I was a friend of Rowe's in high school. The news of his passing was terrible to receive. I can't say enough about the size of his heart. His smile was contagious and he could always find the silver lining when things got tough. The fact that I searched for him 25 years after the last time I saw him should show just how amazing I thought he was. I'd love to talk to his children some day and share some fun stories and examples of his amazing spirit. I miss you brother. May you rest in peace and may your family take solace in the fact that so many people think so highly of him.
