Memorial for James Bowmen

Posted: April 2, 2013 in Uncategorized

On Saturday, April 30, we gathered outside the rest area to say goodbye to our friend, brother, and fellow dreamer James David Bowen, who passed away February 6, 2013 of a heart attack.  He was born August 9, 1958 and became a member of Right 2 Dream Too in early February of 2012.  But he was more than that.   James was a friend always willing to listen and give advice.  He was a brother in the struggle who treated everyone with kindness and fairness.  He was a quiet man, never lost his temper, and always willing to help out.  There was also the side of James that was not evident on the street.  He was a loving husband and father, and was reconnecting with his wife and 10 year old daughter, who was the most important person in his life.  He truly loved his little girl, and I for one will never forget the look on his face when he came back from seeing her after they had been apart for a while.  There was a sparkle in his eye and he was so happy it almost made me cry.  He was also a military veteran and his service should be honored and never forgotten.

Sleep in peace, James.  You will never know cold or hunger or want again.  I hope you are truly at peace now, wherever your journey in the afterlife took you. —- Amber Dunks
