On the road...

Tom - One last drive..

"Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings"

I first met Tom in 2010 in orientation at a company I worked 6 years at. Tom started driving in the 70's and drove till nearly the day he passed away. He was one those people that worked where ever he was needed. If he didn't know the job, he'd learn it. I knew him as a trainer, teacher, driver...  Last time I saw him about a month ago at a customer in Oregon, we shot the breeze, told tall tales and..   A truckers trucker - always with a smile, a joke, a laugh and just living life... 

Tom, I have read it is a long mountain grade up above those clouds, just jam those gears but don't crash the gates doing 98... I'm sure he'll open them up for you and let you through..
