Family thanks OCSO


OKEECHOBEE - A few weeks ago, Mr. Narcisse had a medical emergency and became lost within our county's heavily wooded northwest portion. Thankfully, Mr. Narcisse was found 16 hours later and given the medical attention he needed.

This past weekend, the Narcisse family and several church congregation members surprised some of those who searched for Mr. Narcisse. Sgt. Bryan Lowe and his shift, plus members of the mounted search and rescue team, were prayed over and fed a fantastic meal by the family. During this, Mr. Narcisse's mother gave a heartwarming "thank you" speech she had prepared for Sgt. Lowes shift.

Another significant part of the presentation was when the Narcisse family presented Deputy Sheriff Bryan Holden with a special plaque for his extra efforts staying and assisting them at the initial scene for over four hours. Never leaving the sister and mother and even getting them gas.

Sunday was an unexpected and appreciated token of thanks from a grateful family. As always, we want to thank our community and all that travel through it for their continued support.
