Rowe family extremely grateful to community for outpouring of love, special tribute


On behalf of the Rowe family, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making my father’s memorial service such an honoring event.

Our family is grateful for the outpouring of love and sympathy that we experienced since my father’s death, and we were awed by the extent to which the community desired to pay him their respect.

Although the circumstance which made this event necessary is not one which we chose, we are thankful that it could be an occasion when long unseen friends could be reunited and relationships could perhaps be re-established.

There are a number of key individuals and organizations that went “above and beyond” to make this event a special one and to you we give a special thanks because we know that without your creativity, hard work and financial investment, his memorial service would not have been possible.

It is comforting for us to know that the investment that my father and his staff made in the lives of children who attended “his” school will bear fruit for generations to come.

On behalf of the Rowe family,

Carl Rowe
