A Tribute to My Ole' Friend

Good-bye my ole' green friend and bus. He has taken us to many places over the last 12 years or so. Over hills and valleys, near the ocean blue and up mountain passes he took the 10 of us. He allowed us to visit many beautiful and awesome places of our country on vacations together as a family. He was the one that traveled the Kaysville streets to take kids to soccer practice and games, to cheer, to school and a variety of other activities including trips to the grocery store and carrying heavy loads. He was good like that. He set the example for other families showing how cool a van like he could be for them. We have notice an uprising of vans like my green friend in Kaysville and we know it's because they first saw him and saw his awesomeness and talents. He was the one people recognized first, friends and family knew when they saw him,  there were also members of the Shapiro family inside. We got many waves of hello from neighbors and friends when driving this van then any other vehicle. There was no doubt he stood out from the rest, the reason we will miss him the most. I hope you don't mind if I pay tribute. Because like pets, vehicles become family, at least it does in this family. It's now up to him to make other people happy and to enjoy his talents of carrying up to 11 people. New adventures are yours, you will be missed. So long good friend.

We have been lucky to begin a new adventure as well, we have recently bought a new friend, someone who will help us out for a few more years as our family dwindles, as children grow and move on. This new friend is the same age as our green friend but has a few extra talents like a CD player (I know that for some this is so yesterday, but, not for me). She will be a nice addition to the family, and we look forward to getting to know her as we did our old one. Welcome to the family!
