Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Owen David Fisher

So, I just realized I didn't leave you a Birthday message. Mom, dad, Jeremy & I did take work off and spend the day together, but you already knew that.
Lately, my heart just aches for you. It feels like an actual pain. Watching Hank sometimes, I just want him to know you and vice versa. You would have been an awesome Uncle...while he will know who your are, it's still not the same (obviously). It seems that the missing you part is always there, but I am having an especially hard time right now in dealing with you being gone. Christmas mass gets me every here with us & make your presense felt in the days to come. I love you as much as ever.

Hi Sweetheart,

A little tiger went out into the Halloween night and looked adorable. It reminded me of when you and your sister were little and all the parents and kids came around. Just like then, the kids were all excited and some of the little ones getting tired out. Very cute.

You would be so proud of your sister. She's an amazing mom and has great patience (Yes, your sister!). Hank is a lucky guy to have such good parents. Dad and I enjoy watching them with him and remembering. This grandparent stuff is OK and I think we're catching on to it.

Thanks for the hand on my shoulder. Keep it there and keep an eye on us all.

Love you,

It has been many years since I first saw your memorial. I still think of you often. It spooked me to see almost my own name listed here. I still protect and serve my community.

It is wonderful to see your family still posting here and updating everyone on their lives. I know how much they love you and miss you.

May you rest in peace my brother officer.

So, I'm sure you've gotten some laughs lately watching me deal with a newborn. He is the best thing ever, & he would just love you. I know you can see him. I tell him about you although he just looks at me sucking his hand or farting when I do(perfect, huh?). Someday he will know all about you. I will be going through Flint next week to stop by the cemetery..look for me. I love you and think about you everyday. Miss you.

I am finally getting to leave you a message on here...Hank Owen MacDonald has arrived! I'm sure you already know this, but I thought I should still write about it. He is just would have just loved to meet him. I wore your badge necklace during the whole ordeal and truly believe you watched over us. Amy looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day...we all miss you and talk about you often. Thank you for all you still do.

Love you and miss you,

Just thinking about the 65th - you and I running miles and miles to prepare months before it started. It's all you wanted in the world and you gave your all for it. I remember the moment when I learned of your sacrifice. Both of us working at out first police jobs, and it was the first time I wished we had not chased a dream and chose this life. But I know you would not have been happy any other way. You are thought of well and often.

Rest peacefully brother.

Hey O!
I was just looking out the window this morning and thinking how much I wish you were here. I'm just waiting for the baby to arrive...8 days and counting til the due date. No doubt, this little one will know much about his or her Uncle. It's a great thing that's about to happen and we couldn't be more excited! It's also a reminder at times of how much life goes on. Please watch over us in the days to come.
Love you and miss you!

Thanks for all your doing and listening to all our prayers. i love you...

Hi O,
We remembered you yesterday and once again celebrated your life and all you taught us, the love, acceptance, kindness. We have all grown because of you. Katie(There's so much more of her to admire now)has grown consistently through these last three years, as have the rest of us. That is in part your legacy. Thank you.
Love you,

David Fisher

I have not left a reflection since July of 2005. I just reread all the pages of
reflections here and it is easy to see your son was deeply admired and respected. I am so impressed with you as loving parents and it must be such
a difficult road to travel. I admire your spirit and courage to accept the things that can't be changed and to put one foot in front of the other to arrive at some measure of peace and to be able to help others along the way. Not everyone goes to heaven, regardless of how "good" they try to be or think they are, but only by faith in the Son of God who sacrificed His life on our behalf. I hope, along with you, that many will accept Jesus as "The Way, The Truth and The Life" for nobody gets to heaven except thru Him. John 14:6
You lived your life well, Owen, but we grieve at its brevity. So many people
love and miss you as testified here and you made an impression on everyone,
regardless of how long ago it was or how brief. Thanks for glorifying the Lord with your life and I look forward to meeting you one day when I am
reunited with my Lord and Savior.

Hi O,

I can not believe it will be three years tomorrow since you've been gone. Often times, it still feels like you are around. As if I drove down to Flint, and walked through the door, you'd be catnapping on the couch. Not to mention I talk to you almost daily.

I have come to the point where I just thank God for you everyday and the time we got you for. I know He always has a plan. While it feels you were taken too early, I truly believe it was in His plan and that we were truly blessed to know you and love you.

Please watch over us during this special time, with baby on the way and grandparents to be made. Love you!



