Thank you for sponsoring the memorial for Norma Gamble
|B.J. Waters||Lois Bowman.|
I just received a message that you have sponsered her memorial. That is so nice of you. Thank you very much.
|B.J. Waters||Lois Mae Bowman? A relation?|
Hello. I just fulfilled your photo request for your young son. I am so sorry he was with you for such a short time. I just wanted to let you know that someone had recently visited his grave and placed flowers, I would say it was maybe a week or two ago. What was interesting was the grave next to him also had the same kind of flowers, which had been left at the same time. Her name was Lois Mae Bowman. I wondered if she was related. There was no memorial for her, so I created one and added a photo. Let me know if she is related.

I have deleted my entry on your father. I worked with Chester over a period of two years while I was attending Cal State Long Beach. We were both from Kentucky and used to swap stories. He was a real nice guy and died too young.
