Sanford what is your relationship to Andre Pittman? My kids have and are attending Valley Christian High School. We heard of the untimely death by going on the school website. No details about the accident.

We are deeply sadden by his death. I understand he was one who followed Jesus so he is in a much better place but it most extremely difficult for those that are still on ole planet earth.

I'm the same age as you and a "military brat". I like your blog. Gods Blessing on you and your kin,

Hi there Sanford Gines Bowie III, I am out surfing for the latest information on family trees and found your site. Although Obituary wasn't exactly what I was looking for, it caught my attention and interest. I see now why Google pointed me to this page while I was searching for family trees related stuff. Not the best fit, but I spent a few minutes reading some of the posts anyway- interesting.
