    Rocky was genuine person who was always sincere, thoughtful and considerate of others, and more often than not putting others ahead of himself. Without being asked, whether it was work related or personal, he was always willing to go out of his way to help a colleague or friend; and of course never afraid to share some humour that was guaranteed to put a smile on one’s face.

  28. We know not when the Master calls;
    It could be Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.
    The call affirms Our journey on Earth completed its time;
    We are joyous but saddened for those we’ve left behind.

    The energy and the surrounding light is so bright;
    Rocky gets to see God, what a beautiful, wondrous sight.
    God smiles, exuding such warmth and welcomes Rocky home;
    “Come talk to me further, my child,” says God from the throne.

    “Come say hello to my son, he’s known as Jesus to thee;
    He’s the reason you are here and why you are now free.”
    You are an integral part of heaven’s spiritual family;
    We are all happy here, especially you and me.

    Look around and absorb closely all that you see;
    This is where we will all spend eternity.
    There is no space, there is no time;
    We are now pure energy, thus all one of a kind.

    You may ask, “What is my purpose, why am I here;”
    “The answer, have no doubt, will become crystal clear.”
    Initially you will remember your life on Earth;
    Starting with your first breath and the exact moment of your birth.

    Here in heaven there is no rush, just happiness and song;
    We’re on a spiritual mission where nothing can go wrong.
    We welcome you home as you say a brief good-bye;
    Rocky Head at rest, you will be missed but no need for us to cry!!!!

    Thanks for the memories Rocky, until we meet again.

Thinking of you all at this difficult time.
