I have fond memories of dancing my heart out at the Thow residence in high school. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Thow for playing the music and teaching us some sick moves. I will forever smile whenever I hear 'Stuck in the Middle with You' by Stealers Wheel. My condolences to the whole family for your loss. Jen Poupart

I met Alex when he came to visit us at the cottage and he wasn't crazy about being on an island. He and his family have been friends of ours for many years and my heart goes out to them at this time. My condolences.
