  1. Dear Lowry family, I am sorry for your loss and you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort from Gods word the Bible. Acts 24:15 say, “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again. This is a promise form our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of comfort to the family.
