On January 11, 2011 at approximately 10:30 am the Sorency Mobile was taken from this earth. She served us well. Her death was unexpected. While doing her daily chores of carting family members throughout the city she was struck by an oncoming Ferrell Gas Company repair truck. Her face was ripped off like a can of Contadina peeled whole tomatoes. It was a horrible sight, bumpers and headlights strewn over the intersection, the radiator weeping fluids onto the pavement. They took her away on a flatbed tow truck, iron chains securing her broken bones against any further damage in a desperate attempt to get her the care she needed to survive but her vital systems flat-lined somewhere between the scene of the accident and Gray Bahl repair. The insurance agents showed up at our front door hours later to inform us of her demise, the bent Sorency license plate wrapped in a satin blanket.
Funeral services are pending. The family requests no flowers but donations in her name can be made to the National Association of Teal Colored Cars (NATCC).
