I just found out that Lowell had pasted. I am very sad to know this. He and I worked at the old St. Micheal Hospital. I worked in MICU and would see and talk with him daily. He was one if the most dedicated Doctors I've ever known. Our other connection is we were both from Ft. Worth. He knew my cousins and went to school with them. He and my cousin Jon Gatewood were buddies in school at White Settlement. My last thought is, this man truly cared about helping and making well his patients. I miss him. RIP Dr.Vereen.

I know you are having a wonderful time in heaven, give hugs and kisses to Eula, Gwen, and Curtis. I know yall are having a Dubuis reunion. I hope you knew how much you meant to us at Dubuis and to me personally, you saved several of my family members and more patients than we can count. Our world will never be the same without you. Texarkana will never be the same without you. There will never be another one like you.

Dr. Vereen is missed by so many. He was my Dad's doctor and he passed to Lung Cancer 12 years ago. My mom has been his patient for years, when she heard the news it broke her heart. I would always go with my mom to the doctor and go into the office with her. The first time I met him, I told my mom that thier was hope for my son, she looked at me puzzled. I said my son can be a doctor..he mumbles too. We could always tell when Dr. Vereen was in a good mood because he would joke with us. We are forever grateful for the care he gave our dad and mom. My mom doesn't know what she is going to do without his expertise. Praying for his family, friends and patients.

Dr. Vereen agreed to be my husband's primary doctor last year when he became critically ill after having a Triple A surgery. Because of him and God's will, he is still with us today. Dr. Vereen nursed him through 4 months of illness and rehab from January to April of 2011. We were in the hospital waiting for him to make his usual early morning rounds when we heard the sad news. He was a wonderful doctor and we will miss him so much. I just hope he knew how much he was loved and respected by so many people. My heart goes out to his family and all who knew him. Dr. Vereen, may you rest in peace.

What a tremendous loss for the entire Texarkana area, Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. I visited many times with Lowell over the past 22 years. He cared for my late mother just like she was his own Mom and had tears in his eyes when she passed. He also cared for my late brother. We trusted him completely and grew to love him like family. We often joked with him about his bedside manner... but he was so dedicated and hard working, his heart was truly in the right place. God Bless you Lowell.

It was an honor to work with and have your brother as my grandmother's physician. He was brilliant, caring, thoughtful and the best physician/person. I will miss you. Too sad to go to his viewing but one day will come to poolville and visit him there.

Penny Stanton
I am so sad for your loss, Dr. Vereen had been in my life for over 20 yrs in one way or another, ex: taking care of my grandmother, mother and other family memebers and as a nurse at wadley every morning when he made his rounds and yelled out where the nurse for so-in-so. Dr Vereen was an excellent physician and one who cared greatly for his patients,he would never give up on anyone, when everyone else had. He will be greatly missed by us all and the patient that he served. My mother passed in March and when I got the news of Dr Vereen passing, the first thing I thought of was he was in heaven talking with my mom and grandmother and probably all the other patients that he took care of, he was a great man.

Lowell
My brother, son of a preacher and his fourth grade teacher, was marked above the rest. God made Lowell with special quality that made him one of the best.
Like his mom, he was handsome and small.
When he was in high school, he wore elevator shoes to make hime feel tall.
But like his dad, he was always on the go.
And he never knew the meaning of slow.
If you wanted to see Lowell, you must be quick,
Or you will miss him in a blink.
He was strong as an ox,
And witty as a fox,
And rule with dignity,
And always thought outside of the box.
He had a passion for riding horses and a heart for more than a lovely young lady or two.
With the great mind, what did he do?
You wondered.
I will give you a clue.
If you pay him a visit in the city twice as nice, Texarkana, he might tell you, "Here let me listen to your lungs. Take a deep breath and breathe out. Okay here is your prescription. See you later."
Well he was the lung specialist.
And he was the best.
He was loved from the beginning to the end.
And he had a heart to be your friend.
Every time he came home for a visit, Mother made her best effort tto put on the fried shrimp, homemade rolls, French fries, pretzel salad and the Blue Bell.
Wow what a feast and a celebration. It was a rejoicing time to see Lowell.
And you always felt blessed when we all left Dad's and Mother"s.
Yep, Lowell was one of a kind. There was no other like my brother.

