    To the family and friends of Rocky Raines
    Please accept my condolences for Rocky. These words from the scriptures helped me when I experienced the death of a loved one: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) This promise from God assures us all of a future time when we no longer will experience pain from the death of a loved one. Please accept my sincere sympathy. Kathy

    I just found out about losing my good friend Rocky and I am completely crushed. Rocky and I became friends when we worked together for a few years. My heartfelt condolences to his family and to Lorie. Rocky and I would share life stories with each other almost every day at work. He loved you all so very much and was tremendously proud to have you all in his life. I loved him and I will miss him.
