    My family lost my baby niece, which was a terrible tragedy. Owen Funeral Home took care of my family like we were apart of the Owen family. Josh was our funeral director and was wonderful. He answered every question we had while we were making the arrangements and answered texts or phone calls quickly for any questions or concerns we had forgot to ask in person. Chaplain Ken performed the service and was also wonderful to work with. He talked to my family to make sure the service was exactly the way we wanted it, which it was. Josh and Ken both have such big hearts and truly care about families whom have just lost a loved one. Read more

    "As the anniversary of Bud's death is upon us, I am sure our family is especially now reflecting on a year ago. Although I'm sure it has played over many, many times for us throughout this past year. Kenny, I have to say you were just awesome. Cannot tell you just how appreciated you were. I have said you're definitely walking in your calling. It's difficult to put into words but you knew just what to say and do for us at that time...Your program at Christmas was so very special. How nice of you all to have that. Also thought it was so gracious of you to have Officer Grignon's funeral there like you did. People may not always express to you just how much you have helped them at such a difficult time, but I know there are a lot of grateful people out there." Read more

All my siblings asked me to convey their deep appreciation to you. They were all very pleased with the entire service. On a more personal note, Rusty and I will forever be indebted to you for your friendship and loving caring manner you displayed in handling all our family members. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. " Read more
