To the Owen Family,
Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Before Bob had to go to the nursing home,
I would help DONNA on Sundays in the nursery at WBC. She was so good with the children and I enjoyed helping her. I am glad we had the opportunity to know her and have her as a friend.
