So very sorry for your loss.
To the bower family I'm so sorry for your loss your dad was a very loving man and was always there if u needed him ! It's been a very long time since I seen him but never forgot him! He will be watching over all of you
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

We are sorry for the loss of Reds. He always had a nice hello for us when we lived in Alburtis and walked by his house on our nightly walks. He fixed a few bikes for us and the repairs lasted forever. He raised nice kids, including Scott and Crystal who we knew as kids and bump into from time as adults. Great kids are a wonderful legacy. We are so sorry for your loss and will remember "Reds" fondly.
I am so sorry for the loss of such a great man. I remember Uncle Earl from the Alburtis Park, and visiting him when we visited my Pappy and Memmy (George and Helen Bower). I will miss you Uncle Earl.
To the Bower family. I am so sorry for your loss Pappy was a good man and I am lucky to have known him. Annette DeLong
Sorry I can't make it to see everyone. I Send my prayers and condolences to everyone. I wish I could come. Faye
Pappy, please know that I am truly Honored and Blessed to have been there holding your hand and praying with you during your final breaths. You were always there for me and my family and it was the least I could do to help you with your Journey to meet Jesus. You will always be a special Angel to me! Peace and Love to you always, Karen
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Reds. Everyone in town knew him as the bicycle man. We will miss seeing him at the big Alburtis Park. May he rest in peace. To all family and friends, we truly are sorry for you loss.
Our deepest and sincere sympathy to the Bower Family. Earl will be missed by his friends at Alburtis Park chugging along in his scooter with the puppy in the basket. Rest in Peace Earl and continue to watch over all of us, till we meet again.

My husband and I would like to send our prayers and condolences to his wife and family. We both worked with Reds for many years and he was a hard worker and had a personality that was unique only to him.
We will miss you.
To the Bower Family -
Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. The memories will be your comfort at this time, cherish them.
So many memories. The bower family was a part of my every day life growing up. I was yelled at like all the other kids and loved like one of their own kids. Much love to the entire family. Crystal know that your dad walks with you every day. Thoughts and prayers to all.
The members and friends of Jordan United Church of Christ extend our deepest sympathy and Christian love to Stephanie and Rick, Hailey, Austin, and the entire family at this time of loss. May the peace of the Risen Christ offer you hope and comfort in the days ahead.
Dad - you were always a constant in our lives. As we transition through our loss, know that we have shared many laughs with family and friends in your memory. Your journey has come full circle. May eternal peace be your reward. Thank you for all that you have shared with us. I love you with all my heart and will miss you every day. We all know you will be watching over us as our guardian Angel.
