I remember the night before this happened. It was storming out. I was in the florida room to my house i was touching the window when lightening struck the roof. I had the shock of a lifetime. Nothing felt right after that. I couldnt sleep. So i did what my pastor taught. Me. I begun to pray the awful gut feeling away. I prayed for my children. I prayed for my step children. One being my police son Jason. I prayed for him like more than i ever did. The ffeelings on or intuition just churning in my gut. Fell off to sleep. Soon the phone rang. The call you dread. He had been in an accident on duty. His father and i drove in silence to the Hurley Trauma Center. We were met by his mother in law. Then his wife delivered the very sad news about Owen. My heart sank into my stomach. I had to see Jason. The three. Injured officers laid out in that big room with just curtains seperateing them. Each man scared for the rest of their lives. Man down. He was so young. Out of Jason lips was " i could only see my girl. I crawled out of the car through the window. I kept calling Owen to come but he didnt move. Someone talk to my daughter"s mother tell her I am okay. God Owen's gone!" My heart sank again. I didnt know if Jason would be okay. It took time to heal from the injuries and all. Through the love of the Fisher's and all the support Jason healed. He is blessed with his family. But i often wonder How are the Fisher family doing? And then I Pray. .God bless you All! Be safe out there.
