To the Owen family, I am so sorry for your loss. Grace was my classmate and a friend. She was good to me and I will always remember her for that. I will pray for everyone that God will help you to heal. She is now with our Lord and resting in peace. May God Bless you and hold you in the palm of his hand.. Margaret Owen Taylor

As her youngest son, I can speak for how caring and loving this woman was. There were just innumerable times she put others before herself. She gave every ounce of her being to her sons. The happiest I ever saw her was on a fall October day in 2018 after she had gotten back from church. "I'm finally in the right place with God." In the last months of her life, she enjoyed going to church more than anything. Right now I grieve her loss with incredible mourning, but I'm confident she's now in God's arms in Heaven.
