    Janelle, Janet Bright Fowler told me at church Sunday morning about seeing Owen's obituary in Wednesday's Bartlesville paper. She brought the article to me Sunday night. I am so sorry for your loss. Know that you are in my prayers during this time. I always ask Timmy about you and Owen when I see him, but it has been several months since I had seen him.

    I let my brother Montie know also. He is a few years older than Owen, but they, along with a couple of other boys from Lynn Addition, rode horses together a lot growing up. One of the pictures I have of my brother on horseback as a teenager has Owen in the picture.

    I pray that you are doing as well as can be expected during this time, and will continue to pray for you and your family.

    Your Friend,

    Dean Campbell
