"Honorable Mention      (Nov.  22, 2015)

It was a benison to attend a gathering
devoted to reminisces of Tom Lowell
who was in fact much larger than life
in that strong good humor he exerted
to being so human among his fellows
that they might share in such success
to comprehend the working of things
which included themselves as people.

His astute creativity & inventiveness
near to Tom Edison & Ben Franklin
prime figures of mechanical solution
was but the shore of a vast continent
whose heart contained its multitudes
filling The Marina with his presence
blessing this thanks being given him
that we might better oversee our loss."

May your sadness ease with each passing day. Much love from Cathryn and Grace."
