I just talked to Lowell earlier in the day that he died, he seemed in good spirits and looking forward to Christmas. I lost my oldest living brother that night and I hope he is no longer suffering and is at peace. We were blessed while he was with us and we will always have fond memories of him. Condolences to Mary and his family.  Ben and Paula Starner
