Perhaps you've seen them... She sits on her husbands lap as they scoot through Murfreesboro in his motorized wheelchair.

Jimmy Caldwell and his wife Richelle have been in love for years, as anyone who has seen the couple can vouch. The two have three children, who often follow behind their mom and dad in downtown Murfreesboro.

A Rover bus driver wanted to provide a little help...



That was Cliff Sharp, founder of Greenhouse Ministries.

As things often unfold at Greenhouse through prayer and grace, the idea of providing a wheelchair accessible van to the Caldwell family, an idea sparked by a Rover bus driver, soon became more than just a passing thought...



Christian Brothers Automotive repaired and serviced the van, Tire World provided a brand new set of tires and Mobility Works in LaVergne adjusted the wheelchair lift - so the next step was to hand over the keys to the Caldwell's...



Cliff Sharp highlighted what really made this happen - Rover bus driver Wanda Thompson's simple idea to help a family...



The Caldwell's, who both had separate traumatic brain injuries and first met while in therapy at the Tennessee Rehabilitation Center in Smyrna, will now be able to have a date night without the fear of Jimmy's wheelchair battery going dead, a fear that most have in a motorized wheelchair.
