Dear Block Family, My thoughts and prayers are with your Dad and your family at this time. May Rollie rest in eternal peace. I remember when we were kids piling into the light blue 63 LeSabre and your dad would drive us to school at St Rita’s if he was off work. He would also give Ted and I a ride to basketball games and other activities. Great memories from way back. I also remember that during the Christmas season our family would come to your home for a visit and enjoy some food and festivity. Many memories are coming back. My condolences for your family!
