"Thank you, Officer Quillen, for writing my husband that seat belt ticket a month ago. Because he didn't want another ticket, he was wearing his seat belt properly this morning when another vehicle crossed the center line and hit him head on in Smyrna when he was on his way to work. His truck is totaled but he has only bruises and swelling. It was the first thing he said when I got to the hospital this morning, " I have to call that officer and say thank you."
I'm saying thank you, also, because I believe that it saved his life, today. We've been married for 27 years. We're raising 2 of our grandchildren. I need him. I wanted to say thank you, also."
