Pam and Peter,
We are so sorry for your loss. She was a very special lady. The cemetery service was so well done. A beautiful tribute, and very moving with the bagpipes, fire department and ladies auxiliary as well as the very touching eulogies. We will miss her.

We send our deepest condolences and hugs to the Bowman family. Lucy was a pillar of strength and generosity for those she knew and for those she didn't even know. Her spirit and tenacity was unmatched and allowed Lucy to stand out in a crowd. Her spirit and quality as a giving human being will live on in her children and grandchildren. She will be missed but never forgotten!

Pam, Kate, Peter and families, it truly was our blessing to know Lucy. There are fireballs that we all meet through life that have a significant power of impact. She always had a bright smile, warm hugs and a twinkle when talking about her family and grandchildren. She was so proud of all of you and it was always a pleasure to be in her company and hear her laugh. Love and good memories go on forever and we are all watched over with guidance and pride by many. No one could do that better than Lucy! You were all fortunate to have her and call her Mom. Always much love, Donna & Suzanne
