    I met Lowell and Laurie while running their firm at the mall in Eugene. They hired me and they were both very kind. I went shooting with Lowell a couple times He was always kind and full of wisdom. Sad to see they both have passed. Lowell gave me a very nice compliment one time. He said that his son had passed at a young age but if he were alive he hoped he probably would have been a lot like me. He almost had tears when he said that. A very compassionate man. RIP.
