Stephanie I was going thru the obits just happened to see Ms Boles, was so sad that I did not know about before hand. I dearly loved your mother, she was such a great lady, wonderful nurse, very caring person. I enjoyed working with her at Wysongs.Again I wished that I had know this I would have been at the services. I lost mother in January, I miss her so very much, just as you do and will with your mother. Comforting thought is that I know she is in such a much better place and she is now well. Just know you and your family are in my prayers.Love you Linda Barron Merriman, June 2, 2011 I just saw Rae's obit. Mrs. Bowles was my mentor when I first graduated from nursing school, she taught me so much and was the knid of nurse i aspired to be. Reba R Stephens- Houghtlin, June 1, 2011 We send our sincere condolences to Rae's family. Our families (the Evans' and Box's) were friends and neighbors since the early 1930's. Rae was a terrifically unique individual with great wit. The world is a litle less without her in it.
