This week has been a sad time for me. On Wednesday night a friend of mine committed suicide. He was 50. On Saturday another friend of mine got killed when a crop sprayer and him in his pickup met at an intersection on a country road. The tractor with the sprayer didn't stop for a stop sign. My friend drove under the sprayer and got killed instantly. He was 63 and left a wife and 2 children in their twenties. They were both from a town of 700 people so the whole town is in shock. I think everybody is in too much of a hurry and all of the farming equipment is getting too big.
