Reflections for Police Officer Owen David Fisher

Seems like November is when everything really hits home. I still can't believe it's been 4 years without you here. I thank God for you everyday. If this was God's plan for you, if this is what we had to go through to have you in our lives, then it was all worth it. Doesn't make it any easier, but nothing can really do that. I love you and miss you.

Hey O,
Best time of the year is here...Fall! I am missing you like crazy. Hank keeps pointing at your picture on the wall which is strange...but, then I get to tell him who you are which is nice. Hope you're keeping an eye on us and getting a kick out of your nephew.
Love you.

hey o-

Just been thinking about you alot. now that im closer to turning 21 and getting ready for the academy. i just want you to watch over me for a little, i moved back home and my boyfriend broke up with me. i guess the marines was to much to handle with a girlfriend. i've been upset and struggling. so just protect him when he deploys still. and watch over me as i start my new journey into the police world. finally my dreams will be coming true. i miss you alot and hear that theres gonna be another addition to the family.. i miss you and wish you were here..

love always-

I thought of you yesterday (I do everyday.) as I entered Katie and Jer's. Your mum put Hank down, and he walked all the way across the house to me, doing the just-learning-to-walk Frankenstein gait to keep his balance. The sorrows, the wonders, and miracles continue daily as I remember that little boy twenty-eight years ago.
I love you.

Hi O,
Hank just turned one! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. I have showed him pics of you and told him about you...it can't hurt to start doing this early:) I often times find myself thinking of you while we are playing or going on wagon rides and what a great Uncle you would be. He doesn't know what he's missing. Next week is the sibs retreat...keep an eye out for a safe trip and some extra comfort.
Love you, Kate

Hi Sweetheart

A fine man and fellow officer has joined you. Clarence Banks, who did so much for our family when you died, died yesterday of a heart attack. It was CB who helped us with everything. He cared so much about caring for us. He will always have a special place in my heart.

I remember meeting his fine family and how proud he was of them all. They and Flint have truly lost a good man.

Please welcome him.

Love you,

Mom

hey O,

I havent been on here for a while, been very busy. As you probably know, I moved to Jacksonville, NC. to live with my boyfriend Christian. He's in the Marines. I miss you, and i still havent seen Hank, im sure that i'll make it home for christmas and hopefully everyone will be there, i hope. i miss everyone dearly and being here not having anyone except my boyfriend can get hard. Hows my gramps doing? tell him i met some people before i left who used to work for him and said he was a great guy. Hope you have been watching down on all of us, i know you do everyday but please watch me especially and point me down the right path. It scares me to have to be so grown up at only 20! gosh im 20 now. 2 more months till the big 21 lol. im sure you remember those days. lol i was just learning to drive when you passed and now i feel like a professional. I miss you alot Owen. I wish you could come and visit me here at Topsail island. the ocean is beautiful feel perfect with the nice breeze. im sure you could show me somethings i didnt know. you always knew the little things lol. i hope to see everyone soon and at least you get to see everyone daily. thats gotta be nice. i have been here only a week and i find myself thinking of Donna and i get tears in my eyes. AND PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch over him when he deploys, i just ask you that. too bring him back safely to me. I cant imagine going through what amy went through if i lost him. He means the world to me O. but before i start crying again i love you and i miss you so much. wish you were here to see this place.

i love you O!

Hi Sweetheart

It is true. July is a hard month. Thankfully, there are so many happy memories it helps us all get through the tough times.

At the cemetery I was struck by how much the tree has grown. When we picked out your grave site, we were drawn to the tree. Like you, it seemed so full of potential and had room to grow. It has and it gives me comfort. So much has happened in the last four years. The time has both flown and crawled by. I know you have watched it all.

I miss you and love you.

July is one hard month...it's true that time helps to heal pain, but sometimes it feels so fresh and new. Hope you are watching over us closely in the week to come...love you. Katie

Hi Sweetheart,
Grandma is an amazing woman at 95 and is doing well. She was so excited to meet Hank and he fulfilled all her wishes. He was his cute, sweet self. I'm sure she never thought she'd have a great grandchild. It was very neat. She and your Dad were even able to joke back and forth. It was a great time.
Staying at the cottages was wonderful and brought back memories of your trip home from Alaska. Besides you, the missing ingredient was the strong, strong odor of fish you brought with you. We walked the beach, went up to Qualicum and enjoyed visiting. I'd take Hank for walks thinking he'd go to sleep but he never did. There were too many new wonders to be seen. He'd sit upright in his stroller and watch everything.
Now we're home and back being busy. Your buddy, Len, was happy to see us. For the first day or so it was like having a Velcro pet. Now he's back chasing chipmunks and climbing trees.
I know you continue to watch over us all. Thanks for that.
Love you,
Mom

We watched the Police Memorial Ceremony on Wednesday night, remembering and missing you.
Today we are watching your nephew Hank and remembering another little boy who learned to crawl and utter one-syllable sounds, wannabe words.
Loving you,
Dad

Happy Easter (one day late)! We had a great day yesterday...Hank stole the show. You should've been there, but God must have his reasons why you weren't. Love and miss you.

Hi Sweetheart

It is a beautiful winter - waiting for spring - day. I watched the deer roam through as I had my breakfast. Every day and night brings new beauty.

I know you are watching over us and enjoying Hank. He is a happy, fun little guy. Katie and Jer are great parents and he is so loved. Grandparenting is a wonderful new role and Hank brightens the day.

Some of your friends are back at work and I know you'll be watching over them as well.

I miss you and love you.

Hi,
I think you would really love yur nephew, Hank. More and more, he is becoming a smiling and sociable human being so far removed from that animated turnip he was when he was first born. Help him to be the leader you are in a time when everybody thinks him/herself a leader. You are a true one. Thanks for being there to watch over us all and to bring out the best in us.
Love,
Dad

Hi there!
I was thinking about you just yesterday when I was showing Hank your picture. Explaining who you are is going to be a tough one. Not because I don't like to talk about you...in fact, I find it very comforting. The hard part is getting it all right. Of course, he's only an infant, but I figure it's never too soon to let him know he's got a special someone to keep an eye out for him.
I love you.

So, we are heading to Hank Wouter's funeral tomorrow. He was a great man who helped many people get through the same thing we have gone through with losing you. His son, Chris, also died in the line of duty. Then I ended up meeting his daughters on the COPS Siblings trip. It is amazing how meeting such great people and experiences have come out of something so tragic.
I love you and have been thinking about you often. Hank is doing awesome...I just wish so much that he cold have met you face to face. Love you today and forever.

I miss you brother. I think and pray for you frequently. Merry Christmas to your family and watch over me as I protect and serve. I got a memorial tattoo on my arm about a year ago in memory of you... I look at it often..I love you and will never forget your smile.

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 time...be here with us & make your presense felt in the days to come. I love you as much as ever.