Dr. Vereen was truly one of a kind. Not only was he special to his patients but to his co-workers. I learned more from him than all the other physicians I've worked with put together. He will always have a special place in my heart. He truly cared about us. I remember when I left Texarkana and started traveling he called me while I was in Arizona just to check on me. Those small gestures I will always remember. Rest in Peace dear friend. You will never be forgotten.

Texarkana will be at a loss without Dr. Vereen. In 1991 I was in the hospital with pneumonia. He admistered a chest tube and I had to be on a ventilator for several weeks. He would make his rounds in the wee hours of the night. The story at this time was if anyone could get you off the ventalor it was Dr. Vereen. He will be greatly missed and it will be impossible to fill his shoes.

Becky Gillenwater RN
Farewell to my friend. I can barely believe I am writing on your page. With a tearstained face and at times burst of laughter I remember our time together in SICU and Dubuis. I began my nursing career in 1997 in SICU and my wonderful preceptors put the fear of God in me about Dr Vereen. The first time I had to call him critical labs I was TERRIFIIED My preceptor ""(Ross)" was standing next to me when THE CALL came. I reluctantly answered and said yes, yes sir and hung up. Ross asked " what did he say???" I told him I couldn't understand a single word!! Bahaha. I thought short career hmmm. Great start huh. I improved greatly because Dr Vereen raised the bar. He demanded excellence. I met that challenge and I am a better nurse for it.
I have lots of Dr Vereen stories just as many have posted. My favorite is ice storm in 2000. We were in a mess and Dr Vereen shows up in SICU rounding in ski bibs. I gently walked around the counter and took a peak. WOW and of course he had his lab jacket over it. We started snickering and he got mad and said y'all are sodumb. Bahaha. He was so funny and didn't try. He along with other docs were taking staff to and from work. He told me he would take me home and I relunctantly climbed in that Dually. I was almost home when he dropped another nurse off on Hwy 82. I told him not to back up and HE DID IT ANYWAY and we got stuck!!! His brilliant idea was for me and Cindy to get out, climb in truck bed and start jumping up and down while he floored it. Haha we were a sight to see. People were going by and starring. Finally a couple of guys helped us out. Never a dull moment.
Great memories lots of laughs. I'll miss him. When 7AM came and he didn't come through our door, deep inside I knew something was wrong.
There will never be another like him.
Happy trails until we meet again

I was a Pharmaceutical Rep for many years and had the opportunity to get to know Dr. Vereen. After a while, I realized what an amazing physician he was, and I would tell anybody I knew, that if they ever needed a Pulmonologist, he was the ONLY one to go to. He will be greatly and sadly missed! He was my Mother-in-laws doctor, and I must say, he knew how to care for his patients! RIP Dr. Vereen.

Bill and Diana Logan
What a man..... Dr Vereen was the first Pulmonary Doc I meet some 25 plus years ago when I first started working in the ICU. I remember him making his 0230 am rounds through the ICU and we would have his charts all out on the counter awaiting his arrival. Back then I also remember never being able to understand him because he mumbled so, so after a week or two I finally would answer his mumbles with mumbles and from that day forward he always spoke clearly to me. I dearly missed him when he left us several years ago to try early retirement and mainly to take care of his Mother. But it is really going to be harder this time because I know he's not coming home again. I will see you again my friend and tell Brenda hello for me, I know she will be standing at St Peter's gate saying, "Good Morning Sunshine", like she did so many mornings before..... It always put a smile on your face and I know seeing her again will do the same..... What a man

Dr. Vereen, "Zoom", you will be greatly missed. Texarkana's medical community will never be the same without you. It's still so hard to believe you are gone. My first memories of you were as a new grad about 18 years ago, you scared me to death!! I'll never forget you throwing a chart down the hall & the time you slung every x-ray out of the box because the one you needed to see wasn't on the viewer (thank goodness neither times were my fault). It didn't take me long to realize that you weren't a tyrant, just a very busy, brilliant, & gifted physician & teacher who paid attention to details. You were a perfectionist & a genius. You took care of your many patients like they were the only one & you expected the same from the nurses & respiratory staff. You loved your patients & they loved you. You mourned over everyone that was lost and now we all mourn your loss. So very tragic. Not sure who will fill your shoes, I doubt that any one ever will be able to. I'll never forget you. You've made such an impact on so many lives, I pray that you know how much you were truly loved & respected by so many.
My condolences to the family. Thank you for letting us have him as long as we did.
I asked him once when did he sleep, because I don't think he ever did, he told me "between 10 & 2, that is when the ER lets me." Now he is finally at rest.

