Dear Mrs. Low,
It’s with great sorrow to hear of the passing of Mr. Low. My family sends our deepest condolences to you and your family. I can never forget the generosity he bestowed upon my family.
You and your family are in our thoughts during this difficult time. God bless you all!
Rest in peace, Mr. Low!
From March, 1974 until March, 1975, I worked as Secretary to the Project Manager, Mr. Carl Leonard, in the office of Tippetts Abbett Marthy-Stratton (TAMS) in Danang, South Vietnam where TAMS was providing consultation of engineering services for highways and bridges to the Public Works of Republic of Vietnam. During this time, Mr. Low served as Partner-in-Charge of the project from the headquarters in New York and had the chance to visit Danang once. The project was abruptly terminated as the North Vietnam government took over South Vietnam in March, 1975. All local employees were left behind.
After the Vietnam War ended in April, 1975, it was very difficult to leave the country. With much frustration, disappointment and patience, we were able to emmigrate. Since Mr. Leonard was occupied with many overseas projects, he asked Mr. Low to provide assistance and help get my family out of Vietnam. Mr. Low worked tirelessly by writing letters of commendation to the Orderly Departure Program and requesting that my family be allowed to leave and come to the United States. Thanks to Mr. Low’s unwavering dedication and effort and with Mrs. Low’s kind support, my family was fortunate enough to be settled in Los Angeles in 1985. As a result, my four children and I received good education and have great careers and better lives. My family and I will always be thankful for what Mr. Low and Mrs. Low did for us!
Mr. Low was such a respectable person! Not only was he very successful in his business, he had a wonderful and long lasting marriage and a great family, He was kindhearted and very generous with his time, money and effort to help people in need. He cared deeply about his community, and even a former employee (of TAMS/VN Project) like myself whom he had only met once and lived thousands of miles away. I am truly blessed to have met such an amazing person. Mr. Low is an excellent role model for others, especially the younger generation.
