Little Red Stories
Ford likes nothing better to do than to take his Beautiful Red Radio Flyer Tike out for a ride with his Papa on a beautiful day!
We use our little red wagon in a cemetery. We are on our second one now as our first one was stolen. When a family suffers a loss it is never easy, and especially when it is a child. We have found a small act of service can help a hurting and grieving family go along ways. During a service for a child in our cemetery we have provided a little red wagon. The parents are provided with an opportunity to pull their child one last time, from the hearse to the grave. It's never easy to watch, but often mother, and father cling heavy to this idea. The casket will remain in the wagon throughout the service and at the end pulled to the grave for burial. I know many will not find this idea cute, or photogenic, but others will find it comforting and subtle. On behalf of our families, we thank you for our little red wagon.
Our first wooden radio flyer wagon is now approximately 40 years old. We just sanded it and repainted it today. We are giving it to our great grand daughter along with a new pink radio flyer three wheeler (big wheel) this Sunday, June 4th, 2017 for her sixth birthday. She will be SO excited!
