Thanks for sharing love, memories, laughter, and tears

To the Editor:

Our most sincere thanks to the Altamont Veterans of Foreign Wars Post for hosting the memorial and arranging the military honor guard held in honor of our beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather Edward Paul Cowley. 

Our gratitude to Darlene Stanton, Ginny Woods, and the ladies’ auxiliary for all their help and care in putting the memorial together and a most delicious meal, Sherry and John Sands for the beautiful floral arrangements, Mary Jo Doherty, Wanda and Jim Gardner, Gay Gill, Melissa Hale-Spencer, Fred LeBrun, Cindy and Jack Pollard, and the many friends who joined us to share their love, memories, laughter, and tears.

We thank you all and would like to share with you this bittersweet poem written by Melissa Hale-Spencer. 

The Cowley Family
Elegy for Ed Cowley
