Rocky and Connie were the best neighbors anyone could ask for.
I moved across the street from them and they immediately took me under their wings (angel wings that is). I quickly found out that Rocky was the most giving man I've ever knew. I live alone now and my daughter lives in Texas. Rocky treated me like a daughter. Connie and I found that we had a lot in common and soon became best friends. Rocky would tell his jokes and made us both laugh. I will miss Rocky... Best Guy Ever!!!
I Miss You Rocky
Love You Connie
