You are all in my thoughts and prayers. To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is to never die.

Lowell was the kind of person that once he met you, you were forever his friend... He would greet or acknowledged you everytime he saw you, whether on the street or in a restaurant, and he would always have something to say.
RIP Lowell, I'm sure you have already found another motorhome...

Lowell was one of the first people I met when I began work at the hospital. Like him immediately and had many, many wonderful evenings of eating and chatting. He was one of the kindest people I've known and never had a bad word to say about anyone. A special memory is the evening I invited him and Judy to the Clear Lake Classic Car Show...he knew every model and every year! So glad I had a special visit with him this summer at Good Sam. RIP my friend! You will be breathing only gold now!

Lowell was one of the first people I met when I began work at the hospital and I liked him immediately. We had many, many enjoyable evenings of food and conversation, especially at the Elks. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. One of my favorite memories is the evening I invited him and Judy to the Clear Lake Classic Car Show...he knew every model and every year! I am so glad I had a special visit with him this summer at Good Sam's.
