Hello Dad,
I know I'm a day late but there is never enough hours in a day to get everything done. I miss you so much and wish you were here. When I think of you it hurts dearly but to think about the conditions that took you away from me I know you are in a better place. I'm still keeping my word that I promised which was stay in church. I know you are celebrating in your new body with no hurts or pain. You special day your birthday will always be a day I will celebrate. I love you Pops! Forever more!!
Love your babygirl

Dad it’s not a day go by that I don’t miss you. Today is Father’s Day and I know you are not here physically but will always be here with me spiritually. I look back at all the memories that we shared and sometimes question God like why take my Dad?? I can’t let go . It’s really hard to accept the fact and believe that you are gone. We will meet again but until then Happy Heavenly Father’s Day. I love You ❤️

Hi Dad.
Just thinking about you and wanted you to know how much I miss and love you. It’s not a day go by where I wish you were here. I came up to visit your grave the other day wanting you to hear my voice. I know your body is the only thing there and your spirit is in heaven. Continue to watch over me and the kids okay until we meet again. I love you

I can remember when I made sure you had exactly what you wanted for Christmas every year. I only can sit back now and think about the memories we made and share them with others which will never be forgotten. I miss you so much Pop and there is always a place within me that will never forget you as long as i live. RIP Pops until we meet again.

Stella we shared a special man together that was our dad. He came into my life when i was 8 years old and what a blessing he was to me even though he wasn't my birth father he became my dad and im so grateful for him. If you knew him he had the biggest heart and smile his smile would brighten up a room. Rest own daddy you left a lot of love ones behind and we miss and love you forever. You and Lucy are watching over us.

Hi Pop
Another Easter is coming up without you physically being here. I miss you so much and wish you were still here. I’ve been doing what you said before you became ill and went to your eternal home. I owe it to you, myself, and God. Continue to Rest In Peace. Until we meet again

Pops it’s been 4 years. It seems like yesterday because it hurts so bad. I miss you so much and it’s not a day go by that I don’t think about you. I know God did his will but if I can just turn back the time to have you here with me I would. I love you and miss you. Rest on my father. I love you. ❤️

Me becoming a member of a church.

Shared by Estella Lowery on December 1, 2016

My Dad would visit me every or every other Sunday after he attended church which was Brown Hill Baptist Church in Cary Ga. He would sit for hours talking about church and I need to be a member of a church. I would listen to everything he had to say and knew what he was saying was the truth. I got married in June of 2013 and my Dad had a severe stroke in September 2013 and did not recover. He was very proud of me, his only daughter getting married and he having the pleasure to walk me down the aisle. After he became ill it was still in my mind the talks we had about church. I watched my Dad for many days as he lie there not being to help himself but I know one thing he was comfortable because he had the Lord on his side. I did exactly what he asked me to do before he passed away and that was finding me a church home. When I went to visit him I would talk to him even tho he couldn't respond back, I let him knew I had became a member of a church in Dudley (The Church At Dudley) and was waiting on the date to be baptized. He would just smile. It made me so happy to see him smile because I knew I had made him proud of me once again. Pop i'm doing great things at church and I feel like it's all because of you. I want to thank you. Love & kisses until we meet again.
