Sweet Memories

For Carey's memorial service, a couple of talented family members made both a video tribute and photo montage.  They did such a beautiful job capturing the fun (and crazy!) essence of Carey.  I wanted to post these here on the blog for those who weren't able to attend the service, and of course, just for keepsake purposes.  Enjoy 💛

Memorial Service

On Thursday, November 24th, Carey went on to his 'next great adventure' - as he liked to say.  Thanksgiving will hold a new and special meaning to our family as we thank God for the precious time we had here with Carey, and for the eternal hope that we'll be home together again someday.

We will be gathering to celebrate and honor Carey's life on Sunday, December 11th at 3:00pm.  The service and reception to follow will be held at the Apex Funeral Home - 550 W Williams St., Apex, NC 27502.  All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, our family suggests that memorials in Carey's name be made to the Sarcoma Foundation of America (use link), or contributions can be made to the Carey Bowman scholarship fund through the Autism Society - checks can be mailed to the address below:

Autism Society of North Carolina

Approaching the Finish Line

I’m heartbroken to tell you that Carey is now in his final days.  He is resting comfortably in a beautiful hospice home not too far from our house.  I’m posting this simply to ask for your faithful prayers as this is all much more unbearable than anyone could have imagined.  My best friend, who has given me so much comfort and strength throughout this entire journey, now lies peacefully and quietly.  We are savoring every moment with him.

Please pray especially for Eli and Carver as their little hearts are trying hard to process what is happening – and that momma would have the right words at the right times. 

Thank you, loved ones, for the continuous support and hugging our family tight with love from both near and far.  Our hope lies not in this broken world, but rather in our eternally gracious Savior.
