I'm so glad I read the paper. Amanda Bowles Wilson, December 22, 2009 I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Bowles passing. I met him while visiting my uncle and father at Clyde Cosper. Mr. Bowles would share his candy with me and I would share donuts with him. He was such a kind man and I always made it a point to stop in his room and have a chat. My uncle and father both passed away a couple months ago and I have not seen Mr. Bowles since then but have thought of him often. My thoughts are with you. Stephanie Wood, December 21, 2009 Rae, Stephanie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you!
