Yvonne,
I am really very sad to hear about Rocky's death. I liked him, though I spent a small amount of time with him. He was funny and laid back and easy to know. I must appologize for not being at the funeral services, Becki is having surgery tomorrw and I will be at the hospital. However, you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
