    Jim Lowden will always hold a place in my heart. He was the best! I shared the story with my daughters of the first time I introduced my boyfriend (now husband of 31yrs)to Jim. Shotgun laid out on the table and he was straight to the point. “What are your intentions?”
    It was important to have his approval. I am sorry he is gone from this world, he will be missed but we will meet again.

    Jim has been my neighbor for years. But he was so much more than that. He was a true friend, buddy. confidant, sounding board, and highly respected man. I will miss him deeply and hope the fish are taking his line every cast and he’s reeling them all in.
