    I was so saddened to hear the passing of Mr. Bowles. He was such a nice man and will be dearly missed. I knew Mr. Bowles from the Crozier Post Office and he would bring his dog on occasion. We had mutual friends from the Richmond Country Club as well. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. God bless.

    Sorry to hear that Sam had passed away. He was my first supervisor when I joined the Air Guard and he taught me a lot. He will be missed by many.

    I will miss our chats about investments, golf and travel. Whenever I heard Mr. Bowles distinctive voice,I knew I could expect a pleasant conversation. He was a trustworthy gentleman.

    Judy and family. I have known Sam for many years. We have had great times together. Judy, we were just talking last week about when I first met Carlie and we all were at Myrtle Beach at the resturant together and the waiter asked what my daughterCharlie would like to order. I also remember every evening I would walk into the Club 149 and there was Sam at the same corner of the bar waiting to give me advise. Beleive it, I did listen and it really helped me in life. He will never be forgotten.

    Judy and family,I knew Sam from my first summer working in the Va Air Guard, back in 1976. I was a young single mom with a 9 month old son. Sam was always nice to my son and I. A few years later, Itchy the base mascot fathered some puppies we think he did. Bobby Mantlo talked me into getting one for my son, I did, he was a pretty yellow beagle mix, and Sam was at the Club that day and I named the dog after him. Sam was with us for 16 years. He was a good person and will be missed, but he is with all the other golfing” VaANG family and at peace.”