06/19/2012
Shelia Kirkpatrick RN
Dr. Vereen was sure to have heard the words "Well done my good and faithful Servant" when he made the journey to Heaven. He knew his business and performed his job well. I admired his knowledge and expertise so much while working with him as the Respiratory Team Physician at CSMHS. He was not afraid to make the unpopular decisions to improve patient care. He was truly a gifted Physician and will be missed by so many. Condolences to his family, friends, and staff. Until we meet again...

Jeanna Paulette Jenkins
The first time I saw Dr. Vereen was some 20 plus years ago. I was in the hospital and he came in and sat down in a chair by my bed and began to tell me what kind of doctor he was and that he would be taking care of me. After he left, my husband said what was he saying. He talked under his breath. I told him I did not understand every thing he had said, but I liked him. Sometimes it's hard to think of our doctors a just regular people. Dr. Vereen was just a regular person with the talent to care for his patients in a special way. My smypathy to his family.

Dr. Vereen was a great physician. He will be missed by many. We all at one time or another in our early nursing years was scared of his bark. We got passed it and found that all he wanted from us as nurses was to do our job, just as he did his. Excellent!! He was a super pulmonologist and took great care of his patients. I will miss his morning rounds. Goodbye, Sunshine.

Dr. Vereen was a excellent doctor and one to definitely learn from. When I was a student therapist at st Michael's and wadley he was great about working with students and understanding we were new at patient care; however he still wanted to see us succeed. I will never forget him and his many jokes. The bronch lab was always fun when he was around.

The family of Klaudia Sloan wants to express our sincere saddness and condolences to Dr. Vereen's family. He cared for our sister for over 9 months and extended her life giving us more time for to be with her until she went home to be with the Lord. Without him and his caring and compassion we would have lost her sooner. The community of Texarkana will greatly miss Dr. Vereen and as previously stated by many, a wonderful doctor and true and genuine human being. We will not forget all he did for our sister and his last words to our family was he enjed taking care of her. Words that made it a little easier to let her go. He also was a supporter of family and the Peace Lily he sent to our family in remberance of her clearly states how deeply he cared for the patients. Words cannot express our gratitude to him and we will be forever grateful to him for all he did for our sister. May the perpetual light shine upon him as he was a good man.

What to say about smiley that has not already been said. When I moved here from Illinois in 2006 and began my career in the ER as a nurse I received many warnings about having my "ducks in row" before calling him about a patient. Needless to say, the first few times I had to deal with him I was terrified. But it took no time at all to realize that this man was harmless and a warm caring individual. He has taught me so much over the years regarding critical care. I still cannot believe he is gone.. He is a hero as others have stated.. he was a hero to his patients and anyone who came in contact with him in the medical field. You could call him at 3am and he could tell you all about a patient off the top of his head... allergies, medical history, etc... He will live on in all of our hearts.. He was a top notch physician and a dear friend.... You were supposed to take care of me when I got old smiley! ;) I know you are running the streets of heaven sockless and with your big toes hanging out of the holes you cut in your tennis shoes... rest in peace until we meet again..

I am extremely saddened by the passing of Dr. Vereen. He was, without a doubt, one of the smartest people I've ever known. I learned so much from him, and I think I'm a better nurse because of him. He cared about each of his patients as if they were family. He never said very much, but what he did say meant a lot. You will be missed by everyone, Dr Vereen. Things will never be the same without you. R. I. P.

