    Knew Rocky from the time I was a small girl. Strong, quiet. Loved animals especially dogs and horses. Got my picture taken with him in the winners circle with his horse at the track. So loved and will be missed dearly. Rachel, you and the rest of the family are in my prayers daily. May God Sustain and comfort you.
