Well Rocky, there's been a few memories I remember like times when you and Margaret, John and Sandy and me and James went dancing out at the Silver Dollar and the Broken Spoke. Anytime "Wipeout" came on, we all knew to watch you because that head of yours started twisting and turning and wanting to dance. Sometimes we would brave that dance floor with you and other times we would sit and watch and talk about how crazy you were but knew we were all just having fun!! We all had such good times but some of that dancing we all did was over by the old Burleson bridge. It was a place we would go, pull over and parked, got out and turned the music on and danced right there on the side of the road. And one of your favorite songs dancing to was, "It's Only Make-Believe" by Conway Twitty. Ever since then, every time I've heard that song, I thought about you. Now you and Margaret can dance forever and any time I hear it now, I'll know you're dancing with Margaret with a huge smile on your face just like I will with James when I get there and John and Sandy will when he gets there!! Until then, keep'em dancing and tell'em that we love and miss them very much!!

I never knew what to expect when we would see you. Whether it be multi colored hair to water fights, whatever it was it was fun. You helped me and my kids out, before I even knew or met and married your brother, and I will always be grateful to you. Love you and we know you and Margaret are together again. RIP
