Wickler, Donald

Subject

Description

Donald was visiting a fellow retired military friend at his home near Meadowbrook Golf Course the evening of the Flood. He and his friend were in the basement trying to keep things from getting wet when their wives called from upstairs and said, "The cars are floating away." They had just gone upstairs when the concrete wall in the basement collapsed. Donald knows he was minutes from being swept away in the Flood and is grateful for every day of his life.
