It appears, Susanna, that Paul has gotten off on the wrong foot in Heaven. Upon arrival, he got into a deep conversation with St.Peter. . . and before anyone realized it, more than 500 were waiting for hours to get to ( and through ) the gates. Making matters worse, someone contacted God. . . just as He was getting ready for the Final Jeopardy segment of the Champions Tournament. Let's hope Paul can extricate himself from this dilemna. We never saw Paul in his military role. . . and rarely saw him as a Postal Inspector. To us, Paul was another carrier. . . but very different from most of the carriers we had encountered in the prior 20+ years. Well versed, open-minded, thoughtful, considerate. . . and certainly passionate in any and all conversations. We certainly did not agree on every topic, but he allowed us to express our viewpoint(s). . . and he even gave us credit on occasion for a small percentage of what we said. We still find it hard to believe that Paul is no longer with us. We both had ( we still have ) the spirit and vitality that was to bring us to age 107. . . and we had planned ( kiddingly ? ) where and when to celebrate. Would you, Susanna, fill in for Paul. . . and the invitation goes to Sean and Aleksandria, too. Continue to enjoy life, as best you can. Paul would not want it any other way. . . and may send a lightning bolt your way if he sees you ( or the kids ) faltering. Sincerely, Michael Wiese

Paul: You set an example as a devout and caring usher at St. Joseph's church in Cotati. I watched you many a Saturday night at Mass reverently taking the collection and bringing the gifts to the altar. You spoke to me one day in the parking lot of the North Bay Postal Center and were very kind to me as a newly-returned parishioner at St. Joseph's. Your name is in the bulleti n and we all prayed for you as you and your family requested. I will always see your face, your blue jeans and your thermal blue jacket taking the collection in Cotati. Requiest in Pace. S. Joy

My last assignment with Inspector Paul Lowry was doing observation of Christmas Mail at the Sacramento General Mail Facility. Paul fondly recalls the that peaceful, no-stress assignment with me. We'd observe the mail, and then drive home. That was it. We also were nearing the end of our Postal Inspectors' career at the time. He talked proudly about the California Veteran Program that was helping the family cope with school expenses for his kids. He was a good listener, kind and friendly to all. Dios Bendiga my Purple Heart friend! Larry Laurel (US Navy 1972-1976, Vietnam-era veteran) (US Postal Inspector 1980-2004)

Susana, my heart goes out to you, Sean and Alexandria. Your loss is unimaginable. I’ve tried, over the years, to describe Paul to others and failed miserably because he was so many things--wonderful father and husband, staunchly supportive friend, brilliant linguist, intellectual, and above all, a gentle, thoughtful human being. Each time we spoke, I came away amazed at the depth and breadth of his knowledge and his almost childlike curiosity and enthusiasm in learning all that he could about EVERYTHING. I will miss our breakfasts with “the gang,” and with you, Susana, when you could join us. I shall forever feel privileged and blessed to have known this remarkable man and dear friend to my husband Michael and me and I remain heartbroken over his passing.

I had the priviledge of working with Paul on the Internal Crimes Team of the Postal Inspection Service for many years. He was a pleasure to work with, always smiling and pleasant, and with a great sense of humor. He was also very intelligent and considerate of everyone he worked with. I will remember him fondly, as he made allot of blue days at work, "sunny" ones. May God bless your wonderful family and give them peace.... Fondly....Judi

I was Platoon Commander of Second Platoon, Lima Company, 3/26. My Marines knew me as Lt. Froggy. I am happy to see that Paul led an extraordinary and very successful life after the Corps. I only have contact with a few of my Marines but when I was informed of Paul's passing I got the word out to them. It has now been spread to all the 3/26 contacts. We're proud men but we're always sad when a Brother passes. I regret the I don't have any stories to share about Paul from those days so long ago. I offer my sympathy and pray that in the days to come that the sun shines on your face, fair winds blow upon your back and that God holds you in the palm of his hand. May Paul rest in peace. Semper Fi. WFS

I am proud to have served with Paul in Vietnam with 3/26th Marines. I was with him when he got wounded. I regret not reuniting with him in all the years after returning home. Will always remember his smile and being a kind and soft spoken person. Glad to know that he had a great life with friends,family and God not necessarily in that order. Have thought about him often through the years and will never forget him. God bless you and I have the satisfaction of knowing that God has another great Marine at His side. Semper Fi my brother. My deepest sympathy for the family and friends.

Paul was an extraordinary man. Paul was a scholar, a gentleman, and a kind considerate individual. I will always have fond memories of our friendship. Paul always had a smile and cheerful disposition. Paul and I would talk frequently about our experiences as U.S. Marines in Vietnam. I was awed by his experiences. Paul was a dedicated and valiant. U.S. Marine, a true hero. My sincere condolences and prayers to the Lowery family. May the Lord’s perpetual light shine upon you my good friend and as always Semper Fi.
