    I first met Stretcher in the early 1070’s. Through all the changes and ups and downs, he was always a true friend who I knew would always be there. Now he is gone and I sure miss him.

    I am saddened to hear of his passing. Warren was a great friend and neighbor during our childhood. I always loved going to visit and shoot baskets in the barn and have Mary make me a peanut butter sandwich. May the Rowland family cherish the many good memories.

    Dear Roland Family:

    I am currently on business in China each month, but heard the sad news via Larry. All my best to your family. I have known Stretch for many years as he came out to California to visit Larry many times. Stretch was always so pleasant to be around and really made us all laugh, especially when we had a card game at Larry’s place. Stretch will be missed sorely and I wish the Roland family all the best.

    Best Regards

    Dave Smith
