    Dear Bowes family:
    Our deepest sympathy on the passing of a great lady. Aunt Dorothy was one of kind. I remember getting so excited when she would come and visit my grandma (Olive Belton). The two of them were the best of friends, not just family. I like to think that at last they are together again somewhere playing cards.
    Kathy and Dana Hill and family

    Dear Bowes Family,
    Our heartfelt condolences on Dorothy’s passing. She was a very special lady, full of life, with a great sense of humour, and she was a great story teller. I echo my sister Kathy’s sentiment about Dorothy’s friendship with our grandmother…I can only imagine what that card game would be like. She will be missed, but always remembered.
    Guy and MaryAnn Gamberg & Family

    I was saddened to hear that your mom (and grandmother) had passed on. I wanted to say how sorry I am. I have fond memories of her and can only hope that she’s in a happy place where she can run and dance and laugh all day long. She’ll be in my prayers.

    Love Teri
