Alicia Flint hadn't talked with her father Michael, for 20 years, when she learned he was in a horrible house fire in downtown Bend in March.  When her parents divorced when she was a child, she was never able to connect with her father again.  That is until she learned about his accident and traveled to a Portland hospital to see her dad for the first time in decades.  Alicia Flint says out of something bad came something good.

 

“You know I joke with him.  I wouldn't have found you if you hadn't been in that fire.  There's a silver lining to everything and this one has such a beautiful one.”  Alicia says her dad is staying with friends and his recovery continues to be miraculous.  He's walking and eating.  And the two are enjoying getting to know each other again, after all these years.
