Our family sends our condolences. Uncle Shurley was a fun uncle. We didn't get to spend much time together as family but we always looked forward to the times we did. The Frank Bingham Family

To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including death (Revelation 21:3,4). May you find peace in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about them and bring them back again (Job 14:13,15). May these words from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and strong hope for the future. My deepest sympathy

Thank you Kathy, very sweet of you. I totally agree that there quite a celebration going on now. They are all reunited now and we are sure they are all happy to be together once again. We will miss him as well as we do mom but they are no longer suffering or in pain. We love you dad. Jim and Pat.

Jim and Rick, Sorry to read of the passing of your dad. I was just thinking about him the other day. He was truly one of the greatest generation. I always admired him for his talent of bringing things to life on canvas, paper, or whatever medium. He was very talented. I'm sure the Lowders are having one heck of a reunion on the other side, they're all together again. I hope your memories comfort you in this hard time. Kathy Lowder Robinson
