To the family, my sincere heartfelt sympathy for your loss.
Though I had not seen Lowell for many years he remained a dear friend in my heart. We met in sixth grade at Mount Sidney and enjoyed many laughs through high school. His laughter and unique sense of humor were a very pleasant and positive quality. I remember sharing a few laughs during a visit with him at RMH during a tough time after his accidental wounding while hunting many years ago. His sense of humor remained and that same unique quality will remain a fond memory as life goes on.

Christine and family - so sorry to hear of your loss. Unfortunately, you are never ready for this, and it is hard to understand. However, take comfort in knowing he is now in the care of our Lord. Thoughts and prayers with you and yours. Take care.

We wanted give our condolences in the passing of Lowell. He was always an outgoing individual. He was also always so friendly and willing to have a good conversation at the gas station, where he loved to hang out. He will be sorely missed.
