So sorry to learn of cousin Lowell’s passing. It was easy to see (even with just occasional visits), his love for his dear wife and wonderful family, and his heart for God. As I write this, I’m remembering the twinkle in his eye just before a dry -humored comment on something my dad (Luther Wilson )just said. I’m sad for you all but I know of your hope in Christ. Peace be with you as you mourn.
