My deepest condolences go out to the Bowling family. Uncle Sherman always had us out to the farm for family reunions and birthday parties. Grandma Ruby use to say it was one of her favorite places to visit. Vivian, he was a great person and always very helpful when the kids needed anything. I am very lucky to have known Uncle Sherman. I still remember his life lessons to us kids on fishing, apple trees, tractors, and of course the history of the area. He was so patient with us, especially taking the 4 wheeler around the property. It was one of my favorite places to go when I was a kid. He was a great man and will be missed.
Viv, I will always remember Shern, you and the fun we
had in Florida. I love you and am praying for you.
Viv, I was so sorry to hear of Sherm’s passing. I will forever be indebted to him for giving a poor college student a job for 6 summers and letting me have his truck to take Becky on dates. He was like a second father to me. My kids feel like they know Sherm because of all the stories I’ve shared with them of my days hanging sliding with him. I’m sorry I can’t be there tomorrow but I just found out today. You and Donnie are in my prayers.
Dear Aunt Ruth and Donnie,
So sorry to hear about Uncle Sherman. Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. He was such a wonderful man and Uncle. I still tell the story on him of him trying to pass off that old screen door for a new one to me when he came up to side our house. He was always laughing about something and always willing to help out others. Sorry we can’t be there.
Love Stacy and Paula
