Dear Jody and family, my sincerest sympathy to you on the loss of Eli, a wonderful man and friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jody, and your family. Carol Drummey

I met Dr. and Mrs. Dow through my Uncle, Jack Drummey, at multiple Boston Latin School events. Despite being so busy overseeing these events, Dr. Dow was so gracious to always take a few minutes to chat with me. I am very lucky to have known Dr. Dow from the 'Classy' Class of 1944. Condolences to Mrs. Dow and their Family.

My deepest and most sincere condolences to Jody and the Dow family in regards to the passing of Dr. Eli Dow. He and my father, Dr. Farahe Maloof, were great friends and colleages for many years at the MGH in Boston. I fondly remember the many occasions when Eli and Jody were at my parent's home in Milton, MA for a get together. My prayers and thoughts are being sent to Jody and the Dow family on this difficult occasion. Stay strong. God, the angels and saints will take care of Eli in heaven. Love to all of you.
