Mr & Mrs Lowery were always involved in almost every activity for the youth of
Raymond including church and school. Such a wonderful and loving couple who genuinely enjoyed being around all us when we were kids.
Wonderful Christian examples
Both of them will be missed but are surely being active in heaven
So sorry for your loss, David, Becky and family

Words of prayer and encouragement to ALL of the Lowery family.

Jerry and Virginia were SO vital in the love and encouragement to the YOUTH of Raymond Baptist Church, Raymond, MS.

They were valuable and inspiration to many of us who grew up in the church. They were encouragers and showed us, love, in so many ways.

Our lives were touched and memories will NEVER be forgotten. I pray they will both rest well in the arms of Jesus.
