    Sorry to hear that grandpa has passed. He all waits treated me with energy, knowledge and respect and I never met a man that was in such pain but always showed me grace and a thing or two!

    So very sorry to hear Lowell Sr. Passed away. He was such a nice person, always smiling when he would come pick Cody or Chase up from day care, if you stopped by to say hi as he was sitting out front he would be such a pleasure to speak too. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and loved ones.
