I,ARRY YOCUM, 32, of 3084 Karen Drive, Naples, Fla., died Jan. 19 at Naples. Born July 13, 1949, at Fort Smith, he was a member of St. Boniface parish. Surviving are his father, a brother and his maternal grandmother. Funeral services were held at Papal 'Golden Rose' Stolen from Shrine Knock, Ireland (NC) -- Thieves smashed a glass case in the basilica a! the shrine of Our Lady of Knock and stole a gold-plated carving given by Pope John Paul II when he visited the shrine in 1979, police said. The carving was a nine- inch-high "golden rose," said Msgr. James Horan, the local priest who invited the Pope to the Marian shrine in County Mayo. He said it was similar to gifts presented by the Vatican to most of the world's Ca tholic pilgrimage centers. The metal of which the rose is made is worth relatively little, but Ireland's 3.5-million Catholics consider the rose "almost beyond value," Msgr. Horan said. Appealing to the robbers to return the carving, he said, "It means so much to the people around here and we badly want it back." | BISHOP DIES San Francisco (NC) -- Bishop Merlin J.
