My thoughts and prayers go out to Brian, Bobby, and their families as well as Mr. Lowe's church family. I treasure the memories of his influence growing up in that church family. He certainly had a way of making the church dinners fun. May God hold you all gently in the Hollow of his hand.

No words can ever express the love I had for Lenny. The relationship we had was beyond expression and he will always and forever be in my heart. I will miss the times we shared as the best of friends and the times we shared, forever. Not being able to see or talk to him, if only in my prayers and thoughts, it will be everlasting.
