Papa, Tony D Owens

Papa, Tony D Owens wishes to be cremated and spread throughout the world. He has several places and theaters he wants his ashes spread. He also wants his ashes placed in small necklaces for his love ones to have and to always hold a part of him.

I need enough funds to make sure my mom can hold on to their home as long as possible, making sure his daughter and granddaughter have money to come back to Indiana for his memorial and final goodbyes, cover the expenses of shipping his ashes to others around the world for his final spreading of his ashes and necklaces for all those that want to keep a part of him, and any left over money after all said and done will help my mom with any final bills and I will look into putting together a savings bond or CD for his two granddaughters.

Papa, wasn't able to afford to keep his life insurance policy. Time got away from him. He just became too sick too fast that he couldn't keep up with all the final wishes, paperwork, needs. Let alone he refused to think about it. He wants to keep always living and be strong for everyone. He is showing his strength right now and fighting all odds, so he can be there for everyone and give his final love and goodbyes.

I am very proud to be his daughter and be apart of his life.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

He has the most amazing group of friends and family. I have never met someone like him that has touched so many lives. He kept asking what did I do to deserve all of this love and support? I reminded him, papa even with just a smile, a laugh, a song you marked a lot of hearts. You brought joy to a lot of people. You gave people hope, strength, love, courage, and confidence to never give in. There won't ever be another Tony D. Owens in this world. God gave us an angel to brighten our lives.
