My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My dad lived at the Arbor House and also taught your dad at Tech. I know this has been a difficult time for you all and know that he is now at peace. My dad passed away last February and I find comfort in that fact also. Take care.

To The Rockett Family: Sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Kenneth's grandfather and my grandfather were brothers so I guess that makes us 2nd cousins. He was several years older than I was but I'm sure that we have both attended Rockett Reunions at Camp Creek. Our ancestors are buried there as are his. We both were Tech graduates. I am sure that Kenneth knew my mother Eleanor Rockett who was Registrar at LA Tech.

Erin, I am so sorry for your tragic loss and will be praying that God will give you comfort and peace in the days to come. I always enjoyed visiting with your dad when he came to the bank in Farmevile. He had a great military mind and I enjoyed hearing about his military experiences. He was a true southern gentleman and had such a positive influence on so many people. Sincerely, Rean Simpson Farmerville La
