1990 - 2011
We lost a member of the family on Saturday. Our faithful, trusty, full equipped Dodge Van was sold. It wasn't being driven (for a good 10 years now or so) and was taking up space in my parents driveway. It only had a little over 100k miles on it and drove great. It was selfish to keep her just for sentimental value...
I have many great memories in this van. Cross country drives. I remember watching a movie on the TV, turning on the "cinema" lights at night... Ski-trips... laying the seat down in the back into a bed so we could sleep on the way up to Seven Springs in PA. Youth temple trips. Nights out with friends before I had my license. The 4 hour drive to the beach with the family.
It was a sad day Saturday when my Dad signed the title over to the new buyers. We all had a moment of silence after she was gone... before my parents starting splitting up the money and talking about how they were going to spend it.
