I was a truckers wife
My husband was an otr truck driver. He was at a rest area asleep in the sleeper berth of his truck. A car went airborne and crashed into the drivers side of the truck, killing him instantly they tell me.
The driver walked away with a laceration on his head.
He was 52yrs old. We would of been married 15yrs next month; now I'm a widow at 49. He also left behind a son and 2 young granddaughters. His mother just lost his dad to kidney disease 7months ago. Now she has a son to bury.
I used to get on to him about quitting smoking because I worried about him not being around to see his grandchildren grow up. Just like he used to say, if smoking won't get you something else will.
