Hilah Owen Obituary, Death – The pain we’re experiencing cannot be expressed in words. Even posting this on “social media” makes me hesitant. Early this morning, Hilah passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. You have my undying love, as well as that of the kids. Hilah was and still is my true love. She was the most incredible individual. She is my closest pal. She was noble and courageous. a devoted wife, mother, sister, and daughter. She was a change agent who upheld her morals and ethics without wavering. She cherished Jesus above all else. She was never one to follow the crowd and she was always willing to stand her ground. She had a fierce enthusiasm for her family and our kids. If I were half as brave,
She makes me who I am. I had no idea how painful this could be. While I was gardening a few weeks back, I created the movie below. It seems as though God were speaking to me. I had no idea life would become so challenging. But my faith is in God. Hilah is in the All-Mighty’s presence, which gives me comfort, yet I still mourn her terribly. I was overcome by how much I adore Hilah and what a blessing she is to me when I was making the movie and hearing from God. I never gave her the video or described the incident to her. I sincerely hope she is aware of how unique, adored, and missed she is.
There is no better partner I could ask for. I’ll always love you. I stood up in church this morning and led worship songs while crying. My good friend Hilah Sherman Owen, who was now singing and worshiping in paradise, was all I could think about. My timing does not match God’s. My methods are not God’s ways. That was again demonstrated to me when God gave Elijah to our family. Isaiah 55:8 states, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.” I decide to have faith that the same God who brought Elijah into our family and who also took my close friend and sister in death is the same God.
A cherished mother of four, nurse, teacher, wife, and animal lover who refined me (like iron sharpens iron), to be with Him in heaven. On this side of heaven, everything feels too quick. My chest hurts. I am sad. I’m unable to comprehend everything. It doesn’t seem right or fair. This photo was taken during the farewell celebration they gave for us prior to our move. She was by my side during some of my darkest moments. My heart is in such pain. But God is dependable.
