After reading Johns post, I had wished I was closer in that I could buy the pump from them, but I don't get down that way and I don't have a need for another pump, so I dug thru my pockets and sure enough, I found a $100 bill left over from Iowa Gas last year! I sure hadn't found anything lately to invest it in, so I have chosen to send it to these people.
I have spoken with these people on the phone and Mr. Thurmond Bricker (pump owner) had purchased this pump some time ago as a memory of the Phillips 66 station he once operated. Its sad they have to sell it because of a medical emergency and I only hope they got plenty for it.
I would encourage any of you that have ever needed help in your life to send a little of your extra their way. Even a small amount can help them a lot. God bless any of you that choose to help! I truly believe they need it! Send me a PM for their mailing address.
Kevin I know you and I have had a lot in common, but I didn't know we thought that much alike. Kathy and I sent a check for $100 today as well.
I felt a connection right away since I have suffered from two strokes in the past three and a half years. In fact I am scheduled for an MRI later this week to look for additional events. I was lucky and mine were not as severe. I stopped going to Iowa Gas because of my strokes. I also sold 95% of my extensive petro collection, so believe me it changes your life.
I hope others will take the time to send even $10.
I have all of their information as well.
