Lifted by the Kindness of Others

May 20, 2015 is a date my family is not likely to forget. That is the day Tualatin Police Officer Mark Waddell arrived at our door around 9:30 pm. He made sure I was not alone when he shared the news that our youngest son Kyle had been struck by an SUV while in
a cross walk on Boones Ferry Rd. He told me that Kyle had suffered a severe head injury and was on the way to OHSU to the trauma ICU and assuring me that he was going to the best place for care. I knew immediately by his face and tone that this was very serious. Kyle’s father Tony was in California on business and would not get a flight home until the morning.
