The Owens family have been in my memories my whole life. Sister Owens carried herself with such grace and dignity, and always shining her beautiful smile. When my parents talk about their favorite long time friends, the Owens are always top of the list. I look forward to the day of seeing her beautiful smile again. My parents, no longer able to travel, send their deepest love to Billy and all the kids. Love, the Dallas family
