At a towing company here there was a terrible accident. The newspaper said it was a front end loader and pickup, someone else said it was a tow truck & front end loader...but anyway 2 employees of a towing company here were trying to work on a vehicle (pickup or truck) that was attached to and held up by the front end loader. Well, it fell and killed one man and sent another employee to hospital in critical condition. The man was only 39.
Today i was going to Walmart and saw a police car block
traffic at a corner for a funeral procession so I pulled over and stopped with
everyone else for the funeral cars to pass. I was a few cars back from a corner
where the procession turned. I
just cried when it became obvious whose funeral procession it was.
First was a police car escort, then the hearse, then the family limo and
then.... what must have been every tow truck in town, washed and
polished like a new penny, truck after truck after truck .... huge tow
trucks and smaller ones ... came around that corner, then the cars with
the other mourners. I thought our tow truck people must be a pretty special
bunch to do this. It was just so touching to see this company's
competition show respect that way and I just sat there and cried.
