Wow Dee Squared! That's some kind of story.

I've been around a while. I've had some close friends who've lost siblings and children in various ways. One thing has always stood out to me about the folks that suffer these difficulties. It leaves something on their psyche that most of us never have had to deal with. They become some of the finest people you could ever know. There's a strength to their character that is undeniable. They also bear a wound that is easily disturbed. Sometimes even an innocent remark made by someone will cause them pain without the person who made the comment even realizing how or why it might have such an effect on them.

Your son had an unfortunate experience at TMC, and I am sorry about that. I know you understand that a bad trainer doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of the company or the job. Bad trainers, like bad employees of any sort, eventually get flushed out of the system. In fact my roommate when I was in orientation at Western Express had come from TMC. He had been a trainer forthem, but for some reason they let him go. The folks at TMC are very patriotic and love thus country. I doubt that trainer will have a lengthy career over there.

I'm really glad to hear Joe has got some things going his way. He sounds like a great guy with a strong work ethic and a bright future.
