    Tracy, Jason, Jack and family:
    I’m so very sorry, there are no words to make you feel better at this time but know that you have so many people praying for you right now. Things aren’t supposed to be like this and I guess we’ll never understand it. Owen’s memory will live on through his family and friends. I only saw him once at June’s but he was such a joy to be around. He loved his parents, his big brother Jack and his Grandparents and you could tell he and Jack were the light of their lives. Sending lots of love, hugs and prayers as you get through the next few days and onward. Thinking of you all and wishing I could take the hurt away. Heaven has a new Angel looking down on you.
