We will miss Aunt Mary more than you know. Our love was so deep for her and our memories endless. We are so saddened by this loss and we lift all the Bowdlers up in prayer during this time. Love, Diane, Glenn & Jesse Hoskins
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of Mrs. Mary Bowdler. Grief can be so hard but our loving Father can help us to cope. As 2 Corinthians 4:7 brings out, he can give us the power beyond what is normal. May his love and support help you during this time of grief.
Mary and I are the last of 8 children. It has just been me and her for 12 or 13 years and we loved each other very much. I am going to miss her terribly, even though we did not see each other often. We were there for each other.
