A poem for Ice..

God has wihispered in my ear, to come home. Has held my hand to lead me, to His throne. I no longer suffer, there is pain no more. I’ve joined Him on the other side of heaven’s shore. Weep not in sorrow, please dry your tears. In time your hearts will heal. You had me for many years. God has whispered in my ear, and I’ve beheld His face. He’s taken me home with Him, to Glory. A much, much better place.

With heartfelt sympathy,

Jimmie Bowman, Jamil Bowman

And Shamburger Family

I would like to send my condolences to the Beckett family, and to say that he will be sorely missed by the members of the Chester High School class of “87” and the community. He was truly a good person.

To Marsha and family, this comes on behalf of Jamil Jimmie Bowman. Jamil is incarcerated and had been trying desperately to find his very good friend Ice to let him know….to no avail. How saddended were we to find he had heard the voice of God and went home. Please, please forward this to Marsha and have her get in touch with me. I have Jamil’s address to give her. Again, our heartfelt sympathy. By the way, Jamil is my cousin. May the Lord continue to walk with you throughout your travels. S. Diane Shamburger
