"Less than a week before he died, Omaha Police Ofc. Jason Tye Pratt asked his father to "Remember me." Michael Pratt Sr. said at the time, his son's request seemed odd to him. "Tye and I had this ongoing joke," he said. "Whenever we would say goodbye, we'd say 'Are you going to miss me?' The last thing he asked me, the weekend before he was shot was 'Dad, are you going to remember me?' and I said 'Yeah, I'm going to miss you.' not thinking anything of it. And he said 'No, are you going to remember me?'" One the last night Tye was with his parents home and the whole Pratt family was together. Rita, Tyes mother, spent all morning and the most of the day before making sure everything was set for a great dinner and good time. They laughed and told stories about the boys and the little grandchildren ran around the house and they all just hung on every word as the stories were told. Tyes family was the last to leave. As the evening wound down, Tye went outside. His father was sitting on a chair in the garage and saw Tye looking straight down as he was kicking a small rock. This wasn't unusual as he often did this when in deep thought. Then he said "are ya going to remember me". The question didn't really register because he and his father had this long running joke... when they would see each other, one of them whould say... hay, "did you miss me" when they meet and "are you going to miss me" as their way of saying good by. Tye knew his father didn't really hear what he said that night when he said "are ya going to remember me" because his dad laughingly replied "ya, Im going miss you". Tye said "no, are ya going to remember me" dad? Knowing that Tye was on the E.R.U. Unit ( emergency Response Unit ), The S.W.A.T. Team, His father said, "does the SWAT team have something big coming up that's got you concerned". Tye replied, "no". His dad said "you're so well trained and you have you buddies, you'll be fine". Without looking up Tye said "well, you never know dad." Just then, Tye's wife came out with the kids. Rita hugged and kissed everyone, his father leaned inside the truck, place his hand around Tye's wrist and while rubbing the back of his head said " I love you son" Tye replied I love you too dad.
Those were the last words Tye and his father spoke together.

The really sad thing is the story behind the story about his children. Jason's wife and parents have been locked in a bitter battle about shared custody, visitation rights and a bunch of other crap involving the kids since his death. The littlest heroes are usually the biggest victims..............Thanks for the post home boy, there's only a river separating you from that cold beer at my house!
