Boone Lowe sure made an impression on me. I respected him for his life and service to his country. He would always say to me "let you hair down". He loved seeing people enjoy themselves. My sincerest condolences to his family.

Boone was one of a kind, I only knew him for a short while and he made a lasting impression on my life. Ken, Robbie, Dee and the rest of the family did as well. Please don’t be strangers to Silver Bluff. It was my honor to care for and spend time with Boone. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Robbie and Family, I am so sorry for your loss of this great man. Thank you for allowing Silver Bluff to take care of him because I would have never gotten to spend the time I did with him if he had not been there. I know you are gonna miss him. Ken you were a loyal Breakfast buddy. Robbie don't be a stranger, Red and Ernie need your help with the garden. You were not just a blessing to your dad but a blessing to other residents. Thank you for that.

Such a dear sweet man. He always called me " youngin". I saved new quarters for him. I gave him rides home as he"just lived over the mountain" from me. He would always tell me the light will come on as he got a little pretrude at me for walking him to the door. He was a pleasure to sit beside and talk to at either the a American Legion or the VFW. I will miss him. Condolences to family & friends, he loved you all and always had good things to say.
