WHAT DO YOU DO UP IN HEAVEN?

fishing

Dear Dad,

A lot of time has past and gone since you left this earth. I know you are happy but I was just wondering Dad, “What do you do up in Heaven?”

As I sit here I think back and I remember the days gone by and the long, lonely nights spent just thinking of how you would drive that “ole semi truck” day after day night after night. You were always in a hurry Dad. You were always wanting to get to your destination on time to deliver the load and always making sure there was another to pick up and drop off at the next point.

Is that what you do up in Heaven Dad?

Can you tell me what it is like driving a  truck up in Heaven Dad?

Are the streets paved with gold like they say?

Do the sun’s rays dance on the streets and make them sparkle?

They say you can  actually see the sun rays dancing on the pavement as you drive down Heaven’s streets.

They say the clouds are always bursting with tiny showers of brilliantly gleaming stars to always shine a light for all truckers that deliver loads up in Heaven.

Is it true Dad?

Is there no special time to deliver a load?  Is there always another load waiting?

Is it really like they say it is up in Heaven Dad?

I can’t help but wonder Dad, is time just a thing of the past now that you have arrived up in Heaven?   Are you still in a hurry Dad?

They say we get to do great and wonderful things up in Heaven!

I hope it is all they say it is Dad.

I hope you are as happy as I dream you to be because here on earth, time seems to have come to a standstill since you left. This world is an empty place without you Dad!  I still miss your smile, your laughter, all the good times we had together. So many times I ask myself why you left this earth in such a hurry!    Why was there no warning sign!     Why?

So many times my mind drifts back to the day you left this earth. So many painful memories of events that led up to the horrible accident that left the whole town in tears! So many people who told the stories of  how courageous you were when they seen you trying  so hard to stop your truck from hitting people as you went through the parking lot. But you knew it was not possible because the brakes would not work! In my mind I can still see you wondering what to do. I can see you trying to make the truck stop. I know your decision to swerve the truck and let it go over that cliff was the only thing left to do just to keep from hitting that bus load of children. In everyone’s eyes, and even mine Dad, you are a hero! I know you did the right thing.  Heaven received a brave angel that day! But here on earth I sure do miss you Dad! There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t remember something you taught me, or something funny you had to say. You always had that half way smile on your face and that special grin. When I close my eyes  I see you just as if you are still here, but I know it is just a dream.

Since you have left there has always been so many unanswered questions in my mind Dad. Did you ever think the Air Brake Treadle Valve would quit working like it did?

How there was no warning that it was going to malfunction like it did? I often ask myself why it had to be you Dad, that was taken from this earth, but I guess  Heaven needed you too!

Since you have left  I try everyday to bring awareness of the Air Brake Treadle Valve Problem to the attention of the news media, but no one wants to help! I have talked to Senators and the Congress people and they never respond. I guess they are too busy to worry about people dying on the roads and highways down here on earth. I have talked to the NHTSA and they sent a letter saying at this time it is not important enough to look into. So many times I have talked to FMCSA and they say they have more important things to do than to look at how the Air Brake Treadle Valve is causing accidents and endangering everyone’s safety on the roads and highways. I have also talked to the NHTSB and they say it is not their department. It is so upsetting to know that a problem as dangerous as the Air Brake Treadle Valve is being cast aside and not important enough for anyone to look into.  Here on earth Dad there is pain and destruction, so much greed and corruption! And we wonder why lives are being lost! So Dad will you please do me a favor? Will you please ask God to send me a message to show me how to help others so they don’t have to lose  their father or mother due to the Air Brake Treadle Valve Problem.

I know I am asking a lot for people to take time and look at what is really causing Buses and Trucks to not have brakes that work right when they need them to. I wish there was a way to make everyone see that there is a major problem here!

I just hope no more children have to die or their mothers or their fathers due to the Air Brake Treadle Valve Problem. I pray that no more children have to grow up in this world with out their parents because of the Air Brake Treadle Valve.10313608_319442631564233_2262349163968072700_n

Well that’s all I have to say for now Dad.

I hope the angels are flying beside you Dad as you drive down Heaven’s streets paved with gold. A smile always comes across my face when I think of how happy you must be up in Heaven.   I can just see you now, sitting in the driver’s seat of that “ole semi truck,” and that halfway smile on your face as the angels lift you up and soar through the Heavens. You always had that special grin Dad.  I know you are truly happy!

