Don and Family, so very sorry to hear of Lois's passing. She was a very nice lady who was professional in her work at the bank, but was fun to be around other places. One could tell how much she loved her music by the twinkle in her eyes and the smile on her face. May God be with you during these diffi-cult times, and bring you please and comfort. In Christian Love, Pandora

My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Lois Bowman. I have always had the warmest and loving thoughts of Lois. I met her at our exercise classes. She always tried to do her very best. Rest in peace, my friend. I'm so sorry I couldn't make it to see you one last time but we had to go out of town and just got home. I know you, of all people, would understand. Love and eternal rest.

Donald,

I have a relative named Donald Bowman that I have not had contact with for years. If you are not him, I sincerely apologize for this distraction during your time of sorrow.

My name is Bob Cuschleg, Jr. My father was Bob Cuschleg, Sr. My father had three sisters, Margaret, Grace, and Ducie, and I have a cousin named Bob Modrick, who died a year ago. I am also related to the Kluski family. If any of this is familiar, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Again, if you are not the Donald Bowman I am related to, please accept my apology for intruding.
