QUOTE: "I was part of that Old Man Crew. We stuck together to the end. We shoveled coal and we had good times. We were the best of friends. Then one day I met Jesus. He came and saved my soul. Now I'm walking the streets with Him. And they're not made of coal.” —Gary Pollard, reading an excerpt from “Benny’s Song,” which he composed in honor Benny Willingham, who was killed in the Big Branch mine explosion in West Virginia. Pollard sang the song at Willingham’s funeral on Friday. [, 4/10/10]
