Patty, I am so sorry for terrible loss. I was so shocked when I read the online paper this morning. Rock was a special person and friend to me. He always had a smile and "Hi Marv" for me. You and your family are in my prayers. In Holden Beach, NC for a few more days...Rest is peace, Rock!

My condolences to the Stang family. Ed was a good friend in high school and a great teammate. I don't know of anyone who didn't speak highly of him. Sorry I can't make it to his services but I'll be thinking of him. R.I.P. good friend.

I am so sorry to hear about Eddie's passing. I was his classmate and we always had a good time in class. He was always fun to be around. May the Lord comfort you in this time of need. I hope all the memories of Eddie can always comfort you in some way. I would love to come to his services; however, I live in KY and won't be able to be there. So may you find comfort and know that we are sending prayers your way. Again, I am so sorry.
