NO how dare you assume I'm referring to my :bulldog3: just kidding the mouse on the computer kicked the bucket and last week and I only got around to replacing it tonite.

I have some sad news that I would liketo share with all my trucking friends out there. Mr. Clarence Garrett of Chickamauga died wendsday of an anurizum(?) Clarence was a very special friend to alot of folks and was a retired trucker who used to pull mobile homes and after retiring from the road , drove a van for ANGLE services transporting the elderly from home to various places such as shopping, the doctor, and so on. Clarence was 70 years old and was still going strong when he suddenly died this week. He was my friend and He and His son James "SPANKY" Garrett sold me my first truck and got me started in the biz as an owner operator. There was never a time when I spoke to Clarence that he didn't have a kind word or a new joke. He will be missed by all who knew him. GOD Bless you Mr. Garrett we love you.

P.S. Clarence and his wife Shirly were married for 51 years and you could tell they still loved each other very much.

Sorry to hear about your loss of a dear friend. A good friend of mine drives a van transporting the elderly, he's in his later 60's know, but an old school trucker from Oregon. His health is going down and I'm worried about him. Always hate to hear about a death especially of a good friend. Try to have a good one buddy.

Thanks noclue,the thing is Mr Garretts health was fine that's why it was such a shock to everyone. I think that if he could have chosen a way to go he would have chozen the anurizum but he loved his family so much I know he would have wanted to say good bye. I hope your friend's health improves and he enjoys life to it's fullest.