I can't really say much that others haven't already said. This seems so unreal and unfair. It is so sad to have lost Dr. Vereen. We all know here what kind of person he is. But I am thankful so very much for all he did for not just me as a nure and a patient's family, but for all he did for people and medicine in general in our area. He made us all better people in various aspects. He is one of a kind. I respected him then and respect him even more now. And it feels good to think that I was respected by him as well. He will be a long lasting memory and legacy here. His compassion and dedication will be irreplaceable. They just don't make like him anymore. I learned a lot from him and am deeply saddened that he's no longer here to teach or to care for all of us. Thank you Lord for sharing this man and his knowledge and those healing hands. He was truly of gift and working man of God. The famous saying around here was: "if anyone can bring 'em back it's Dr. Vereen's." Truly missed already but not ever forgotten.

We miss him so much already. Dr. Vereen has taken care of at least a dozen members of our family over the past 20+ years. We all loved him. With him, we knew we had the very best care available. Whatever problem we might have, he always found it and took care of it. There will never be another like our Dr. Vereen.

The L. W. Swope family would like to extend heartfelt condolences to the family of Dr. Lowell E Vareen. Daddy (L. W. Swope) was diagnosed with interstitial vibrosis of the lung in 1992. While initially given about 2 years to live, he became a patient of Dr Vareen and lived until February, 1998. We were told Daddy, at one time, held the record, in Arkansas, for longevity of life while suffering from this incurable disease. Daddy was an avid horseman and, in his later years, dearly loved cutting horses. We like to think Daddy was instrumental in igniting Dr Vareen's cutting horse passion. And we are certain Dr Vareen was instrumental in Daddy having additional years of life. Our sincere sympathy to the family of Dr Vareen. He will be sorely missed!

My brother Mike Porterfield spent his last three weeks before he went to Heaven under the care of Dr. Vereen. At first Mike complained that he couldn't understand a word Dr. V said and that Dr. V zoomed in and out at 4 a.m. However, when Mike was asked if he wanted someone else Mike said "NO! I like him! He grouches at me and I grouch right back. He's a hoot!" They talked about horses and told jokes. Mike knew he was in good hands. If you asked the nurses about Dr. Vereen the reply would be "If I were in that bed and gravely ill, I would want to look up and see Dr. Vereen standing by my bed." That said it all about this great doctor. He was the best and from the outpouring of love I've read on this page, he was loved and respected by his peers and his patients.

Dru Pipes Reeder
So surreal to think of signing a guestbook for Dr. Vereen. It's just doesn't seem right. What great respect and appreciation I have for this wonderful man, and his staff at the Pulmonary Clinic. Dr. V took care of my mom through 11 years of COPD until her death. She loved him so much, and I'm sure she gave him a big hug when he arrived! I believe it takes a special person to work in pulmonary/respiratory, as these patients can become ill so quickly. Dear God, thank You for letting us have him if only for a brief shining moment, be close to his family & friends at this time; give them comfort & peace. Rest well dear friend, but we'll never be the same without you.

I've worked at Christus for 20 years. Many of my co-workers even longer. We can probably count the days on one hand that Dr. Vereen didn't round on his patients in those 20 plus years.

Thanks for giving life to so many others.

I have had the privilege of knowing Dr. Vereen since he came here back in the 80's. He was always such a great caring physician and his patients just loved him. I remember one time a patient called him and Dr. Vereen went out to the patients house and picked him up and brought him to the emergency room. He truly cared for his patients. It was great working with him and I will miss him dearly! My prayers are with his family and his clinic.

Dr. Vereen will be missed by a lot of people and will also be remembered for another lifetime. He was one of the docs that if the nurses ever got together and wrote a book about the things we have seen and been through, he would be on almost every page. I can remember him telling me a joke one night in SICU and he got so tickled he could hardly tell it. It was great to see him laugh. He will be greatly missed.

He quickly taught me when I started working with him 13 years ago that the patient comes first.

