THANK YOU 10.20.12

Mother Lucile Lang and family would like to thank Elohim, Muskogee citizens and surrounding areas for their show of appreciation and support for Mother Lang Day in the state of Oklahoma. May God bless each and everyone of you.

Mother Lang and family

ON OCT. 5, my husband and I left Tulsa to spend the weekend in Wilburton. We were driving down to get my youngest sister out of her situation and to spend some time with my family there. My husband loaded up all of her stuff on Sunday and we set back out to Tulsa.

At some point, over the weekend, we noticed that someone had taken my money out of my purse. We leave my mother’s and put what little money I found in the gas tank. As we pull into Muskogee we stop at the Kum and Go on Highway 69 to use the facilities. After speaking with the young lady attendant we were feeling quite anxious about being able to make it home.

As we sat in the truck counting whatever change we could find, a gentleman walks by and says that we could really use a tarp, at which point my husband says what we need is gas money to get our family home. So here I am debating begging for money to get my family home, but don't want to be one “of those people” that you know don't really have a relative in the hospital they need to get to. But you see I always give money to those people, because even if some are being dishonest, there is that chance they are not, there is that chance they were just like me and just want to get their family home.

The young man had managed to generate $20 for gas for my family and the Kum and Go attendant gave $6. As I stood there crying I thanked God and the people of Muskogee for helping me and putting me right where I needed to be right when I needed to be there. Not only was I able to get my family home, I have been able to get to work this week. I just wanted to say thank you to those two men and the young lady at Kum and Go.

Thank you for being my angels that evening.

Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Krafft
