He made running repairs to his truck, he loaded and unloaded tons of stores to ferry his cargo across flooded creeks. He kept people in touch with the outside world - and was sometimes caught up in the grief of a lonely death. Tom Kruse always got the mail through - come drought, hell or high water.
