“Mrs.Owens, Jonna. I am so sorry for your loss. I rent Coach. Owens from Danville High. If there's anything I can do let me know. My God bless you and keep you strong.
“My Deepest Sympathy to the Owens Family.
“Linda, I came to know you and O.B. thru Mike. Because of O.B.'s love and dedication to the boys he coached and his continued care for them as they grew into young men and beyond, he held a place in Mike's heart as both a friend and father figure. You and O.B. have been so kind to us over the years as Mike struggled and ultimately lost his battle with Huntington's disease. You both will always have a place in my heart. I will be praying for God's comfort to embrace you and carry you thru this...
“We are so very sorry for you loss and will certainly keep you, Linda, as well as your daughter and granddaughter in our thoughts and prayers. OB was so well-loved and highly thought of....that was evident from the overflowing crowd we saw on Monday. May our Lord's peace and comfort be yours in the coming days.
“So sorry to hear of coachs passing he was a good man that instilled all of the right stuff in all of his former players. Every time ive saw him since high school days has been fun. Im sure gonna miss those chats. I pray for you and joanna mrs. owens.
“Coach Owens was Danville's version of Paul Bear Bryant. I still can hear him yell, "TOTE THAT ROCK" to Ardie Orr.
A life, with as many "Footprints" left behind in so many others lives; is a life well lived!
May God give you all peace, comfort and assurance in the days to come.
“So sorry for your loss and the loss of a great neighbor. I will miss the daily trip to the mail box where O.B. always would have a friendly hello. Sorry i missed the service but just now read paper and seen the time. If I can be of any help for anything please just feel free to ask.
“Prayers to Linda and Jonna Lynne. Many happy memories of your family. May The Lord send you His comfort and peace until you meet O.B, again.
“Joana, May you and your family find peace and comfort. The sudden loss of a loved one is hardest of all, as our family well knows. God bless you. Sincerely, Sallye Powell Coggin