Until we meet again,

Your Son

I AM SORRY!

I AM SORRY !

I am Sorry!  That the people who can help stop the Treadle Valve Problem will Not!

I am Sorry!  That the Government Agencies who say they care about all people
on the Roads and Highways do not care about the Treadle Valve Problem that is causing major accidents throughout the country on the roads and highways everyday.

I am Sorry!  That the Government Agencies who are to secure the safety of all the
People on the roads and highways are not smart enough to understand the dangers of the Treadle Valve that endangers ever one that travels down the roads and highways.

I am Sorry!  For all the commercial drivers who lost their life because the Treadle
Valve failed to work!

I am Sorry!  For all the passengers in buses that were injured or lost their life due to
the Treadle Valve  that stopped working!

I am Sorry! For all the people who have lost their life or has been injured when a commercial
vehicle impacted their vehicle due to the Treadle Valve Problem.

I am Sorry! That the inspectors that could find the truth of the accident when
It is the Treadle Valve Problem does not go the extra mile to determine the real cause!

I am Sorry! For over eight years I have been working on stopping the Treadle
Valve Problem but not one government office has cared enough to stand with me in order to complete a mission that is so important to saving lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am Sorry! Today the treadle valve air brake problem is still causing Accidents and still causing death and injury to people on the roads and Highways!

I am Sorry! To all the Government Offices, Congress, Senators, FMCSA, NHTSA,
NHTSB, and any other safety Department that has to do with
Safety on the roads and highways to inform you THAT I AM NOT STOPPING UNTIL THE TREADLE VALVE AIR BRAKE PROBLEM IS FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS A MATTER OF FACT WE HAVE A BRAND NEW PROGRAM COMING OUT SOON TO HELP BRING AWARENESS TO THE TREADLE VALVE PROBLEM !!!!!!!!!!!

May God bless the children that ride in our vehicles and on our School buses everyday that are being put in harm’s way! As you may recall, earlier this year I received a letter from NHTSA informing me that they had more important issues to deal with than the Treadle Valve Problem and that they did not see a need for an investigation at this time! I can’t think of anything that is more important than someone’s life! It saddens me to think that there are so many people out there that are keeping a blind eye to one of the most dangerous problems effecting everyone’s safety on our roads and highways.  What is it going to take to get everyone to see how dangerous this problem really is!  What if….think for just a moment….what if there is an accident and you find out that the Treadle Valve was the reason that you lost someone who is so precious to you and you were told that there were more important issues that had to be dealt with than the Treadle Valve……please stand by me now before it is too late and let’s put an end to the Treadle Valve Accidents!  I don’t want to see anyone else lose their life or the life of a loved one just because no one will listen!!!!!

LETTER TO FMCSA/NHTSA/NHTSB

10313608_319442631564233_2262349163968072700_n

DOES IT TAKE A CELEBRITY TO GET INJURED OR KILLED BEFORE SOMEONE TAKES NOTICE OF THE TREADLE VALVE AIR BRAKE PROBLEM!

I STARTED CONTACTING EACH GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT OVER EIGHT YEARS AGO AND AS OF TODAY NOT ONE DEPARTMENT HAS HELPED TO STOP THE TREADLE VALVE AIR BRAKE PROBLEM THAT IS CAUSING ACCIDENTS ON THE ROADS AND HIGHWAYS. ALL I EVERY GET FROM TALKING TO ONE OF THE GOVERNMENT OFFICES IS “WE WILL LOOK INTO THIS OR WE WILL CONTACT YOU BACK OR IT WILL TAKE TIME TO LOOK INTO THE PROBLEM.” THE PROBLEM IS, NO ONE EVER CONTACTS YOU BACK UNTIL YOU SHOW UP AT ONE OF THE SEMINARS OR BOOTHS AT MATS AND ASK WAY WILL YOU NOT HELP? IN FEBRUARY I DID RECEIVE A LETTER FROM THE NHTSA SAYING AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN STARTING AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE TREADLE VALVE PROBLEM.

 

1. I ASK YOU FMCSA, NHTSA, NHTSB WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET HELP TO STOP CAUSING ACCIDENTS ON THE ROADS AND HIGHWAYS?

