sad time

bengardeningJuly 3, 2012

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.

Oh wow, that's a big hit in a small town. I'm so sorry for your loss BG. And yes, I think farm equipment is far too big for the 2-lane, country roads.

I am very sorry for your sadness and loss. No excuse for not stopping at the stop sign no matter what vehicle you are in.

Ohhhh! How awful! I hope the town can come together and BE THERE for the families of these two men, and for one another.
