Rowland was a great friend and associate. We had many good times together and I was glad we had a chance to talk recently. Bonnie, Sarah and I are praying for you. The good seem to pass on too early!!

Rowland was a perfect friend and business associate; we first met in approximately September of 1972, some 44 years ago, at Ashland Oil's offices in Ashland Kentucky. Very quickly I knew Row was a honourable, frank, prudent and interesting person. He had the great ability in spotting the strengths and weakness' of others.

Row was the best joke teller in any company, the world record gin rummy player, he made the best mint julep at Keeneland and mixed with many British during his many trips to the United Kingdom and befriended them through his wit and charm and not least, he became the smartest conservatively dressed Kentuckian on the streets of London during his many visits. Just a few qualities in his remarkable portfolio of abilities!

A man of steel, a successful business man, a man totally loyal to his employer, a man who wore his countries military uniform, a man you could trust, a man who could be difficult on occasions but always with an underlying warmth and sincerity who thought of others so often before himself, a man with great generosity, a true leader. I am so honoured to have had both Rowland and Bonnie as very close friends over all these years.

Bonnie, a mother, a wife, a nurse and the best Angel one could ever imagine. She has been through hell and high water, what a women, what a person, our deepest love to you.

I am confident that Jon and Clay and their families have been steadfast throughout Row's long fight with his illness, chips off the old block, families to be proud of.

Row's departure is a very great loss to us all and society as a whole, I am personally devastated.

"Life levels all men: death reveals the eminent" (George B. Shaw).

God bless him.
