Oh, Jesse, how tragic for you all.  I'm so very, very sorry.  You and your
family will be in my thoughts.

I'm very sorry to hear about your fall.  How awful!!!  Very hard to do your
job when you're injured like that!!! Man....

My sister drowned in flood waters after driving past a barricade.  I'll
never understand why she tried that.  Here is a link to the story:
I have never seen Pryor (which is 10-15 minutes from my house) so flooded in
my entire life.  My parents have lived there for over 30 years and never saw
it this bad.  We had 23 days of rain.  The day before my sister died, Pryor
had 9 inches of rain in less than two hours.  My husband and I were there
when they were searching for her car and body and had to tell my parents
what happened.  They were on vacation and driving back after getting a call
from the police department.  So, after that was the funeral and tons of
people, then having to clean out her personal things in her apartment,
adopting her "only child" (the parrot)...then the media decided to air the
911 call after my parents lost the battle in court to NOT have it released,
which just poured lemon juice in the cut for the entire family.
*sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh*  it has been a very stressful month for me.
