Today, we go as far as we can go on this earth to lay James' mother's earthen vessel to rest. Her chains of sin were taken away a long time ago when she accepted the Lord as her Savior but now, the chain/cross of the mortal flesh has been broken/removed. Her spirit is free to rise to meet her Savior face to face. No more sickness, nor more deafness, no more pain or suffering, no more sadness. Although she has been with the Savior for more than a week now, we will be saying goodbye today to a Mother, friend and sweetheart. Mary P. Bowe, you are missed, you are loved but you will never be forgotten. There will be death until we get to Heaven where it will be no more but thanks be to Jesus Christ who conquered the grave, death and Hell, we are victorious and live forever through Him, by Him and with Him! I am reminded of Paul's writings in times like this. ~ But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. I Thes. 4:13~ My chains are gone! I've been set free! My God, My Savior, has ransomed me! And like a flood, His mercy reigns, unending love, Amazing Grace<3 My prayers and love to all our family.

I am happy to have worked with Mary Bowe when she worked for the state. I can truly say that working with her brought a smile to her face, as does thinking about her now. A wonderful lady.
