Forever Friends

016(Jan) This past week-end we visited with Bruce and Rita Lowe, our forever friends, who we met in Germany in 1972. We became good friends and they became our family. We did many things together as young couples.

Rita was a second mom to our son Brent.





Bruce and Rita came for a visit to Iowa in 1979 and we’ve been able to visit them in Ohio a couple of times since then. This time we enjoyed a full week-end of story telling and laughter, visits across the border to Metamora and Brookville, Indiana where we had a tasty lunch, down into Cincinnati to the Sign Museum and to the Fernald Production Center where Rita’s dad had worked.

We loved having this precious time with these 2 Forever Friends!
