One thought on “Sarah Ann (Burton) Owens

  1. Dear Owens Family: Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and grief and has promised that soon “death will be no more.”(Revelation 21:4) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 6:40) Until then, I hope the memories of Sarah and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
