Rockafella aka Pedro David Scott left us with a hole in our hearts that can never be filled.
Rocky showed up on our doorstep about 2.5 years ago, he was an extremely energetic and an incredibly happy fellow, It didn't take Rocky long to make a lot of good friends here in WaD, He showed nothing but kindness to all who crossed his path and went above and beyond to make people feel welcome, Rocky had a way of making people feel good on an off servers regardless of how we were at the time, He was a shining light bright enough to block the sun, As big as rocky was in life he was still the biggest teddy bear many of us have seen in a very long time, his persona and demeanor put may at ease regardless of the events going on in our personal lives.
Rocky's ride with us was an very bumpy one at best but regardless of the struggles he went through off the PC he always brought the best he could to our community, he brought with him joy and excitement for a game many of us have played for a very long time making every day with Rocky a pleasure.
It wasn't long after rocky was invited into our ranks by unanimous vote that he started to let people know why he had so much free time with us, Rocky informed many of us that he was suffering from an inoperable brain tumor, and was only given months to live but in true rocky fashion he sought a better result 'give up' was never part of his vocabulary, so rocky ventured over seas to a surgeon that was capable of removing the tumor and was successful to this end, so after a brief break (of which we all felt the loss in the community) he returned to us with fear of how much he had lost due to the surgery, he was reluctant to communicate because his speech suffered due to the operation, but that was no deterrent from enjoying his time with us, so much so that with the help and support of many wad members(you know who you are and you should feel honored) he underwent speech therapy and it wasn't long before the outspoken rocky was returned to us, Rocky showed many of us that what we face each day was of little importance in the grand scheme, when you witness someone fight tooth and nail to hold on to what they love most its hard not to become emotionally attached, he was a brother to many and a father to some.
His surgery gave us all some valued time with Rocky, time that each of us will take away knowing we are better people for knowing him and having the opportunity to be apart of his life no matter how long or short we knew him for.
Rocky your efforts in wad will go on for years to come and you will NEVER be forgotten.
We love you, We miss you and we will always honor the time we were given with such an influential part of our family.
To Ella and Malakai,
We are all incredibly sorry for your loss and would like to extend all the hands we can to aid you in your time of need, please consider us part of your family as we do both of you, there are many here that would drop all to aid you in anyway we can.
I apologise in advance if this a little muddled as I had a hard time writing this as i know a few of you will have a hard time reading it.
These were made for Rocky when he went to Germany for his surgery.