Ashley Jackson, RN
I had the privilege of working with Dr. Vereen for 2 years at Christus St. Michael Health System when his patients were on the floor I worked on (6 North). He gave us nurses & respiratory therapists a hard time, but it was because he wanted all his stuff (lab results,chest x-ray results) on his charts and ready for him. We had to have the chart on top of the countertop at the nurses station near that patients room for when he made is early 4am rounds. He was very particular about what he wanted. If you ever messed up once, you didn't do it again :) He also wanted his nurses to know his patients too. He would ask us questions about his patients knowing he already knew the answer....he just wanted to see if the nurse knew the answer also. We (nurses and respiratoy) all gave him a hard time as well about his handwriting! Oh man, we could go on and on about his handwriting. It was so difficult to read and he knew we had a hard time. When he would round, we would have to stand right next to him and watch him write orders and most of the time he would mumble (oh the infamous mumbling of orders!) the orders as he wrote them down because we couldn't understand what he was writing. He may have given us a hard time but deep down we liked it!! Because that's just Dr. Vereen. If he gave you a hard time or picked at you, you had to give him a hard time back and he liked it! Dr. Vereen also took care of my grandfather while he was sick with pneumonia this spring. I wouldn't want any other pulmonologist but Dr. Vereen to take care of him because I knew that he was the best! He was a great doctor and he will be greatly missed!

Our precious Dr. Vereen…

New patients would come back to me for xrays and would ask -“Is he a good doctor?”- and I would tell them there are a lot of well trained physicians around but he was “Gifted.” He was blessed with a God given gift to do the work he does.
He was valuable to all that were fortunate enough to work with him. He took care of us and our families when we were in need -even when he was supposed to be on vacation. He was the doctor that other physicians sent their people to when they didn’t know what else to do. He was the “needle in the haystack” kind of person that got down to business to find the answer.
As a member of his office staff, we were so fortunate to be what we called his “extended family.” We tried to take care of him as much as he would let us. We were all so lucky to be a part of his life and career for so many years.
He was truly a very precious person we lovingly called “Sweetie” for so many years. We are so glad we told him we loved him every day. Our office and our lives will never be the same.

He was always a caring and devoted doctor and person. He put his patients first and was the kind of dr that one can only hope for. He was a healer. My heart is heavy for the lose to the community and his co workers. Too bad there aren't more like him. He will be greatly missed.

Dr. Vereen, you were and are my hero. How will we ever get along without you? Without you, I would not be here today. I will never find a more caring or more dedicated doctor. It is time for you take it easy and take some "me"time, but I bet you are already setting up a new practice there in Heaven. You made this world a lot better place to live in and you will not be forgotten.
All my love goes out to you and your family.

Ever since I heard the news about Dr. Vereen I have been remembering all the things he taught me both as a nurse and a human being. I am a better nurse because of him. He was one of the most caring physicians I have known even though his outward facade showed nothing of the gentleness of his spirit. I could always count on my patients getting the best care possible when he was only a phone call away. I hope they find a huge church for his funeral because it's going to be standing room only - I don't know of anyone in the Texarkana area who hasn't had someone in their family who has benefitted from Dr. Vereen's expertise. He will be missed for a very long time. My prayers go up for all of who knew and loved him.

I just want to say to the dear families of our Dr Vereen, thank you for sharing your loved one with us for all these years. I know that his dedication to his profession and his patients took him away from you on many a holiday and special occasion. He was loved and admirated by so many here. If thru the years your own memories of him start to fade please come see us at CSMH in any of the ICU's anytime of day and there will be nurses and patients that can write a book full of stories of his greatness, his humor, his kindness and of his incrediable gift as a healer.

My heart absolutely broke when I heard the news of his death. I have worked with him for 12 years and have learned so many things. He always wanted the best for his patients and paid attention to details. He brought them the little things they may want or need. He always went the extra mile. He never forgot anything. He cared for his nurses as much as we cared for him. I admired and respected him. Though my heart is heavy, he is able to rest now. I will miss him dearly.

He was a great Dr. He put in so much time with his patients he really didn't take time for himself. He is the Dr I trusted to care for my parents. Now, my mom just diagnosed with cancer I am at a loss. We need him. And unfortunately he is gone. He will be missed.

I met Dr Vereen in 1997 when I graduated nursing school. I was the only new nurse that didn't fear him or shy away. We bonded after bumping heads many times. I used to tell him I loved him every morning when he made rounds to make him smile, and he eventually began to say it back. I will never that smile. He was a talented and gifted doctor. He will be truly missed by many. Texarkana lost an angel, but God needed him more. He always told me he was tired, but now he can rest in the arms of Jesus. My prayers are with this family. May God bless and keep you during this time.

Dr. Vereen you will be missed! It was a privilege knowing and working with you over the years. Your dedication to your practice and care for your patients was awesome to witness. There was never a time that you didn't give of yourself to better the lives of the patients you touched. We will not forget the sacrifices you made and the wisdom you imparted to us all! Our prayers are with your family during this time!

