    Grandma was a very gracious lady and I didn’t know of her to complain even in the last couple of years when you know she was uncomfortable. We love and miss you. You raised a wonderful family.

    I did not have the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Owen, but I knew her sister, Martha. If Mrs. Ownen was anything like Martha, then she was a wonderful & loving person! My condolences to the family.
