One of my first memories of Uncle Lowell was visiting him in his RV at the Darke County Fair. He was there for his Mom, Maggie Carter, who liked the fair so much, and we were there to visit with family and to experience the fair too. We had the privilege of seeing him many more times when he would be visiting his sister, my grandma, Alice Carothers, in Florida.
I enjoyed talking to him about gardening, because he liked to garden too. He sent us multiplier onions from Texas, so we could try to grow them in Florida and Tennessee. I always enjoyed his practical knowledge about things. You felt comfortable and cared for when you were around him.
I especially enjoyed seeing my grandma and Uncle Lowell interact as brother and sister. For years after their spouces had died, they would call each other almost every day. Grandma would try to have a joke ready to tell Uncle Lowell and he would often have a good one for her! They both had a good sense of humor! Grandma would often remind us about how her brother had been in World War ll on D-Day. She admired him a lot, and so have I.
It was certainly sad to hear of his passing, but the Lord sure did give him a long life. I am so glad I got the privilege of knowing Uncle Lowell and I consider my life richer because of it. I hope each of you will be comforted as you see and appreciate the Lord bringing him into your life too.
