Expression of Sympathy Jul 22 2019 12:00 AM

Easterling family and Rex Lowe,

I well remember MaryLou from my childhood. My parents left me with the Lowe family while they went to Pennsylvania to have my grandmothers funeral. They were friends with Virgie and Cloaten Lowe, after they had moved to Ohio. I am sure I was under their feet, as most young boys would be, but they made me feel like they were my older sisters. I also was a friend of Rex Lowe, and followed him attending the same university. I served the Akron Baptist Temple for 21 years as a Minister of Music. We now live in North Carolina, and I want your family to know that we will be praying for your family during this time. We sing a song ,"Heaven's Sounding Sweeter all the Time," and this is now reality for the Easterling family.
