I am so very sorry and very sad to hear about Rocky's passing so unexpectedly. He was such a sweet man. I so enjoyed seeing and talking to him at Pat and Greg's Pour House. Could never pass by him without hugging him and pulling his beard. Always made him smile. And he made me smile back. Such a wonderful soul to be around, always made a person feel good. It was a pleasure and a privilege to know him. It will be hard to go to PH now. Will truly feel empty without him.

Sincerest Condolences,
