To The Telegram,
My wife and I attended Owen Gran's benefit spaghetti dinner Dec. 10 at Superior Town Hall. There was a very good turnout with continual slides showing of Owen's life through where he is now.
Owen didn't believe in driving and drinking. While he was walking between Ray's EZ Bar and The Dog House Bar, he was a victim of hit and run by a northbound vehicle on County Road E. In the early morning Oct. 8, Owen's life -- along with mom, dad, girlfriend and many friends' lives -- would never be the same.
Because of the hour, we believe someone was either leaving a bar and going home or perhaps going to Dog House or Log Cabin. Rick and Linda Gran are not too interested in who hit their son as they are for insurance money to help their needs with Owen. I believe that's what everyone wants. My wife, our sons and Owen were close friends and attended Boy Scouts together.
My feelings are that the person who did this must have a hole burning through their heart. The only way there could be any relief from this is by asking for forgiveness. Then go to the authorities and find if there is anything you can do to help remedy the situation. Things are already bad for you, but they can only improve. The Bible tells us not to fear those who kill our flesh, but only those who kill our flesh and spirit. I'm afraid your spirit may already be dead and you must ask for forgiveness to get it back. If you act now, you could be a part of Owen's recovery starting today. If not, you may spend the rest of your life in misery. The choice is yours.
The feelings expressed from Rick and Linda to me is that this was a total accident where you don't know what you hit or even if you hit something. Maybe you thought it was a deer or any number of things, but it wasn't. It was Owen Gran. If you're living in denial and not able to admit to the pain of the truth, maybe you could think of the Gran family not knowing at all what the truth is.
