    My dear sweet precious Rory, I’m so sorry I was not here to say Good-by. You were always such a dear friend to me.I could never and will never forget you. I will also remember the song we both loved so much by Anrea Bocelli called “My Prayer” I only wish now i would have accepted the cd when you offered it to me, It would have meant so much to me. Thank you again my friend for all you did for me. Nicki

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I didn’t know Rory very well, but I lost my son a few years ago and I know how difficult this can be. I’m so sorry, all of you are in my prayers.

    God Bless
