James Griffith Owen, V, age 61 of Hendersonville, TN, died Saturday, Sept. 18 at his residence. The Adams, WI native was the son of the late James Griffith Owen, IV and Genevive Busch Owen.

    Jimmie…..aka James…..was so much more than what is in his obit. HE HAD COUSINS that love him!!!! Im one of em. I have searched for years for Jimmie. I never got even close after he left Wisconsin. I knew he had kids…but only remembered Katie by name. His Mother was my favorite aunt…..my mothers sister. I came across this obit today by sheer accident while at work and was and am devastated. Now nothing can ever be different…..not with Jimmie gone. I remember riding his motorcycle with him……going to see the fireworks with his Mom, him and my Mom and sisters. I remember him in his Military dress. ..and now hes gone and it makes me mad and sad all at the same time. Im sorry for the lost his kids must feel. Im sorry that our families were raised in such a way that we never got to stay close to our cousins and such. ……….and still Jimmie is gone. Ohh how I wish I had known him…….had tried harder to find him……to locate the one cousin I loved more than any other. Anyway….to the family…..I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences. I pray you find peace in dealing with this loss. Id give anything to have known Jimmie in recent years and now I’ll never get to. Im sorry……so sorry for all that time has taken from us. Rest in peace Jimmie…….you’re home now and no one can ever hurt or disappoint you again. I’ll miss you Jimmie

  2. My condolences to the Owen Family, During this time of great sorrow, may it comfort you to know that others are deeply touched by your loss. I too know the pain of losing someone dear. Even though our hearts are broken, rest assure that our Grand Creator cares about you personally 1Peter5:7 and can help you though this difficult time. Revelation 21:4 speaks of a time soon when God will do away with death forever. There will be no more sorrow, heartache, or pain. May your happy memories and sure scriptural hope comfort your hearts during this painful time.
