Westgate/Sumner, Iowa (KWWL) - Days after a farmer loses his wife, Diane Buhr, in a car accident, the community pitches in so he can finish his harvest.

Neighbor and friend, Brad Brownell, says in his Facebook post, "The combines, grain carts and semis rolled in to finish harvesting the corn crop that was still standing in the field. Within 24 hours of the accident happening, the last of the 200 acres of corn was being finished up."

It's a beautiful example of Iowans helping Iowans during times of tragedy.

"The next time you are having a bad day remember that we live in rural America and have a whole community of support behind you no matter what," Brownell wrote.

With the colder weather here my wife always ask "Why do we live here." The past few days remains me why we live here....
