It is with great sadness and joy that we will celebrate your life this Monday but also know
    that I will continue to celebrate you everyday!!!
    I will always remember the fun we had riding roller coasters with you while mom and Tony watched, covering you in the sand at Lincoln City each summer, dragons blowing smoke in my face at the Disneyland parade as you held me tight, your love of cars and car racing, the nickname “peanut” that you always called me even when I was all gtiwn up with 2 beautiful daughtera of my own and especially your beautiful sparking blue eyes that you so graciously pass along to Tony and I.
    I love you today, tomorrow and always until we meet again in Heaven!!!

    To all the Cowdin family, we send our prayers to you during this most difficult time. I never met Mr. Crowd in but I know his son Tony and he is an outstanding individual witch I’m sure had a lot to do with the values he was taught through his father. May he rest in peace.
