Dear Owens Family,
Please know that you have my deepest sympathy and prayers during your time of bereavement.
I was thinking of Ms. Pearl the other morning listening to the song "Changed" from back in our Westwood days and I could still hear her playing the piano.
It deeply saddens me to hear the news of her Earthly departure. However, we rejoice and take delight in knowing that she is welcomed to her Heavenly Home and walks with the King!
May it be comfort to you to know that you are loved and cared for always and especially during this time.
With Prayers of Comfort and Peace,
Terrell Carter (Son of Eddie & Connie)

Even though the last of the U. S. trpoos have been recalled from Iraq, there are still many members of the armed forces stationed throughout the world and the military seems to be at the leading edge with web conferencing technology. For years, soldiers stationed far from home have relied on letters, packages and occasional phone calls to stay in touch with loved ones. With video conferencing technology on the rise in all fronts, more than ever, military personnel can connect with family members back home in real time. A recent study on How Deployments Affect Service Members indicated that family separation is one of the most negative aspects of troop deployment. In that study, focus groups with U.S. military personnel stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2003 and 2004 found that being separated from family caused higher-than-usual stress and significantly reduced individuals' intention to re-enlist. So this trend is apparently not just good for business, but it in a way, it helps preserve our freedom as a nation.
