I was so sorry to hear of Rev. Blowers' passing. He was the reason I joined East 91st Street Church. I was invited to attend a Bring a Friend to Church day. As I listened to Rev. Blowers sermon, I felt like he was speaking directly to me. In fact, there were few sermons he gave that I didn't feel that way. Just listening to him speak gave me such an uplifting feeling. He was a remarkable person.

This man always made me feel better about myself and edified my spirit when he spoke. I loved his sermons

and I treasure my tapes of his sermons at East 91st

Street Christian Church. I saw him with friends at MCL

Cafeteria sometimes, and it was always a joy to speak

to him. I deeply respect that he was a World War II

veteran too. I am sad he is gone and that he suffered

in his last days, but I'm happy

April 14, 1957--I was 9 years old when Russell Blowers baptized me. He was my childhood pastor and was a major influence in my Christian walk with Christ. My parents, Pliny and Olive Metsker, and my sister, Kathleen, loved him, too. We moved away in 1962, but I never forgot him. A few years ago my husband and I drove to a church in Wichita to hear him preach, and just this past June, my sister and I were in

What an awesome celebration of life at E91 yesterday~a beautiful 2 hour tribute to someone who truly was a man of God. Everyone's comments and stories and the music were a fitting tribute to a wonderful man. He will be missed and cherished. We feel privileged to have been in his flock.

When I first met Pastor Russ Blowers several years ago, I smiled. When I heard him speak at our church, I smiled. When I first heard of him going to see our Lord and Saviour, I was sad for a minute, but then I smiled. When I read the previous guestbook entries paying tribute to a life well lived, I smiled.

I am sure that God and Pastor Blowers are smiling, too!

Sympathy to Pastor Blowers family here on earth. Know that you can see his smile again someday.

Dear Phil and Paul and families,

My 83 year old father was also a WWII veteran and went to be with the Lord on November 1st-All Saints Day. He was a lifelong main line church goer but did not have the assurance of salvation until last month. Your father was a servant of Christ all of his adult years. I am at peace because I know the Lord does not grade on a curve and both of our earthly fathers are
