Hello friends, family and strangers I just haven't met yet. My one daughter and her husband, Dawn M. Trim and Kevin A. Trim, from Alpena, MI, have been "over the road" truck drivers, since our son- in-law, Kevin, retired from spending years and years in the military. He served in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and many other countries. But they were so happy when he finally got to come home and they could work as truck drivers and make up for so many years apart. BUT then a tragic accident hit. Jan. 9, 2015, in a massive pile up on 1-94 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, while Kevin, was driving the truck to have repairs on it and traveling with just their trusty, truck dog, Grace, he was hit,  head on by another semi. Our precious Miss Grace, a pug that was their "fur baby" was killed. Our son-in-law, thank goodness survived, by the Grace of God, through that tangled mess.  They were packed and ready for their next run, thus almost everything they owned was packed in their sleeper and truck. Little was able to be recovered. Not even their precious, Grace. Now months of no income, healings, new everything, glasses to see, medications for their health, no belongings, no truck, now the stress and work has begun. I as their Momma am worried almost to the point of physical sickness. See, if you knew Dawn and Kevin, (Trim) like I do you would know they are the most giving, kind hearted people in the world. They are constantly giving to others they see in need across the United States. They have paid for down and out people to get groceries, taken homeless out to eat, bought gas to help a struggling Mother move her children to get a new start. My lists could go on and on, even though they would NEVER tell you how they "pass it forward" out of love in their hearts and their faith in their God who has given so abundantly to them. My request as their Momma, is a simple one. First and formost they need prayers, your warm thoughts but also they need to be able to eat, buy clothes to replace the only clothes they had on their backs, as the rest were all loaded and packed. They don't even have a coffee pot, way to cook, what we take for granted they have lost ALL!  I for one could not live without a regular pay check coming in for what might be months on end. If any part of their tragic story has touched your heart and you would feel the need to "pay some forward", I for one would be so grateful, would appreciate it SO much to know my children could have a fresh start. My wish would be after 30 some years in the military that many Vets would want to say, "we are here for you, Brother." And other organizations that help people start over after tragic accidents and events that happen to our fellow human beings, could contact them. Any help, suggestions, cards and many many prayers would be so overwhelming indeed.  My sincere thoughts, hugs and love go out to each and everyone reading this.  Thank you to everyone!
