Please accept our sincere condolences to the Rowe Family.
Although we did not stay in touch, I will be eternally grateful for the love and care Joan and Clair gave to my son Kristopher. Not only did they babysit, but they loved him and he became part of their family. I, and Kristopher, were so blessed to have them in our lives at a time when we so needed them. I know they must be happy together. Our sincere condolences to the family who now has to move forward with a life without them.
