Our dearest friends: We are so very sorry to heard of Mr BowKamp's passing. He was a good friend to our parents Alex & Marjorie Wallingford (of Vanceburg) and often visited Mother after Dad passed away. Our heart goes out to Ruth and his children. He was a very carrying, concerned, loving man and he will be greatly missed.
