Brothers and Sisters,

I am sure you are all aware that we lost a Brother and Sister in the tragic accident that occurred in Panhandle, Texas on June 28th at approximately 8:25 a.m. Both were BLET members of Division 299 in Amarillo, TX.

Brother Cody Owens was 52 years old and had worked for BNSF nearly 22 years. He is survived by his wife Cynthia, two sons and a daughter.

Sister Lara Taylor was 45 years old and had been employed with BNSF for 12 years. She is survived by her son Jacob.

This Committee, as well as the entire BLET family, is deeply saddened by these losses and we extend our deepest sympathy to their family and friends. This has been a difficult time and I know that we all grieve for this unfortunate loss.

In memory of Brother Owens and Sister Taylor, we have set up a memorial fund for those divisions or individuals who wish to contribute to the families during this time of need. A gift of any size will help and will be greatly appreciated. To make a donation, please send checks to:

Lara Taylor and Cody Owens Memorial Fund

101 N. Beverly St.

Crowley, TX 76028

Unless otherwise directed, all donations will be divided equally between the two families.
