Owen, you will be truly missed, were so sad. However , on a good note I cannot get over the 16 or so years we spent at Wisp Ski Resort for the Special Olympics with you and Peanut , you with your clipboard, radio and big blues eyes barking out orders to Me, Janet, Ollie, Tom, Ray and Eddie just to name a few. The one morning specifically when you woke us up with that hair hanging down in front after a hard nite of planning, what a sight. At the end of the 4th day you would keep our Tee shirts and event pins until the very last moment. Another time in the 8 bedroom house on the lake you kept Janet and I and everybody else awake all nite with those boots on the hardwood floors while drinking all the beer. So anyway were here celebrating your life and the good memories. We'll be coming up to see Nene in a short period of time. So we miss you and pray for you. I know your with Mother. Sonny and Janet
