James Stratton looking for Carole Bowers

I came across this message from James on a Bowers site. I believe the Carole you are looking for is my mother. She recognizes your name and said she has met you before when whe visited Scotland with her mother, Chris, some 20 years or so ago. I have tried to contact you before, thought I would try this way instead of the Stratton email address. Carole would like very much to get in contact with you also. My email address is scnassos@yahoo.com . Hope to hear from you soon.