2. HOW MANY ACCIDENTS ON THE ROADS AND HIGHWAYS DO YOU NEED TO START AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE TREADLE VALVE PROBLEM?

WHY WILL YOU NOT HAVE YOUR EXPERTS SIT DOWN AT THE TABLE WITH ME SO I CAN EXPLAIN WHY AND HOW THE PROBLEM IS SO DANGEROUS?

FMCSA, YOU TOLD ME AT MATS THAT AT THIS TIME YOU HAVE MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES THAN TO DEAL WITH THE TREADLE VALVE AIR BRAKE PROBLEM!

NHTSA, NHTSB, FMCSA, OR ANY OTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICE OVER ACCIDENTS.

1.I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO GET THE ATTENTION OF ONE OF THE GOVERNMENT OFFICES TO HELP?

2.IS EIGHT YEARS OF CONTACTING YOU AND ASKING YOU TO SEE THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM THAT IS CAUSING ACCIDENTS EVERY DAY ON THE ROADS AND HIGHWAYS NOT AN IMPORTANT ENOUGH ISSUE TO LOOK AT?

 

IS MORE DEATHS AND ACCIDENTS THAN THE GM IGNITION SWITCH RECALL THAT JUST CAME TO THE PUBLIC NOTICE NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE OF A MAJOR PROBLEM?

HOW MANY MORE DEATHS ARE YOU GOING TO LET HAPPEN BEFORE YOU LOOK INTO THE PROBLEM?

 

WITH THE RECALLS STARTING IN THE 1970’S AND STILL GOING ON TODAY IN EVERY MFG. OF SEMI TRUCKS AND SOME MODELS OF BUSES THAT TRAVEL DOWN THE ROADS AND HIGHWAYS EVERY DAY NOT A BIG ENOUGH ISSUE TO LOOK AT? WHY CAN’T YOU AT LEAST TAKE THE TIME TO GIVE SOMEONE THE CHANCE TO SHOW YOU THE INFORMATION ON HOW DANGEROUS THE PROBLEM REALLY IS? REALLY? DO YOU NOT HAVE THE TIME TO LISTEN?

FMCSA IS THIS YOUR PRIMARY MISSION?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s primary mission is to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.

THIS IS ON YOUR FMCSA WEB PAGE, IS THIS NOT YOUR MISSION?

IF IT IS THEN WHY ARE YOU NOT WORRIED ABOUT WHAT IS CAUSING ACCIDENTS?

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED ANY MORE INFORMATION ON THE TREADLE VALVE PROBLEM!

MOMMA WHY DID GOD TAKE MY DADDY?

I was at a truck stop in Missouri on I.H.55 just south of I.H.57, when I ran into an old trucker friend of mind, Old Corkey. It sure was good to see the old friend of mine. Well we went in and sat down and begin to talk about old times. How we both missed old fat boy and the good times we had with him. How we could still hear him talk as if he was right there with us today. How we all sure missed the tomatoes that his dad use to raise. Corkey ask if I was still trying to stop the air brake problem that had taken the lives of so many bus and truck drivers. I said I guess I am just too stubborn to stop. I’ve been doing it now going on nine years. Sure hope I have saved the life of a trucker or two. I told my friend Corkey, just the other day I got a call from a lady thanking me for all the hard work I have done to try to bring awareness of the Treadle Valve problems that have caused so many accidents. I could tell what she said to me came straight from the heart. It went something like this!

Dear Allan, I’d like to thank you for what you’re doing to stop another child from having to ask the question my little boy has ask so many times. It’s hard to answer when you don’t know how to ease the child’s heart from hurting. I try to comfort him the best I can but his mind still has no answers when his heart is so empty and his soul feels so lost of the love one he needs so much. A mother searches for the right words to say when her child is hurting inside. How can I answer his question when I wonder what the answer to the question is myself sometime. I often wonder, “Why did God take Kevin away?” And every night I pray no other child has to ask such a painful question, “Why did God take my Daddy!”

You see, the Father of this little boy was riding in a fire truck one day when the Treadle Valve failed. The fire truck was going down a hill and coming to a T intersection. The treadle valve failed and the brakes quit working! The fire truck then went through the brick gate and into a school filled with children. The father passed away and three other firefighters were hurt that day. The rest is history, the story is old news, and fades away and is forgotten by everyone except the little boy who has to grow up with out a father. He is left to try to deal with the pain of having no one to play baseball with or go to the football games with or to help him through life as he grows up!

