Special Thanks:
  • Oh man this is going to be hard. First and foremost I will have to thank my soul mate, my love Stephanie, my wife; without her this site would have never got off the ground. My three kids who are my life. Mom & Dad, my sisters and nephews. My staff, I will have to start with David Felix, a guy I have known and have always been good friends with for so many years. His new bride Judy Felix who I haven't known long but became we friends right off the bat. Pedro Lopes, my partner in crime - a great guy. Joe Merante, a guy who is in my heart. We both went through a lot together (love ya bro). Mark Balogh - just an all around great guy. Rob Benaquista, a friend of Dave’s who is a prodigy. Patty Brady, who is new to the staff and will keep working hard. Jeff Mastin, just one word - knowledge. Brian Monteiro, a young guy who is learning the ropes. Bill DeMild, a long time friend with or without Rockeyez.  Did I forget anybody on my staff... oh YEAH? The brainchild and mastermind of our site, "THE WEBMASTER", Carlos Rodrigues. A guy who is like the Wizard of OZ. He is in the background and you would envy this guy. He is like the millionaire that donates big bucks and would just rather be heard and not seen. Thanks Carlos.
