Earlier this week, we lost a great friend.

It is with heavy heart that I pass along the news regarding calling hours for Mr William John Cowie

"His hobbies included raising Siberian Huskies and amateur sled dog racing, recreational hiking and biking; and local politics. Will is on the State of New Hampshire September 9, 2008 ballot for State Representative. He was a member of the Yankee Siberian Husky Club and the Patriot Siberian Husky Rescue League. Will was a true patriot and had many friends and was loved by all, he will be greatly missed and will never be forgotten for his sense of humor, integrity, leadership, and commitment to civic duty.
