  1. What an honor and privilege for God to bring Mr. and Mrs. Rock to this area. Would love for the time with Mr. Rock to have been longer, but it was certainly long enough to experience his genuine Faith and Trust in the Plan of God. Thankful he is resting until the trumpet sounds and he is given eternal life in the Family of God.