July 15, 2008

Hey O,

Just stopping by to say hello. SO much is going on here, and you are thought of often during these times. Mom and Dad just moved up here. Amy and I both agreed you would be shaking your head about this somewhere, but there were many signs that it was time to go. We saw all of the neighbors we grew up with and took plenty of pictures of the house. As I looked into our rooms one last time, I couldn't help but think of all the good times we had on Norbert St.
While I missed you terribly that day, I am missing you most when I think of the baby and how he or she is not going to meet you. They would no doubt adore you, and I wish you were here during this whole process. It's just another sign of how life goes on and how important it is that we keep your spirit alive. I love you.

Good morning O-
You are thought of lovingly often, but you know that already. However you left a host of people who keep you fondly in their hearts and minds, and whom we thank God for allowing us to have had you in our lives.
I miss you.

hey o,

Long time to talk, seems like forever. I know its not though, you hear my prayers everynight. I know your listening too all of us, and i can only imagine how wonderful it feels to know that so many people love you and think of you on a daily basis. I miss you Owen,I know we didnt get to see each other as much as we wanted.I just remember when you were visiting in Ohio, Sarah and I always had to make extra visit's when we knew Katie and Owen were coming! I still feel that way when i ask granda (Aunt Donna) if katie is coming and i hate not getting to finish the rest of the sentence. I miss you alot Owen, so many things I wish I could have asked you and so many more memories I wanted to make. I cherish the ones I have more than you could know. I know we make alot more now just in thought. I can name a million times your name has proudly came out of my mouth in my law and government class i took in school. I talk as if you were there as a visitor to the class. Ha Ha I wish you could have. You were my Hero, and you alawys will be Owen.

Miss you more and more each day.

Hi Ho, O,
I was up at the new house yesterday when I thought of you and the distance we would be from you. Then I remembered that where we are, you are. That was a comfort.

Hi Sweetheart

We're just back from DC. It was wonderful to see Spring. We went to the memorial and found a whole group who had volunteered to clean all the panels before all the events in May. What a kind thing to do. It was very quiet and peaceful. While there is no comfort in having your name on that wall, there was comfort in not seeing another name below yours.

After visiting Arlington and seeing some things in DC, we went back to the memorial for one more quiet moment. First we saw about 30 Washington PD outside the hockey game. They had been down at the Mall for a rally by the American Nazi Party. They were sent to the Verizon Center in case all the jubilant Caps fans went wild. Then we got down by the monument and it was really noisy. There were about a dozen officers there and one guy with a portable loudspeaker system rapping and ranting about religion and politics - right at the memorial! Well, you guys all swore to defend the right of free speech and he sure was taking it to heart. Needless to say, we sat for a while but it wasn't the quiet moment we had wanted. Yet Dad and I both thought you'd be smiling.

I miss you - your smile, your laugh and your big hug. Keep watching over all of us. Life keeps evolving and I know you are part of it all.

Hi there--things are coming along fast here. It seems like I'm going to have this baby next week! I wish you were here so bad--you'd be an awesome Uncle. I was just thinking about you, and love you so much.


April 15, 2008

Hey O

I was just thinking about you and decided to finally stop in on your page and put it in writing. :) I know that you're watching over all of us during these growingly exciting times... and something tells me between katie and I, you've remained quite entertained over the past few months. Perhaps even a tiny bit of pity for the boys..? Alright, I think I'm going to try and get to bed now. I have to make sure I'm on my game so I can get that graduation thing your sister was talking about taken care of.
I miss you so much. Think about you all time and will love you always. Keep watching over us.



March 20, 2008


Well, I hope you're watching during this exciting time. I am buying up all the great baby stuff I can find, going overboard, and being generally rediculous at times. You probably get a kick out of it and me driving Jer crazy--bless his heart. Amy is doing great--so close to being done with school. I am excited to have a graduation party for her eventually--it's been a while in the making. Mom and dad are moving up here soon. While I'm excited that they will be close to us and the baby, it is tearing my heart out to sell the house in Flint. More memories have happened in that house than anywhere else for all of us. Don't worry though, I'll still take the kiddo to Mott Park to play occasionally (just no homemade bombs in the tunnel). Just filling you in. Miss you and love you dearly.



February 29, 2008

Hi O,
Well, you're going to be an uncle. Rest assured that we shall make you the living presence for your nephew/niece that you are for us who miss you. And rest assured that you are ever loved.
