I mostly remember Lowell the farmer wearing his bib overalls. I remember among many other things, I remember he gave me a calf one time that was born with only three legs and he didn't wanted because he didn't think it was going to amount to anything so he gave it to me and I read that care it turned out to be a really nice calf I should say dear cuz it got to be about 500 pounds. I remember when other time he gave me a calf it was a heifer and she grew up to be real nice to. Lowell was a nice guy. I remember him and his Farmall h that was his pride and joy lately. There is another story about Lowell that I will never forget, I remember when I was a kid we were standing over at the shop working on the silage Chopper and at that time he did not have much hair he had a little bit that he comes over the top of his bald spot, well a gust of wind came along and blew the hair straight up on his head and has kids said laughed and laughed and laughed Enloe said what are you guys laughing about we finally ended up telling him and he started laughing too. I will never forget that it was funny Lowell had a good sense of humor about things. I'm going to miss him
I have so much memories with lowell. I'm glad I got to meet him when I did. The first time he moved to Asters he was independent and really didn't talk to anyone. After a few months he showed all of us how silly and funny he is. He would invite anyone into his room to talk. It's crazy how you get to know someone in a year. I'm super grateful I was able to have those silly conversations. Your with grandma now. I miss you so much. Until I see you again. Fly high beautiful soul.
You were a very special uncle. You’re almost like a second dad and all of your “kids” are like siblings. We have so many memories...
