Really enjoyed reading. Father in law, Edward Pehl, was born and raised in Rockne. My wife,Tonia, was baptized in Sacred Heart Church by Monsignor Faust. Can’t wait to get away and come back to visit.

Bertha Smith. She will be 100 June 3rd this year.

I had no idea Mr. Strait ever played in Rockne, no less on a wedding reception. Fantastic and I’m glad for you. Sad days in Rockne though and I pray the community will get trough it in good health. Herman was such a huge influence.

This was 1976. I graduated from Smithville and lived on 500 acres in Rosanky. Good small towns!

Rockne is on our list of places to check out on photo trips, but the Gram Parsons lyrics written on the wall in the saloon really solidify this for me.
