  6. Dear, Dear Lord - open your arms and provide a safe haven for this family. We can't imagine your pain right now, but we send you our love, along with so many other friends and family. Tears shared with you...but also a smile for the joy and the love Owen brought you. Love you.

  9. My heart is breaking. Praying for you guys.God will continue to hold you through this difficult time.

  10. ahh...tears are falling with yours... We're so sorry to hear of this news of Owen's passing away, this morning. Ultimate healing - yes! - but it doesn't make it any easier to bear. May you find comfort in Jesus' embrace. He will "hold you" and sustain.

    Ian and Ashley - you, both- are the ones who have truly fought a fight. You've fought hard. You've done it together. You have wonderful memories. You'll have questions...sorrow...and unexplained feelings. But, don't give up!! We love you and are with you in thoughts and prayers. Owen, is HOME-FREE!!

    ...tears are falling, with yours...

  11. You are all in my prayers today. May God be glorified despite your pain and loss.

  12. I am so sorry, oh I am so so sorry. Praying for your family....

  13. I am so, so, sorry to hear this. I am praying that God provides comfort and peace to you.

  14. Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
    Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
    Leave to thy God to order and provide;
    In every change, He faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
    Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

    Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
    To guide the future, as He has the past.
    Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
    All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
    Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
    His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.

    Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
    And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
    Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
    Who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
    Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
    From His own fullness all He takes away.

    Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
    When we shall be forever with the Lord.
    When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
    Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.
    Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past
    All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

  15. We are so sorry for your loss. Owen is no longer in pain.
    With love,
    Mandy and Mitch Reinhart

  16. Ian and Ashley

    There are no words to express our sincere sympathy to you and your family during this very difficult time. It warms our hearts to know that you trust the Lord but we also know that it still hurts. Jesus promised to be with us during times like these but he also never said it would be easy. Good things hurt that's why they are good. Our dearest and warmest thoughts are being lifted up for you and may the Lords hand be as comforting as it can be during this difficult time in your life.

    With much love

    Aunt Donna & Uncle Harry

  17. you don't know us, but we are praying for your hearts tonight

  18. You don't know me either but I am praying for you all.

  19. Ashley and Ian, you may not remember me, but I stayed with the Halteman's back in 2005...I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and I hope and pray that God's love and compassion is helping to sustain you both through this hard trial. Please know that I will continue to pray for you both, for your families, and for your precious son, who is in the loving arms of the Father. I'm so very very sorry, and wish I could give you both a big hug right now.
