May the friends and family of Mrs. Owen find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

To the family of Ms.Owen, I am so sorry for your loss. Just from reading her obituary I can tell she was a great person. Seeing her Christian background I want to leave a scripture with the family to offer comfort at Job 14:14,15. God is longing to ressurect your loved one because he too loved Ms.Owen. I hope this brings the family comfort.

Dear Elizabeth, I am so saddened to hear of the loss of your mother and my dear friend Ruth. She was so special to my Mom and to me and our family, and she will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with you and your family at this terribly sad time. Much love, Nan

My sincere condolences to the family sorry for your loss. May you find comfort from the scripture at Acts 24:15 where it tells us about a resurrection that will soon happen.
