My thoughts and prayers go out to the Truex family and friends! I spoke with Sonya during my last few years of 14 years while working at Mercer Landmark Propane Dept. I often thought about her and Mr. Truex after leaving my employee to return to college. I travel the back roads from Moulton to Shawnee to visit my mom or Lima and always passed their road. Just thought about them this past week on way to Lima. Sometimes there are those special people who touch our lives. My mom and I both graduated from Shawnee as Mrs. Truex and I had 20+ plus years of arthritis and knee issues so the PT in her knew when I don't fell well. Again my deepest sympathy to the family! Hugs to those who need one!
