I will miss him more than words can describe. The last of my grandparents he will always be my Grandpa John. My girls loved him and so did I. It makes me proud to call him my grandpa. When I am sad I just think of me and him sitting on the rocks on James A Reed lake early in the morning watching the sun come up and thinking..."is this heaven?" I'm hoping he is sitting up there now sitting on the clouds of heaven with God smiling with my mom, grandma and all his family looking down on us, smiling, laughing and one day will welcome me home.
We have lost a wonderful person. John Bowers was a great Son, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Cousin and Friend. I will forever remember his kindness and his smile. You will be missed John!
I am grateful for the life of Mr. Bowers. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.
