Assistance for the Cover family

On Wednesday 5/1/19 evening one of our drivers, Bill Cover, and his wife Kris were informed that one of their adult sons, Tony Sackett, had passed away suddenly. Bill who had just two days prior come back on the road from home time turned around and deadheaded nearly 500 miles back home to be with his family. 

We all know the struggle that comes with not being with your loved ones for the good moments and especially for the bad. No parent should ever have to bury their child, but that is the unfortunate reality the Cover family faces. 

Because Bill had just come off of home time and had only completed a single load before deadheading back revenue isn't likely enough to cover his lease and fuel for this week or the coming week(s) while he grieves with his family. 

But we are also their family. Each and every day we experience the family atmosphere at Wilson Logistics. We joke and poke fun at each other all the while knowing that we have each others backs whenever the need may arise. Kris and Bill are the best example of this and would give the shirts off their backs to help a fellow driver. 

If you are in a position to help the Cover family with their lease payments or funeral expenses it is greatly appreciated. If you are only able to send your love and support in this horrible time, thank you, the support of friends, family and work family mean more than you know.
