Mrs. Dianne Anderson It sadden me to hear that Lowell had passed away. My dad worked with him at Atlanta Motor Lines. Dad also lost a battle with cancer. You were teaching when I was in High School although I was never in your class. I am praying for you. Donald Black son of Thomas Black.

Dianne, My heart is heavy for you and your family in the loss of Lowell. He was a classmate and dear friend throughout elementary and high school at Epworth and West Fannin. I'll always remember him as a very kind, smart, witty man. I am so glad I met you at our 50th class reunion and that I am able to remember that wonderful smile on Lowell's face! Wishing for you peace. Jackie Hartness Williams

Dianne, I wanted to share my sympathy with you in your and Lowell's battle with cancer and your loss. I met Lowell many years ago while he was with Atlanta Motor Lines and more recently shared time with him during lunch at Cracker Barrel. He was a true gentleman and will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you during this trying time.

Lowell and I grew up together. We lived next door to each other and were like brothers as we grew up. Life took us in very different directions, but I always remember the good old days when we were young boys building our model airplanes and just being buddies. I couldn't have had a better buddy than Lowell. I thank God that I was fortunate enough to know him. May God grant him a special place in His presence. I know of no one more deserving. May God bless and give you peace Diane. Wally Quintrell
