I had the pleasure of working with your mom at Point O’View Elementary. She was a great teacher, but also a wonderful friend. She helped me through several difficult times during the time we worked together. Just a lovely lady! Deepest sympathy to all of you.
We were just planning a trip up there to see Aunt Evelyn, so sad we didn’t make it in time. Your South Carolina Fowler family send our deepest condolences. Prayers for your awesome dad too. I always loved talking with him.
