Another special soul has left us all to soon. Joshua Arthur Bowman, A beloved son, grandson, brother and worst of all the father of this little 5 year old princess.

5 year old Lillianna Skye Bowman is the daughter who's been left without a daddy. Another unnecessary casualty of the horrible opiate problem facing us all today. An innocent child who asked for none of these unthinkable things to happen to her. Unfortunately they have happened and her father is gone.

To compound the situation her Mom is unavailable to take over and Lilly is now in the care and custody of her grandmother (Josh's mom) Karen Bowman. Karen is fully disabled and lives on a meager monthly social security check.

Sadly Joshua lost the battle he fought with addiction. He was a special soul who always made us all laugh and he will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all who passed his way.

Our wish for Joshua's story is for anyone who may know of somebody who is struggling with addiction, that they get them help right now. Please don't even wait until tomorrow. Do it now, tomorrow may be too late and you may not get another chance.

This page is being set up for anyone who would like to help Lilly and her grandmother Karen. She's five years old and she's going to need all the help she can get.

In addition, Josh's remaining family now need an affordable 2-3 bedroom apartment or house for rent in Strafford County. Lilly has a very small dog and a cat. Any or all leads are greatly appreciated!

Thank you all and God Bless!

We're posting rewards today from Lillianna Skye Bowman. She's the unfortunate face of the opiate addiction problem we all face today.

For all of the caring, compassionate loving people that have found it in their hearts to help her cause.

A brilliant 5 year old inspired little girl who has become collateral damage of the war on drugs, by no fault of her own.

Hi I'm Lillybit Thank you for listening.
