David

This post is all about my brother-in-law David Bowman who passed away Tuesday evening with Alzheimers.
He would have been 65 this month. Too young. This would have been his retirement age. He was a hard worker and a loving husband to my sister Barbara and father to three children and grandfather to three grandchildren.
He was my biggest fan for my business, my little shop hidden in the northern outskirts of downtown Oshawa. He was so excited for me and he used to drop little suggestions for me about running my business. He worked as a financial advisor and had many favourite clients whom he would send flowers to. He would tell me to do the same with my clients.
On Thursday Jan 26 2017, I will be handing out roses in memory of Dave. This is the day of his funeral.
Rest in peace my dear brother-in-law. You are at peace now and away from the suffering.
Amen.
