I remember when I was growing up, my family would be driving around town running errands or going out to church when I would see a giant black funeral Hurst driving through an intersection. The light would turn green for us but we would just sit and wait. I would ask why, and the answer I got was so that all the cars following the funeral procession could stay together and as a sign of respect to the person who just passed away. This blew my mind at a young age. Seeing how important somebody was to sometimes hundreds of cars full of people. I thought that the amount of respect given was incredible. Not only do fallen police officers and soldiers get a heart warming funeral. This Reddit user recently shared photos of hundreds of FedEx drivers who had commemorated a fallen employee. They rounded up about 100 trucks to surprise his family with a FedEx funeral procession. What a great gift of respect to give to their fellow friend/co-worker’s family.
We rounded up all the trucks in Pittsburgh at the airport.
They all headed on the highway, eventually taking over the highway.
This FedEx funeral procession was all for their fallen comrade, Mickey.
Here they are at the funeral to surprise Mickey’s family. Everyone was in tears at this point.
His co-worked said, “Thanks for being an outstanding person and making an impact on so many lives. You will never be forgotten. FedEx, there is nothing like it!” Can you believe that all of those kind people took time out of their days to help show love and respect to their friend and his family? Mickey’s family must have been honored to see such a proud display of FedEx employees paying their respects. The FedEx funeral procession reminded Mickey’s family that he was an important man who was loved by many.
