Our deepest sympathy to the Brock family for the loss of Jim Brock. We were neighbors of the family in Rockville on Marshall Ave. when they lived on Farragut Ave. While we lost contact when all of us moved away, only having contact with Steve through Giant. We have fond memories of the days when you children were small and want you to know we are thinking of all of you. Also, knowing the loss of your mother has been difficult.
The Tetlows, who lived next door to your family wish to express their sympathy as well. They live near us in Berkeley Springs, WV.
Take care, all of you and hold onto your memories.
The Kinseys
