Mrs. Low (aka Heather), Jennifer, Denise, Scott, Jason & family. So sad the loss of Alex (aka Mr. Low). I have many fond memories of spending time at the family home over the years and last 10 years at Jenn's house. I always felt like part of the family and cherish the times spent with your dad. The stories will remain with me forever. Thank you all for including me in your family. Al will be dearly missed.

We will miss you Grampa. You were an incredibly strong, independent, and courageous man. I remember the first night you moved in with us, almost 10 years ago. I was in high school and it had been a while since my sisters and I connected with you. We were used to hearing about your passionate work ethic as a staff Sargent with the YRP and various stories from my mom, aunt and uncles who would often quote you as the “man of the house” when they were young. Needless to say my sisters and I were a little curious to see how an old school retired YRP officer used to living on his own would mesh with 4 women used to living in a female dominated house. In hindsight it sounds like a plot of a comedy show.

The first night proved to be a test. Brooklyn had some deep concerns about this transition. Days leading up to you moving in she let it be known to my mom (multiple times) that the television schedule needs to remain the same. She broke the ice by telling you that at 7 p.m. we watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You were extremely understanding but equally confused. You asked her “what’s a vampire slayer?”. We tried to explain it but you really needed to see it for yourself to believe what we’re were saying. About 20 mins into the show your face was too funny not to laugh at. However what made us smile the most was your subtle ways. We noticed when you had Buffy turned on and ready to go at 7 p.m. for Brook night after night. And when you voluntarily learnt each of our work schedules and had the car warmed up 10 mins before we had to leave. Or when you would ask about the fella I was seeing (aka Mike) in the early stages of our relationship.

As we grew more comfortable with each other you surprised us in many ways. You shared some stories about our father that we never heard before, took an extreme liking to our animals (Spirit became your best friend, we didn’t think anyone stood a chance against our mom) and engaged in some really insightful and productive conversations on what was happening Nationally and internationally. I personally doubted we would have the same political or social views (based on age and generational differences) but you were a very open and accepting individual. Your ideas and perspectives mixed with your real life experiences were invaluable and I will miss those conversations immensely.

Love you and miss you always,

Logan, Terin, and Brooklyn
