Full of Love

CANTON — Joshua Hunter Lowe, five-month old infant son of the Revs. Justin and Melissa Lowe passed away Thursday, June 26, 2014, at the John F. Keever Jr. Solace Center in Asheville.

Throughout Joshua’s short life, he was able to light up a room with his smile. He loved listening to music, cuddling in the arms of loved ones, sharing smiles and cooing.  Joshua’s life spoke often, “Be strong and courageous, Mommy and Daddy.”

In addition to his parents, he is survived by maternal grandparents, Michael and Elizabeth “Tilly” Welborn, of Hoschton, Georgia; paternal grandparents, Trenten and Cindy Lowe, of Liberty; an uncle, Jonathan Welborn; aunts, Caitlin Herrington and her husband, Matthew, and Kimberly Blackaby and her husband, Robb; and many loved cousins and family members.

Burial will be private. The family will receive friends from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 29, at Wells Funeral Home of Canton.
