When Lowell's son, Ronny, brought me to meet "the parents for the first time I was scared. But my fear was quickly alleviated. Daddy was there with a bright smile and a warm, welcoming, hug. He made it clear that he was welcoming me into the family. Daddy never let me feel like an outsider. He is the most wonderful man I've ever been blessed to know. Thank you for loving me, and for blessing my life by being a big part of it.

Your final wish has been granted now. You can laugh and sing and dance on those streets of gold. I know you'll be watching over all of us. And you'll be following right behind Mama...

I love and miss you so much. What I wouldn't give for just one more hug. Until we meet again...
