Many Threads of Life families have one question they ask themselves after a workplace tragedy changes their lives forever: “what if?”. Marleen Pitruzzella knows how easy it can be to play the “what if” game. After her dad, Leo, died when he was struck by a truck at the paving job he loved, she played this game for a number of years.
