    To Jane and the rest of the St.Cyr family. my deepest sympathy on the loss of Lowell. I knew him to always be a very sweet person thru all the years he worked at the Times and a few times talking with him and Jane after retirement when a group of us from the Times would meet at Cracker Barrel for breakfast on Jane’s birthday. He always seemed so kindhearted and I know you will miss him but he will be always be with you in your hearts!
