  6. I’m so glad I not only had a chance to meet Rocky but also be a part of the family! We might not have always seen eye to eye but Rocky was only trying to look out for my best interest and of course I didn’t always want to hear it . But I love that he cared enough to even waste his time to tell me what ever it was he needed to tell me, but my prayers go out to his family for healing cause I know this is weighing hard on their heart’s,

  12. Uncle Rocky we already miss you. Growing up you always had something funny to say or some wisdom to give. We always knew where we stood with you because you always told us the truth even when we didn’t want to hear it. You were a protector of our family and taught that to all of us. Thank you for loving my boys and showing them that they belong. You taught me there was always room for one more. You may be gone for the moment but you will never be forgotten. See you on the other side.
    John, Leslie, Kaleb, John-David, and Austin
