To the Gower family:
It’s been so many years... But I remember meeting your family in the 60’s when my parents, Don and Gretchen, were friends with Bob and Shirley. Even after all these years I remember Bob’s smile and laughter. I would see this wonderful couple at the fair, and always enjoyed catching up.
Time moves by so quickly, yet some things seem like yesterday. I’m so very thankful for the memories, and so very sorry for your hurt.
My prayers are with you. God Bless. Doug Baker
