Just a few weeks ago, I posted about how the Rock dairy farm near us got hit by a tornado. This tornado hit just a couple weeks after their father passed away, adding to their grief. Well, just yesterday, Gary Rock, who had bought out his brothers a while back, got caught in his silage chopper trying to free a clogged chopper head. It cut his legs off well above the knees, but he is alive, and hopefully will heal up, but his life is never going to be the same. I've known the Rock brothers most all my life. They kind of stick to themselves, so I've never been close friends, but friends never the less. Sure shook me when I heard of this just this morning. Those that do, please remember this family in your prayers, as they most certainly will need it. They repaired their tornado damaged parlor & just brought their cows back home this past Monday. I figure his younger brother Mark, will step in to operate the dairy. Mark & he parted business a year ago on bad terms, but I am hoping Mark will put this aside, at least till something can be figured out. So tragic & sad. It goes without saying this should never have happened, as Gary knows how dangerous it is to deal with live equipment, but it happened, so all we can do is hope/pray for the best.
