To The Dow Family,
I am very sorry for your loss. George Dow was a kind man. I remember how he smiled anytime we mentioned Nora's name. She recently returned from a short hospital stay. When we told George she was on her way back, his whole face lit up and his smile was from ear to ear. We at Aston Gardens will miss him dearly.
