Ken and Amy Lowry lost their home and their 11-year old daughter, Emma when the 5th-wheel where they were living on Mountain Road burned last Thursday. Emma was a 6th Grade student at Magnolia Middle School.
Bobby Nicholson started a GoFundMe page which reads: On January 30, 2015, Ken and Amy Lowry suffered the loss of their home and belongings to a fire at 1 a.m. Worst of all, they lost their beautiful 11 yr old daughter, Emma, to smoke inhalation. The beloved family pets perished, as well. A red-nosed pit named “Julius” and a cat named “Skittles”. It is without a doubt the toughest time I have ever had to help my friends walk through, and at most times I feel inadequate for I have no experience dealing with the loss of a child. I have set up this Go Fund Me page so that this couple can deal with this tragedy and begin to piece together their life again. At current, they have no where to live, no clothes, and no basic essentials. I told Amy they could use some help, and frankly, they deserve a BREAK!!!
Thank you for your kindness in helping this family move through this transition. I can only imagine relieving their financial burdens for a time will help them find a new nest and begin the long healing process that awaits them.
