[That event is dramatized in The Last Lunch Box.]From the Author:Being surrounded by the indomitable spirit of the small crew involved in the last load out was an honor Ill cherish until I give up the ghost... probably well beyond that.The scenes of loading the final coal collection would be taken home that evening by all in attendance, along with those involved who could not be in attendance.The experience of having been there for this mines last day of constructive, profit oriented operations has given a sense of peace, being on site to witness a job more than well done.That memory can set a healthy attitude for those times each of us endures more than once, when a heart needs to lie heavy for a while, giving time for a day of passage to settle into a healing soul.In this case the day was a 160 year era....*Linda Shelnutt’s Original 8 VISCERAL HISTORIES*A Mining Series based around Florence, Colorado:1.
