and her letters helped him keep going.

Madison said hearing the feedback from Wilson was "pretty cool."
