I told my mom I found her journal, and asked her why she stopped keeping a journal after I was born. She said, “I found happiness. I finally had something amazing to live for.” MMT

The CFO and VP of sales happened to be talking in the parking lot at the time and walked over and helped the truck driver pick up all of the containers and cans. MMT
