Not sure what to say?

Patricia Rock is fondly remembered , not only by the Birkitt Dental office team members, but by Dr Cary Birkitt, personally. Being a patient of long record, her easy smile and gentle way always illuminated the office during her appointments. Dr Birkitt recalls the Rock family as being central figures in the local Scout Troop.
Sympathy and prayers are warmly sent to the Rock family.
