This memorial page was created to honor the memory of Lloyd Thomas Fowler, known to friends and family simply as Tom. He was a wonderfully kind-hearted and honest man who worked hard for his family. He loved his wife, children, and grandchildren with all of his being and left a lasting impression in the hearts and minds of those he loved. 


If you have a memory of him, please share so that we may all be warmed by memories of his love and laughter.

The 11th Anniversary of your passing came and went...and I barely noticed the date for the first time since you passed away. I'm not sure if that's a good thing, or not. I felt guilty, not because I'd forgotten you, because we both know that could never happen, but because for the first time in 11 years I allowed life to carry on and didn't sink into oblivious mourning.

Oddly, I felt like you'd be proud of me. You would have wanted us to carry on; to laugh, love, and live as before. You never wanted anyone to make a fuss over you, which always made me love you even more. I just wanted to take a moment to write a few words to say I still love you and miss you every day... but I'm okay. For the first time in 11 years...I'm okay. and so are you. (2 of 2)

Today marks 11 years. God I miss you so much. I cannot count how many time I wish you were here. I wish I could hug you, I wish I could sit in your lap and fall asleep while you read one of your big books. I remember one time asking you how you read those, they were so big to me, I couldn't understand how you could get through a book that size. I love you, forever. <3

Well, today it's been eleven years. I still cry when I think about my husband of over 41 years--the father of all my children! I'm remarried, now, and have been for almost 8 years, and my sweet present husband understands my tears whenever Tom comes to mind and tears come to my eyes. Does the pain ever go away????

It's almost 11 years, now, since Tom went from us. I still remember that night in the ER. Oh, so many times he had cheated Death, but that night . . . Tears fill my eyes, still, when I think about it. It was so heartbreaking! He is gone, but not forgotten. Oh, I wish he hadn't had to go!

Today marks 10 years since you passed from this place. I still think of you every single day, without fail. I remember the stories you told me, the lessons you taught...some spoken, some shown through your own good grace and character. I miss you every day.

I cannot believe it's been 10 years. I wish you were still here so much and my heart is still broken. They say time heals all wounds but time only helps you learn how to deal with the pain. There have been so many times that I've wished with all my heart that you could come back, even if just for a day. I love you grandpa and I miss you constantly, cannot wait to see you again someday.

To my grandfather, I miss you every single day. It's been 8 years since you went home to God and it's still so hard. I will love you forever, and I will never forget you. You were the most amazing man in the whole world. I love you and will always miss you, no matter how much time passes. Love always, Tiffany
