Owens said “For me, it just feels like we are walking in our purpose. While it’s an honor to be sitting [on the bench] at the same time, I never really thought about us making history but more so walking in the purpose God has for us.”

Grant said “It feels like I am living the life God has for me and I am doing what I am supposed to be doing—just allowing God to have His way in my life.”

They both want to be remembered for helping people.
