You were more than just another face in the crowd. You brought a countless amount of smiles to my face, and an amount of love that could never be measured to my heart. We had the biggest of plans, some of which we got to live out, but so many were left to fulfill. You were an exceptional man with such a tender heart. You gave me the best gift I could ever receive, and that was the gift of love. Although, we had the most complicated and craziest relationship, we loved. And we loved deeply. You taught me how to love and how to be loved. Our memories we have together, will never slip or fade. I cherish them will all my might. I still have days where I want to break down and cry, and as much as you hated when even a tear fell from my eyes, I do. But, in a sense I know you are here, telling me I am strong, and that I can do this. And, I know you have a hold of my hand making sure that I do. I hope now you can actually feel what you mean to me. You were, always have been, and always will be my everything. I will forever love you and carry you with me every single day until we meet again. I love you and miss you more than words could ever begin describe.

My sincere condolences to the family during this time of loss. Even Jesus wept at the loss of a loved one. I have found comfort in the scriptural promise at Rev 21:3, 4 and I pray you will as well.

"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise--in God I trust and am not afraid. (Psalm 56:3-4)
Gene, we will miss you so much, your smile was contagious, and always a kind word from you was so sweet. You are forever in our hearts and minds. I pray for your children that they will know what a special Daddy they had. He loved you and was working hard to provide for you and wanted a good future for you both. Brandon we know he loved you and wanted the best for you. I pray God's blessings on your family.

I want to offer my condolences to the Owens family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death, especially when he is so young. Even Jesus gave way to tears when Lazarus died(John 11:35).Take comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father knows your pain. He calls death an enemy and promised to remove it forever__ 1Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” He also promised to awaken our love ones from asleep in death. Notice how this is beautifully expressed at Isaiah 26:19 “ Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Let these promises from our loving Father keep comforting all of you.
