In Memoriam
Rocky Edward Voltz
Sept. 6, 1940 - Aug. 21, 1996
Even though it's been two years since God has taken you away,
I know you are still with us everyday when:
I see your smile in my children's smile;
I see your eyes when I look into their eyes;
I hear your voice when I hear their voices;
I hear your laughter when I hear them laugh;
and I feel your love through them.
I Love You and Miss You, Karen
