My favorite moment with my mom during shower time. Growing up I was a non stop video game player just like my brothers are now but everytime it was that time my mom would call me to go take a shower. Being so hooked with my video games I was trying to have the guinesses world record for fastest shower jus rinse off and I'm out but my mom would notice here and there and give me the check to see if I showered right so basically she smelt my hair and sent me straight back to the shower.

My memories of Rowena go back almost 20 years ago. I first met Steve and Rowena in Hawaii. Steve and I were Stationed together. I remember being invited to come over for many gatherings. Every time I would see her, she would have a beautiful smile on her face. She and Steve were my good friends. After they left Hawaii, Steve and I kept in touch and it wasn't until Aug of 2009 that I met up with the family again. This time I came to Lemoore alone for two years. It was hard to leave my family...

Rowena, Steve & Family are beautiful people. The times me and my family shared with them were both joyous and beneficial for us both. I remember when Rowena's problems began and we were were overjoyed when the initial symptoms were overcome. Sadly, they returned to claim a dear friend of us all. May her beautiful soul rest within the cradle of the Lord!
