(obituary in Stigler News Sentinel June 23, 2010)
One of the songs written and sung by Rocky, "Little Boy", was played at his funeral. It brought everyone to tears.
We will miss you, Rocky.
"Time Sits Still"
I am the face that moves upon the ocean and the seas.
I am both with the darkness and the light.
I am your worst enemy and at times your greatest ally.
I am that which will always be.
So when you need me...I will be here waiting.
Hidden to all as I carry the Alpha and Omega upon
My shoulders for all to see.
I will always be here...waiting for you to come...
Waiting for the final breath of mortal life
And the first breath of immortality.
I will always be here molding and forming the universe
As I fly upon the wings of the everlasting
Waiting for it all to unwind with the coming of Omega.
Written by Rocky Carlton
Beloved Son and Brother
