Default Memorial Gathering for Oilhammer's son, St. Louis MO 04/22/17

I regret to announce the sad news of the passing of renowned TDI Club member Oilhammer's youngest son Nicholas from complications of his condition. He was only 12.

There will be an informal memorial gathering this Saturday April 22nd in St. Louis, MO, (Affton MO more specifically) at the Affton Elk Lodge from 4 to 9 pm for anyone wishing to make an appearance of support for our friend and his family during this difficult time.

From less than a month ago....

The little one seems less than enthused, LOL.

Lift weighs 404 pounds. It is a commercial level Braun Ability unit. Same one they install in OATS and other mobility access minibuses. Very well built unit, far better than the Ricon unit in my Eurovan or the kids' school bus.

The lift was paid for by Variety Club and Kids Assistive Technology, and installed by Southern Bus & Mobility.

It works great, and it is SO NICE being able to take the whole family, nurse, and all our accoutrements along in one happy package that is both frugal and pleasant to drive!

I was only asked to make this announcement, but here I will take it upon myself to suggest again any TDI club members who would like to contribute financially to a truly upstanding and helpful member of this community as they have before, please do so. From what little I understand the health and subsequently financial hardships they soldier on through are simply overwhelming for anyone. I'll be making my inconsequential cash contribution Saturday in person...

The only other thing I have to lure you is I will be bringing my 1/3 million* mile TDI taxi you can see in person.

Thank you all kind TDI Club Members and Fans

Oilhammer's customer and friend,


R.I.P. Nicholas 04/16/2017

*as near as makes no difference
