Could never see cousins Ed and Bob often enough in my lifetime. They were always a treasure to be around. Ed and Teresa were blessed with a beautiful family and gave them so much to be proud of while they carry on the Bowe Family name. You did a great job, Ed. Rest In Peace!

I remember Ed, Robert and his parents. They were all wonderful people. We grew up on the same block in Gloucester City, though I was very much younger than he and his brother. His parents were good to me, and my family. If my memory serves, Ed’s father also was a model train enthusiast. My condolences to his wife and family. May he Rest In Peace.
