The family will receive friends via a mobile visitation on Saturday, May 30, 2020, from 9AM until 10AM, at West Harpeth Funeral Home on Charlotte Pike.

**What is a mobile visitation? This is just as it sounds. Friends will be directed once entering our parking lot by several of our staff members. From your vehicle, you will be able to sign the guestbook, receive a memorial brochure, visit very briefly with the family, and view Mrs. Dowd (If you choose) ALL from the comfort of your vehicle. With the COVID restrictions in Davidson County still being only at 25 people, this allows more flexibility with numbers, while still being able to pay your respects. We realize this is very different, but has worked very efficiently these past few months.
