The drivers rounded up 100 trucks in Pittsburgh for the start of their journey.
Here they are at their destination, to surprise and escort Mickey’s family to the cemetery. Mickey’s family was happily surprised to see them all there to give their support. As you can imagine, everyone was in tears at this point
What a lovely gesture by them all. I can imagine how proud the family might feel in seeing the respect being paid to their loved one by so many co-workers.
So if you live in Pittsburgh and your package was a bit late last week, then this is probably why. I’d say it’s a worthy reason, wouldn't you?
Thanks for being an outstanding person and making an impact on so many lives. You will never be forgotten. "Fedex, there is nothing like it!"
From his friends:
"Mickey was a ramp agent at Fedex Express. He was basically a manager, and he was on top of his game all the time. God, he had to be working there forever! He never called off, took a vacation, or worked less than 8 hours a day. Mickey loved everyone, and did so many generous things for people. He had no selflessness what so ever."
"He was so special to me because he was the first person I met at Fedex. He trained me and made me always be happy to be at work. He is a role model to me, and a lot of other people. He is one of those people that never take credit for what tasks he achieved. No one disliked him and he was the hardest worker I knew. Mickey used to give me 5 bucks for the vending machine. Why, I don't know. He just did it all the time."
What a heartwarming tribute to Mickey who devoted his career to FedEx.
Relax, Mickey, FedEx is watching over you.
