Herbert W. "Bud" Hewit
Third Husband of Opal Flanders

Herb was cremated and his ashes scattered along the interstate highway which he drove his entire life as a trucker.
My Mother and Herb were married January 30, 1960, four months before the birth of my first child, Denise. It was Herb's wish to "make it legal" before the birth so he would be a 'Real Grandpa". And a "Real Grandpa" he was until the day he died. My Mother is now the victim of Dementia which has robbed her of most of her memories, however, she's still waiting for Grandpa to get in, off the road, after this last long trip.
"Hats off to the man who drives a truck.
He battles traffic, dust and muck.
He pushes through with heavy loads
No matter what or where the roads.
His life is one of sleepless nights;
Of facing thoughtless undimmed lights;
Of countless flats, of juggling spares,
Of changing tires with lighted flares,
Of loading produce, oil and freight
To haul away to some other state.
For on the road we've found you fair
And hope that some day you'll wind "up there".
And when you climb those golden stairs,
We hope you find no use for flares.
Just go to the gates -- and walk right through
And get that sleep that's long past due."
Cremated, Ashes scattered.
