    Daryl – we wanted you to know that we will all be thinking of Rock at 6pm our time (which will be 10am your time). You have been in our thoughts constantly since we heard the awful news about Rock. We will never forget him, or his infectious laugh and sense of humour. We are so pleased we went to see him in September this year. We did have fun with him. Love you. Graham and family xxx

  • Charli & Brian Hayward says:


    We still can’t believe that Rock has gone and are desperately sorry that we didn’t see him in September.
    We haven’t stopped thinking of you, Kirk and Lee since we got the news of Rock’s tragic passing and will raise a glass at 6pm today (10am your time as Dad’s already stated!) in celebration of a larger than life character.

    Rock – see you on the other side brother. We’ll have a round of mini golf, just don’t lose all the balls before we get there 🙂 xxx

    Love to you all,
    Charli & Brian xxx

    Dear Aunty Daryl, Kirk and Lee:

    I am so sorry to hear about Rocky, I still can’t believe it. I think of you all often and hope that you find comfort with each other. When Aunty Tessie phoned us we were shocked. I love you all a lot. Sorry I was not able to be there. I do hope to see you soon, hopefully in the new year.

    Love Always,

  • Danny O'Dell says:

    I have been trying to reach Lance for quite sometime and acting on a hunch based on our last conversation last fall I started looking at the obits…and there he was.

    Darn it.

    He and I worked together on my logo and chatted infrequently about politics, weight lifting and other problems of the world that we solved together. The last time we talked he discussed his health… I didn’t know it was so serious. I thought he would get a handle on it and life would go on, but it didn’t and for that I am sorry. I wish there was something I could have done to help him out.

    He will be missed by those of us who knew him, even from afar as I am North of Spokane, Washington.

    Please accept my condolences for your loss of a a fine son and a great human being.
