tornado cemetery

I’d like to say a very heartfelt “thank you” to someone.

I went to Florence Cemetery (on Dec. 18) to check on some graves. When I got there, I found that my son’s headstone had been turned over in the tornado. A young man from Dixie Electric helped put the headstone back in place. I told him thank you, but I’m not sure he understood how much it actually meant to me.

To that young man, I would like to express my gratitude again. You made what was a traumatic experience much easier. You helped set things right in my world and you will never know how much it meant to me. You are a shining example of what every young man should be.
