Words cannot adequately express our sorrow in the loss of Lowell. Someone so special can never be forgotten. May you find comfort in happy memories and in the words from our heavenly father Jehovah found at Isaiah 25:8; “He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces“ and Rev 21:4  “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
