The obituary Claire wrote told Mom’s story beautifully with just the right tone. I shared it with her brother and my half-sisters and they all loved it; my uncle cried. I hope it won’t come up soon, but whenever a friend or loved one is writing an obituary or a eulogy I will definitely recommend Claire at The Précis.

Kathy wrote my father’s obituary, she did a great job. I didn’t know where to start, however she took what I gave and ran with it. I could never have accomplished anything that eloquent. I would not hesitate to use her again. Her writing style Is truly a gift.

I recently heard from a friend after quite some time. In her search to locate me, she came across a “wonderful tribute to your dad,” she said. She proceeded to tell me how much she learned about me through Daddy’s story. Once again, thanks and love to Kathy Lowrie, the fabulous writer. Love you, Mindy

Kathy, you’ve written the most eloquent piece about my dad. Considering my jumbled notes and hurried emails, it’s hard to believe you could come up with such flowing prose! I’ll never forget the experience of working with you. You helped me at this difficult time with your humor and genuine concern. I just can’t say enough.

I started following The Precis when a close friend’s obituary was posted. It was beautifully written and a tribute enjoyed by all.  Since then I have become fascinated  by the stories posted by others, from a beloved pet to celebrities to the young man that bravely fought for extra years of life. These are more like mini-memoirs, providing insight to others and including things you may never have known about a relative, colleague or dear friend. Kathy Lowrie wrote my ex-husband’s obituary and did a splendid job! Love her work.

I’m still not able to say much about my son’s passing. Only that I so love the story you wrote, Kathy. I will treasure it forever. I’ll say more when I can bear to think about it. Love, Marylee

Thank you for this lovely tribute to a wonderful friend, Richard Cole. He kept his good humor to the end, and what a sharp mind he had. Dick is sorely missed, and his passing leaves a void in Sonoma. But this obituary keeps him alive. I want to thank you for your expertise and talent.

Ms. Lowrie gave me the support I needed when I needed it. Her obituary on my mother created a memory for my children and grandchildren to always have.  I highly recommend her as someone you can work with easily in one of the most difficult times of your life.
