I can't begin to imagine your sadness. I am just so sorry. I hope you can find peace in knowing that Heaven just received a very special angel, your mother.

Many happy and carefree hours of my youth were spent in the Dowdy's front yard, back yard and porches. I even remember watching the Plymouth Park fireworks from their roof. Mrs. Dowdy must have wondered about our peculiar way of getting our friends to come outside. We'd coo like a pigeon on steroids: "Coo COO!" I still have trouble believing we did that! My condolences to Marty and Van on the passing of your mother. 90 years is a good, long life.

I shall always remember Mrs. Dowdy who lived across the street. She was a simple woman, married, had two sons. I think she and my mother, Mary Ann Jones, looked after each other for many years. My thoughts are with her sons, Marty and Van.
