From Susan Owens:

 

 

My husband R. C. Owens died of complications associated with AD.  We were married for 25 years.  During the course of those years he suffered through 3 back operations, bolts put into the top of his spine to hold his head in place, knee surgery and along with the deteriorating  back disease the bottom of his spine looked like smashed up spaghetti on the ultrasound image.  Not related to football he was on dialysis for 9 years and eventually a kidney transplant, he also had diabetes, prostate cancer and other stomach problems.  Nine years prior to his death he had Alzheimer’s disease.  In our 25 years of marriage we managed to get through the physical problems with prayer and even at times laughter.  However, A.D. was the most cruel and devastating crush to our entire beings.  He was always known for his sweet, easy going, loving disposition and to watch this person you love turn into a stranger that yelled, swore and appear like he hated me was a hurt that I can not even describe for me and for him.  Anyway, we also applied for disability 3 times (one time with an attorney) and were denied each time.  It is so hard to hear “the fans” state things like, “well that’s what these guys were paid the big bucks for”.  My husband’s pension is $800 a month.  Yes he knew that he could have long standing injuries well after he left the game, but I guarantee,  if someone told him there is a great possibility, from playing football, you will lose your mind and die, he would not.
