    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I am also a member of the Life Force group and considered Bill a friend. Bill was such a wonderful Christian man and always talked so lovingly of his family. Bill helped so many people through the years and will be so missed. Having lost my husband to this same cancer last year I do know the loss you feel and send you my deepest condolences. May you find comfort in the assurance of God’s promise of an eternal home.

    I just learned of Mr. Bowen’s passing, my sincere sympathies to the family – especially Tammie, whom I remember fondly from Lipscomb College days.

    In Christian love,

    Just heard of Billy’s death, and so sorry. I remember Billy well finishing High School together at Centerville in 1955, both involved in Football and Basketball, etc.. Billy always stood out as being very smart and exceptional in many ways. My wife and I wish the best for Patricia and all of the Family in the future adjusting to life without Billy.

    I am so sorry to hear about this. I know how hard it is to lose someone who has been the center of your life for so many years. He was a wonderful person. I lost my husband 6 years ago and I still expect him to be coming home soon. You have my prayers and my love ❤️ Love you all. ❤️❤️❤️

    Patty, I just learned today about the death of your husband, Bill. I am so very sorry our 1958 class members did not know about this earlier. You have my deepest sympathy…to you and all of your family.

    Being in France lots of times, I hired twice from Sixt car hire. I must say, that each times I felt comfort with them! Their personnel was really exceptional. All the representatives were competent. We were given all help we needed. Not more than 20 minutes we spent to pick up our car. After booking, you’ll need just go across the road and pick your car or truck up. It was really good to see the auto that met my needs. It appeared to be the same as I reserved over the internet. Many thanks, Sixt , I obtained an excellent experience concerning auto rental .
