John and Juanita,
We were sorry to hear about your dad's passing. We would have been at the church, but we are out of town. I was remembering all the fun we had and places we went with your dad.
Sorry for your loss.

On behalf of the Rowley Kids grade school, high school classmates, and old time fellow parishioners from Saint Joseph's Parish, I send our thoughts, prayers, and love to the entire Rowley Family on the passing of John. Please take comfort in knowing that we hold all of you, close to our hearts in these times of sadness.

John, Juanita and family, my thoughts are with you.
