    So sorry to hear of Rocky passing. His family will really miss him and his care for them. Madison Pierce was my mom’s first cousin so Mary Pierce and Rocky mean a lot more than just a name. They all leave wonderful memories. I pray for a good day Sunday, deepest condolences.
    Note, My Grandma [Pierce] Evans, my mom, Cuba Evans Williams, mother.
