Letter: Keep on truckin'

April 16, 2014 

On March 12, we reported our beloved service truck stolen from our ranch.

Explanation of beloved:

w She was new in 1961 -- a rare treat for wheat farmers.

w Every single kid in our families learned how to drive in her.

w Over five decades, she has been revamped and repurposed and has always served us faithfully.

Law enforcement, families, friends and community people who did not know us watched for her and called us with tips and sightings.

Thanks to all these caring individuals, our wonderful truck was found and returned to us.

Our profound appreciation to all involved for your help. "Ol' Green" is home and working as we speak. As she has done for half of a century.
