So sorry to hear about Rocky Lee’s passing. I always enjoyed the years she worked at the Murfreesboro Nursery, she sold me a lot of flowers and we shared a lot of good conversations and she was always such a sweet lady. Prayers to the family.

Always hard to say farewell but the loss will always carry tears with the memories that mean so much. Life will always be good and not so good news or events. Keeping you in my prayers Stan.
