Hello Kaye, just wanted to take this time to Thank you and your staff for your work on Howard Thrower. We did not get a chance to see you. When mom and me went to the "approval viewing" last Sat, we did not know what to expect. The flowers were beautiful and the throw blanket was unbelievably clear and lovely and dad, well, what can I say, He was down right handsome. Mom was very pleased.Sun eve visitation was great, the DVD that Elder Askew put together was great and funny. People loved it.Mon funeral at Good Shepherd was fine also, your attendants, Chris, Ozell, Charles and Hubert were great.Tue, we went to Rittman and that was a wonderful final salute to dad. So, as Mom said, God had been good to the family. You may share this email with the others. Glad we selected Gaines.Thanks again and peace to you and your family. Dorcel Thrower-Dowdell
