Regal and true – he graced us with his presence and allowed us to fawn all over him on an annual basis.  Seeing Rommel and his family crossing over the hill brought smiles and relieved the anticipation.  Seeing him kept us coming back to that venue each year.   Lung cancer has taken this joy from us.  We will miss him and his dedication to us.  We are comforted that his family is now part of our family and we haven’t lost the connection.
