    Uncle Lowell was one of the kindest people I’ve known. I have many happy memories as a child growing up and spending time at his and Aunt Eileen’s home when we’d get to the UP for a summer visit. He will always be loved and terribly missed.

    Uncle Lowell was a kind, gentle, honorable man and an honor to have him as a relative. Good to talk to at get togethers. Which were few, but in my memory he sure was a nice man. If I am remembered in the same way when my time comes as I remember him, I will consider my life a success. Our condolences to the family.

    Love ,

    Dear Friends,

    Please know that all of you will be in my prayers at the altar on Sunday, as well as thanksgivings for Lowell’s faithful service and friendship over many years. I still remember the great trip to Chicago with Lowell and Eileen when Karen and I were in high school. My regards to all of you, and may God’s presence be with you now and always.
