    My family lived in Fayetteville and were friends of the Rowlingsons. John was a member of my class and the girls were friends with my sister Gretchen. We were all lucky to grow up when and were we grew up. A good community of good people. I am sad to learn of Pete's passing. He wasa good guy and I hope he had a good life. Fair winds Pete!
