LINDEN, Mich. — Some send condolences or ask how they can help. Others tell how they too lost someone in a truck crash. And then there are e-mails from truckers, some eager to talk about the dangers they also face.
Ever since Sherry and Rob Durk created a Web site about their 15-year-old daughter's death late one night last July on an Illinois highway, the notes have poured in.
