A miraculous lightWe would like to express our unlimited thanks to whoever placed the flowers and candles at the site of our son’s accident on Oct. 15.Our 24-year-old son, Djuan Williams, met his untimely demise on Donner Pass Road while operating a cement-mixer truck. We live in Stockton, Calif., 150 miles away, and it wasn’t until the following day that we could conduct any substantial business in Truckee. You must understand that this kind of news is only realized as evidence is experienced. In this case, Djuan’s not returning home that evening was the first real sign of his demise.Though very sad, our visiting the accident scene on the following day was a large step in our acceptance of the reality of this incident.
