I am so upset reading this! I had no idea about this tremendous loss. Eileen was my friend and my sorority sister and will be greatly missed. To the family and especially to the girls and Matt, I am so very sorry for your loss and I know how terrible it is to lose both parents. Especially such wonderful parents... truly a loss for all of us here in Hamilton. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Mrs. Lowell was just so wonderful. She was such a booster for her kids at Taft! She believed in us, supported us, loved our dreams and helped make them come true. She was also just such a lovely person, a pleasure to be around. I will always remember her as one of my favorite people!

Mrs Lowell was always so kind and supportive while I was a student at Taft, and also helped me my freshman year at Miami with English 101. Her son was one of my best friends, and she gave me a key chain as a high school graduation gift that I still use to this day 39 years later. I know her and Bud are celebrating their reunion in heaven.

Mrs.Lowell was my guidance counselor at George Washington,she really helped me get thru some really hard times that no 15 year old(at that time) should ever have to deal with.
I seen her 1 day last fall at Meijer's and I could not believe how wonderful she looked,I am so glad I got a chance to tell her face to face how she made a real difference in my life and thanked her personally.
RIP Mrs. Lowell!
