Saying Goodbye to a Faithful Friend

This little white truck got all 3 of my children through high school driving. It moved them and their stuff to various new dwellings over the past 23 years. When one of our cars has broken down, it has not only towed them to safety, but filled in as transportation backup. Has gotten me to work during many a snow storm. It's been my garage sale and Home Depot buddy. Today I sold our little friend to a mechanic who loves to tinker and will give it the retirement it deserves. In deep appreciation for all it's year's of faithful service.
