"Let´s Get It On!"- I could hear her saying this right now. My heart was saddened today when my mother shared the news. Not just because she is gone physically but I was just thinking of Her about a month or two ago and didn´t get a chance to deliver that one call to tell her I appreciated her while growing up at Progressive. For always greeting those and giving them those welcoming arms. Ready for fun, claps, and laughs at any moment. Holding the front row of the alto section down. Ms. Lowery you are and were a gem. Thank you. -Lolita Ellis
