To the family of Owen

Words pale when it comes to sing the praises of Owen. A gentleman of the highest standards and quality. I met Owen just a short three years ago when he needed someone to work with him at senior services counseling for reverse mortgages. I watched as he counseled people. Owen could sense the needs of his clients, and when he worked with them he gave them respect and dignity, he gave them his warmth and above all his guidance for them to make the right decisions. He cared for everyone he touched.

May God comfort Marie and Owens's entire family in their time of grief.

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. I know the Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any man's death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
