Hi O,
You come to mind daily as you always do. That old picture of you sitting on Katie's back and, it appears, yelping with joy is one I see daily. I remember that I love you and am loved in return.

I was training a rookie officer, and thoughts of you popped inside of my head. Tears of sorrow stream to my face. I know you are in a better place, but you are deeply missed. Prayers got out to you from the Flint Police department. God Bless.

I am thinking of you today. I wish I could call you. So much going on that I'd like to share with you. Even here, so far from home, I talk about you to my friends. I can't believe so much time has past. You are still as present in my heart. I love you.

Owen, Carisa and I think about you all the time. You were a great person and a great friend and we miss you so much!!! I think about our time together in the police academy and the times you would come and visit us in Paw Paw. I miss your stories about being a rookie cop in the City of Flint and can remember how excited you were to almost being done with your FTO. You have touched our hearts deeply and we will continue to keep you there and remember you forever. I know your watching over me when I'm on duty and making sure I'm making the right decisions. We love you and miss you!!!

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today. Continue to watch over them, protect them and guide them in their decisions in life. Watch over your parents as I know their daily struggle.

"The sense of loss does not diminish with time. In truth, the expression 'time heals all wounds' is a myth. For parents, the loss of a child is permanent and mental scar tissue really does not grow over the grim memory. Rather, all tears are expended and a dull ache remains."

Today we head for Flint to cry a little and laugh a lot. Owen, you are missed every day. I'm so grateful for all the memories we have. What good fortune we have had to have two wonderful children in our lives.
Love you.

Hey O. It's easy to tell when July is approaching because we get into the flurry of leaving for vacation for the Fourth. Of course, I always look back to my first vacation/family reunion in 2005. We headed back home, got back into the swing of this with school and work, and then got a visit to the house that would change the course of our lives forever. I am not a big fan of July anymore...it's a month that come and go quickly. I will never forget the call from my boss that the police were looking for me....I was wondering what the heck I did wrong:) With mom and dad out of the country, I never expected that you were the reason. There is so much I miss. I miss your laugh, your hugs, someone to laugh at mom and dad with (because no one else can in the same way). I also miss feeling like myself before all of this. I truly believe one of the last gifts you gave me was my Sibings group from COPS, even if unknowingly. Without them, I'd be lost. I love you and I hope you look and laugh at all the antics and keep giving a nudge in the right direction when life gets off track. You are seriously the best.

Well, we are leaving this week to head to Police Week. Throughout the year, it feels like we lose track of time with our everyday lives. The time in DC is a special time to just think about you, maybe cry a little, and laugh about you as well...it is so nice that we actually laugh when talking about you now. It is awesome to see the brotherhood you were so excited to be a part of during all of the events and while 'unwinding' at night. Please watch over all of us traveling there from all over the country, especially those going for their first year. That brings up such raw emotions even 7 years later imagining the first time there. I love you.

Love,
Dad

O,
Just thinking about you as I ofter do and wanted to stop by your page and let you know. Ward and I were talking on the phone the other day and he said one of your famous phrases. We both just lauged and remembered all kinds of things about you and out times in the academy. Wish you were here.

Hey you. Jacko and I are officially booked for Police Week. I so look forward to that time. It really gives me that time I need to just focus on all that has happened in the past (almost) 7 years. Can it seriously be 7 years already? Seems like last month sometimes.
I was visiting some of my Sibs friends in Detroit not too long ago, and I realized all of our brothers gave us a gift we didn't realize we would need so badly. That gift is the COPS organization that linked us all together. Honestly, this journey would have been near impossible without them.
Missing you seems to never be far from my thoughts. Life gets busy, the kids are crazy, and yet there are so many reminders of you that stop me in my tracks.
I love you so much.

Hi O,
You would have been proud of Katie and Jer and your friends who put together a surprise party for your birthday at the White Horse. We hugged, shared stories about you, visited, reminisced. Only one person was missing.
Love, you,
Dad

Two of your best buds sittin around havin a drink on your behalf, wishing you were with us. Too bad you couldnt meet alyssa, alex, or jacob you would have been a great godfather. We love you and always will. We still think of you and have many pictures and memories to reflect on, we'll never forget you. Boys forever we will see you again in the same light one day. We will never forget the experiences we have been through with you and we will live our lives from those lessons. Dave, Vida, and Katie we will always think of you and remember the little times as well as the big ones. Sometimes I dream of Owen and it brings some relief but hurts when I wake up and realize it was just a dream. Maybe one day, Dave, you and I could have a discussion about it, I am sure you would understand and catch my drift like you have been able too for the majority of our lives. You are one of 3 people that have always understood my train of thought and I have always admired and appreciated that gift you have. Love to the family forever, and forever is quite awhile.

Nathan and Jason
Only 3 people know you better.

Hi O. Something about signing up for the Sibs retreat makes me think about you all the time. Watching Hank & Walter lately has me imagining how much fin you guys would have had together. I can't imagine how much they would have adored you!

For the first time in 6 years, I am finally angry over your passing. Since this is a totally new feeling, I am not quite sure what to think about it. I guess it's about time though, huh?

Basically, I just miss you. I was thinking about the green couch at mom and dad's the other day. There was almost a 75% chance you would be laying on it when I came home at any point. I miss coming in and getting a hug. I miss the way your laugh only came from the belly. You were one of the few people who would not give a polite laugh if something was not funny....it was always easy to tell when something amused you. And you always made laughing at the most inappropriate times even worse.

I love you.

Hi Ho O,
I was just thinking of you and thought I'd say hi and let you know how much you are remembered and loved. We spent the afternoon yesterday with Katie, Jer and Hank and Walter at Higgins Lake. Would you have enjoyed your little nephews! And they, you.
Love you.

God bless you, O. You are missed, but remembered.

I’m sitting with Len by my side. I remember when you and Katie brought him home. He was so tiny. And, I remember Dad and I coming home finding you bleeding like crazy from giving him a bath (you were both bored and thought it would be fun to give a kitten a bath!) and his sleeping on your bed for at least a month after you died. Now he’s chasing voles and chipmunks and going on walks with Hank and Dad. I expect Walter will be joining them very soon.
We are remembering you by sharing your joy of life with Katie, Jeremy, Hank and Walter. You are always remembered and family and friends are still held dear.
Love you and miss you.

This morning, when I opened the front door to say my daily, "Hi, O.", a red band ran across the sky in the hole in the trees where I look up. It reminded me you were there, and I pretended that that band was blue.
Missing you every day,
Dad

Well, this week is 6 years! Seems crazy that you've been gone that long. I always go between thinking it seems like forever and thinking it seems like last week. Either way, you are missed just as much. This past weekend, I saw your gradeschool boys. Man, they all look like they did in the thrid grade....I can't beleieve the stories they still have no shame in telling. I love them all. Seeing everyone made me think how you should have been there. I am always telling myself that God must have a plan or else none of this makes sense.

Maybe it's good that Hank and Walter don't know what they're missing because that just makes it so much worse. Looking at Hank makes me think of you as he reminds me of you...all blonde hair and blue eyes and pale skin. Walter is more like you in personality...a gentle giant. That;s what I think of you...so gentle, so funny, and the only person who could probably make me the most mad in the whole world:)

We all miss you. I miss you.

Your memory lives on, Owen, with the Flint Sunrise Rotary Owen Fisher Memorial Scholarship. Tomorrow (June 22, 2011) a fine young lady who is from Flint Southwestern High School will receive a small ($1,000) proceed to support her education, and to help improve lives through her education at Kettering University. Mom always said you were a most caring and tender young man, and I know you are smiling down on us today in Flint. God bless you and your family.
