Uncle Rok,As one of your nieces, I was always in awe of you. You had such a large personality and seemed so strong. My memories of you were mostly from my youth as we would visit Mom and Pop in the country and you and NanNan lived next door. As the oldest and the last to go, it pains me to see all Mom and Pop's children pass away as a generation. My prayers go to Uunt Rena who will miss you too much and Patsy and Allen who were wonderful children to you.
