  1. I never had the privelage to meet Mr.Fowler but I have worked with his kind hearted daughter Ellen for many years . Knowing how genuine Ellen is I can’t imagine how dad was. I really wish I had met him. Your family has such a special bond and I am sure everyone that has or had the Fowler name is a remarkable human being! I really Love Ellen and I know she is hurting but somehow I know you will all pull together and be the close family your mom and dad created∩┐╜∩┐╜I am very sorry for your loss and I hope you all find the strength to get through this difficult time..God Bless ∩┐╜∩┐╜∩┐╜Kelli Pritchett(was and always will be Ellen’s side kick)

  2. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is never easy dealing with this, so I would like to share a scripture that has comforted me during a difficult time like this; which is Isa. 25:8. Hopefully it will do the same for you.

  3. Please accept my condolences for the passing of your dear loved one. When someone we love dies, the heartache and grief can be great. I hope that you can be comforted knowing that God cares for you and sees your pain. (1 Peter 5:7) ‘He is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) May you find comfort and relief during this grievous time, as you cherish the precious memories of Vincent.

  4. Blanche and I wish to express our heartfelt condolences to the Fowler family. It was a pleasure to have known and worked with Vin in FDNY. May his spirit rest in peace.

  5. I remember Mr. Fowler as my gym teacher at St. Clare’s and for his involvement in running St.Clare’s intramural basketball program.

  10. I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences.When we are grieving the loss of a loved one, we can find comfort from the scriptures. 1 Peter 5:7 promises that God cares for us and invites us to express our worries and cares to Him. So we need to remember to pray.I look forward to seeing Vincent in the resurrection when he will again be enjoying friends/family. (John 5:28,29).I hope these scriptures bring you as much comfort as they bring me.
