Our Story

There are many seminal events in one’s life – childhood events, marriage, children, other blessings and even crises that shape who we are. For my wife Tracey and me, the one event that has most dramatically changed our life and affects nearly every aspect of who we are and how we live is the crash that nearly (should have) killed us on September 8th, 1989. We were 27 years old – had been married 4 years, had a new home, our first child and were as happy and healthy as anyone could be. We were truly blessed. But while on vacation to visit Tracey’s family in Florida – we had gone out to dinner to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary when just after midnight, we were struck by a drunk driver as we were driving on the freeway. We collided at speeds greater than 70 mph – producing fire, heat and crushing mechanical forces that the human body is not designed to survive. ¬†What happened next was horrific. What happened immediately after was incredible….

  1. Thank you for putting into print for all to read your incredible story. I too experienced and angel after a serious car accident. I was in a helicopter being transported to a trauma hospital. My neck was broken and I had a severe spinal cord injury. I was paralyzed and could not feel my body. I had an angel with me and asked him if I was living or dieing. He told me I get to choose. I chose life. My hospital stay was only 5 1/2 weeks but the doctors told me at first I would not walk again but I did and still do. The doctors told me I would experience 2-3 weeks of extreme pain after surgery. I had no pain. We had praised GOD from the beginning and still do. Bryan Finley Northfield MN

  2. My wife and I were in a serious auto accident 11+ yrs ago. She had the emotional trauma of seeing me in the vehicle. She says it was like a angel put its hand down and said enough. I was uncountecience for 3 days. People told her I would never know she wasn’t there as I was uncountecience anway. She came everyday! She also was the first one I saw when I woke up. She and the nurse doing the vitals at the time broke the story to me. Nine days later I was home. It was one & half years till I started slowly back to working in our business. Doctors who read my medical records told me there was no medical reason for me to be here. It is a new normal and we our now part of a support group of others who the heads of home all had a tramtic brain injury. PA