“Yeah Corkey, if I can just save one child so they can grow up with their parents to see them through life it will be all worth it.” My prayers won’t be answered until the Government agrees to start an investigation on the problem. When the Treadle Valve problem that is causing so many accidents is stopped from causing so many drivers to have accidents on the roads and highways. To stop from all people from being in danger on the roads and highways due to the treadle problem including little children. Only then will my prayers be answered. “Corkey do you have any ideal how it is to hit a car when you’re grossing 80,000 lbs. and hit a vehicle with a person in it? Well my friend let me tell you this much, you do not want to know that feeling. Trust me!”

I watched as Corkey sat in thought for a minute. “What can I do to HELP?” said Corkey. Well to get started we need all the people we can get to help get an investigation started due to the treadle valve problem. If everyone would get together and call their local senators office and let them know that this needs to be done maybe someone would listen. Maybe just maybe we could save the lives of so many people who are traveling on our roads and highways. One thing is for sure it is going to take everyone!

PLEASE EVERYONE! PICK UP YOUR PHONES! DIAL THOSE NUMBERS! STAND BY ME AND HELP ME STOP ACCIDENTS FROM HAPPENING ON OUR ROADS AND HIGHWAYS. HELP SAVE THE LIFE OF SOMEONE THAT YOU LOVE! IT’S TIME TO STOP THE TREADLE VALVE PROBLEM! IT’S TIME FOR AN INVESTIGATION!!

TRUCKERS’ GOOD TIMES!

 

You know sometimes as I’m driving down these old roads and highways I forget to give thanks of how lucky I am to still be here and to be able to enjoy the beautiful sights this old world allows me to see. As I sit in my old truck looking out the windshield: I finally realize how truly blessed I am!

You know sometimes a trucker gets so tied up in the C.B. talk about how FMCSA is always after the truck driver. And then when a trucker gets a chance they look on FaceBook at what is happening and begins to send messages to all their trucker friends. Most the time it is to inform another trucker about a new law or a new way to cut a driver’s pay. Or something that just happened to another driver or their truck. Then there is always the talk about the price of diesel. I guess truck drivers have complained since the beginning of driving, kind of like a way of life out here on the road. That’s easy to do when you stay so many hours away from home and loved ones.

ONCE IN A WHILE IT’S TIME TO STOP AND THANK GOD FOR THE GRATEFULNESS AND ALL THE JOY IN BEING A TRUCK DRIVER!

How for each and everyday you still travel up and down these old roads and see the scenery out your front “windshield to the world.” How many times you weren’t paying attention and nothing happened . All the slick roads and wet highways you been thru. Even thou there might have been a lot of close calls you still made it through. When that car load of hasty drivers cut you off you swerved just in time to stop the accident. How some times you’re so sick you could not even hold your head up. You still made it to drop the load and reload and go down the road again.

THEN THERE’S THOSE BRAGGING RIGHTS OF HOW EVERY TRUCKER INSIDE OF THE TRUCK IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT AND A LITTLE UNIQUE!

IT’S THE BEAUTY OF THE NIGHT TIME WHEN YOUR COMING INTO A TOWN AND SEE ALL THE PEOPLE ENJOYING THEMSELVES AND TRAVELING ABOUT THAT MAKES IT ALL WORTH THE TRIP!

And yet there will always come a sad day for all old truckers for they know one day it will come to an end. But here will always be the precious memories and good times they will take with them and talk about forever in their journey as a TRUCKER!

THANK GOD FOR THE TRUCKERS WITH OUT THEM THERE WOULD BE NO WAY OF LIFE AS WE KNOW IT TODAY!

SEE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU EAT ,OR WEAR, OR USE EVERYDAY IS BROUGHT BY A TRUCKER!

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO BE A TRUCKER! THANKS TO ALL THE TRUCKERS THAT TRAVEL DOWN OUR HIGHWAYS AND ROADS EVERYDAY FOR THEIR HARD WORK, DEDICATION, AND SACRIFICES THAT THEY MAKE TO ENSURE THAT EVERYTHING WE NEED IS BROUGHT TO US AND MAY GOD BLESS ALL YOUR FAMILIES!
