    To the Bowker Family:

    I knew Wil from the Parlin Jr High School and until we graduated EHS in 1949.
    Wil was a wonderful person and please accept my condolences.

    Wil usually sat right behind me in the classes we had together.

    When I moved from Everett to Melrose in 1964 it was Wil and the Bowker Movers who handled all the moving for me and my family.
