Dear Jeanette and Family,
I just wanted to add a note to Kathy's, to say how all of our family in New Orleans and beyond remember Rodney as such a generous, open, welcoming and warm human being. I personally will never forget how you and Rodney cared for Nobie in Baton Rouge when, in her last years, she had to evacuate the city after yet another hurricane. She loved him like a son. Rodney was always a wonderful source of laughter and good cheer at all our family gatherings--and they go back many, many years! What great stories and memories he has given to us. Ruthie
Jeanette, Kevin, Michael, Randy and Douglas,
I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear of the loss of Rodney. In fact, it's hard for this news to sink in because he was always so energetic and full of life and fun. I have so many good memories of him going way back to childhood, spending time with him at family picnics and get togethers, etc. He was always the good natured one, always laughing and with a smile on his face, kind and and always ready to lend a helping hand.
I remember it put a smile on all our faces when he got Nobie to dance with him at Peggy and James's wedding. :)
Several years ago when he was working for Gtech and came to Austin he came over and had dinner with Rog and I. I still remeber it well - we had such a nice visit.
I can't imagine how hard it will be for all of you to adjust to this but hang in there - he is in a wonderful place now - I'm sure of it.
My heart goes out to all of you.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
