Good deed by an oil company
« on: September 15, 2010, 03:02:19 pm »
I have an employee whose wife is on the priority list for a liver transplant to be done in Phoenix, about a 10 hour drive from here.  She just got moved to the top of the list and has to be in Phoenix within 4 hours of a donor liver being available.  "Bob" was distraught because we have no real air service in this small town, but I suggested he call a family owned oil company  in a nearby town.  I know they have a plane and it rarely gets used(the owner travels by private helicopter mostly)  So he calls and they tell him no problem, free of charge they'll fly her to Phoenix.  They have 2 planes and 3 pilots, all he has to do is call 24/7 and they will get his wife to the hospital on time.  That's the beauty of small town living, even the rich folks (and they are mighty rich) help out strangers/neighbors.
Just wanted to rant about something positive for a change.

"but I suggested he call a family owned oil company"

  This is really what America is all about. Not the conglomerates but family owned. The "oil company" doesn't matter, just that's its a good deed by a company in America. May God bless, and do His will.
