To All My Brothers, It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that our Brother
"Rocky" Rothwell after a courageous battle passed away yesterday at
2:30 PM. He fought for almost four years and suffered, but always fought back
and never gave up!! He was my brother and my friend and I will miss him so
much, but I am so thankful for all the Happy Memories of have of the time we
had together as I know you all are too. Rocky was a wonderful trooper,
husband, father, and friend and I feel so lucky to have know him. It is so
hard to let him go, but I know he is no longer suffering and today he is
resting in peace. One day we will all meet him again. We spoke with Ann about
an hour ago and they had just returned from making the arrangements. She was
doing well and was Rocky when he left us. He was lucid until Thursday and
hospice made him comfortable until he left us to journey to Fiddler's Green.
