    A truly talented person has left us. One of the fondest memories I have of my sister is listening to her play the piano and and sing.We lived in a two story house in Honeoye Falls. Her piano was at the foot of the stairs leading the bedroom David and I slept in. Went to sleep listening to her sing. Only one of her many talents.

    While growing up, Tracy and I were inseparable for most of our adolescent years, which in turn made Mrs. Rowland like a second mom to me then. I have many wonderful memories of time spent at their home that I will always cherish. My thoughts, prayers, sympathy and love is with the 4 wonderful women that grew up at 327 Lowden Point Road.