I an at lost for words. The medical community is not going to be the same. I met Doc in 1989 at WRMC where I was an ECG tech and later became a Resiratory Therapist in 1992.He taught me so much and gave me a chance at Health South when we started The Pulmonary Rehab Program around 1995 or so.He was the most loving caring Doctor I have ever known in my life. We became very good friends with mutual respect. I loved him so much for his dedication. I always begged him to slow down and he would say someday I am going to take a trip around the world Now you can!! RIP

You will be greatly missed my friend. Rest in peace.

Even tonight I still can't believe Dr. Vereen is no longer with us. It was an honor to start my career as a respiratory therapist working with Dr. Vereen. He was one of the best physicians I ever met and always truly did what was best for his patients. I feel honored to have worked with him and to call him a friend. Heaven has gained a new angel today. My prayers go out to all his family and friends.....

Dr. Vereen you will be missed tremendously. You made such big impacts on many people's lives. There are so many people that looked up to you because of your intelligence.I only had the privelage to work with you at St. Michael's for the past 2 and 1/2 years. You was also my grandmothers doctor 20 years ago when she had lung cancer. When I first became a MT and I tried to read your beautiful handwriting I thought to myself there is no way I will ever be able to read this. After being there for about 6 months I could just skim through with no problem. There's so many laughs that were made and so many memories that will forever be in our hearts. Your still the #1 Doc in Texarkana! RIL Dr. Vereen "Sunshine"

This really caught me by surprise tonight. Dr. Vereen was one of the best physicians I ever had the privilege of working with. He was a friend, and someone that we nurses could always count on, no matter what time it was. None of us will ever forget his EARLY morning rounds (for us it was still night shift!), and most of all the exceptional care he gave every one of his patients. You will be missed, Lowell! RIP!

Anyone that has ever worked in our medical community and has worked with Dr. Vereen could tell you stories they will never forget about him. His loss comes as a shock to everyone and he will be missed greatly. Hopefully, he can look down and see the outpouring of love and respect that everyone had for him and his family can see the impact he had on our community.

I have known Dr. Vereen for many years. He has taken very good care of my family since 1997. He was the best Dr I know of. For the last 5 years I have had the privelage of being able to work with him, and become good friends. We have shared lots of laughs and good times. He was one of my best friends. I always called him sunshine whenever he walked into the ER at St. Michaels. Now he is truly the sunshine. He will be shining over all of us. He will always be remembered and loved.

He will always hold a special place in so many hearts and lives. May God bless you, Dr Vereen, and may you still be watching over us all.

Dr. Vereen's family:

I remember when I first began working as a nurse, it was maybe my 3rd week out of school, I received my first and only (to date) write up from a physician. I thought for the longest it was because he was being "mean" it took me a couple of weeks realize it was because he never wanted me to make that mistake ever again. And to date, I have not made that mistake again. He wanted the best care for all of his patients no matter what it took! I worked with Dr. Vereen when I worked in GI Lab, my team and I would float to the branch lab on various occasions to assist Respiratory Therapy in the procedure. Now while I'm working at St Michael's on night shift, there was not a single morning that he passed by and not only said "good morning" but he also called me by name. Dr. Vereen, you will most certainly be missed by many many people!

My condolsenses to the family..

06/16/2012

From the time I got the priviledge of working with Dr Vereen in 2000 as a CRT and then an RN in 2010 in CV, until the last time I spoke with him, I had the utmost respect for him as a friend, physician, and mentor. I will always remember when I called his cell phone broken hearted and begged for him to take care of my dad when we found out he had lung cancer....he said yes with no hesitation!!! I will always be thankful for him....He will truly be missed by everyone!!! We will love him always!!

I will miss Dr. Vereen so much. He taught me oodles over the years! I loved him not only because he saved my life, but because he was an example of true compassion. He expected excellence, and nothing less. He loved teaching, and watching others learn. I was amazed by his intelligence and memory. I will always remember his tender heart and his mumble. He tops my list of respected healthcare providers. I have forever been inspired by his compassion and work ethic. I know God has gained a faithful servant.
