Lowe Family

Our life changed on February 23, 2015. My husband Kevin, at the age of 45, passed away. How could it be that this amazing husband, father, son, brother and friend that was so full of life could be gone, in an instant without warning? On this day, I not only lost my high school sweetheart of 30 years and my best friend, my children lost their Dad and the security of our close-knit family. I have mourned the loss of our present life and had to come to terms with losing all of our future plans that spanned from that day forward, to include graduations, weddings, retirements and spoiling our grandchildren. Kevin’s death took something from us that will forever leave a void. By losing Kevin, we each lost part of our identity and our souls.Kevin always met a challenge with a champion’s competitiveness. He lived his life with the same conviction he used in the batter’s box. Kevin always said, "Stay in the box and keep swinging no matter what comes your way.”His example of making a game out of any challenge and to always strive for the best outcome has helped us identify our family mantra to survive our grief. "No matter what, give life your best, laughing and loving along the way.”His legacy of perseverance and unconditional love, along with our faith, family and friends are helping our family to survive the greatest loss we have ever known.
