Laurie Meade's ice cream truck is stolen. Riding in her ice cream truck is her livelihood. Her three wheel Cushman Scooter Ice Cream Truck was stolen out of her driveway in Parkland Christmas night.
You could always find Meade driving her truck with upbeat music sounding from the the speakers of the truck. She had a stereo on the inside with two speakers and listened to her own music, while she played the ice cream music outside.
She could be down and have to force herself to get going and it would only take her three or four blocks and two or three customers and she was happy.
"I adore the young children, they are so sweet, they always make me smile," says Meade.
The guy who stole her truck, stole much more than the value of her truck. He stole her joy, appreciation and love of what she does.
