    My wife and I have been Blessed to have been neighbors of Cyrus for almost 20 years. We are going to miss him so much. When ever we were doing home improvements on our house he would always come over to "supervise" or just make comments on our progress with our efforts to upgrade the house he started on. Our thoughts and Prayers to the Lowe family. Martin & Kat Eckhardt
