    I will never forget the time we were at Molly's birthday party spending the night & Rocky came in to dance with all of us & tried to teach us to two step. What a fun time! I know Rocky will be missed dearly by his loving family. You are all in my prayers.

    Rocky - We had our fun in high school, carried on during the college years, and stayed in touch as friends through life. You kept us laughing and raised our spirits when friends needed it most. God bless and keep you. Amen
