Although I was not blessed with meeting Mr. Cecil Lowry, I have been fortunate to work with and know Larry. Larry, I wish you and all your loved ones the very best as you go through this particularly poignant part of life. You have shared with me throughout our friendship, your belief and your faith, not only in words but most importantly in acts. Knowing your love of God I know you will find comfort in his promise and that you will cherish the gift of Cecil. I wish I could see you today as you greet each visitor and represent your father. Sadness will have its moments but I know there will be happiness based on your faith and God’s promise and I bet a few smiles and hopefully some laughter will prevail as you share memories with friends and loved ones. God bless you.
