I experienced Ms. Bowen was an efficient and considerate vocal coach. Her spirit, pose and voice will be remembered fondly.
May her family find comfort in the Word and promises of God, The Almighty.
May she rest in peace; sing & make music with the heavenly choir; and rise in glory

On behalf of the Daniel Family
