The Owens Family send their sweetest Romey home

Our hearts overflow with love and gratitude. The support we received from all of you is hard to even comprehend. In this time of great sadness we have felt held in support, generosity and love. 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you…
For loving us and our sweetest Romey. 

May we all show our love, compassion, generosity and kindness throughout this lifetime and the next. 
Our family will never be the same, but because of all of you we can focus on the things that truly matter.
We love you! We thank you! 

It is with the deepest sadness and humility that we ask for any help that can be extended in this time of unimaginable grief. Jada and I have created this fundraiser to support our beautiful, resilient parents who are trying to accept the reality that they have lost their only son. Our beloved brother, son, uncle, friend, nephew, partner, lover and comedian was so deeply cherished. In these saddest times we hope that financial burdens can be the least of the worries for our parents as they make plans to lay him to rest and navigate this harsh new reality. Romey was a light in our community and loved by so many. Sadly his addictions led him to fall victim to the terrible opioid epidemic and subsequent fentanyl overdose. Our family is so grateful for the overwhelming amount of love and support that we have already recieved. If this teaches us nothing else, may we always tell the ones we love how much they mean to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Rome was so loved and he loved you all.
Until we all meet again,
