Sending prayers on your behalf to the One who can comfort. I am so sorry for what you have experienced. It's sent ripples of grief all the way to North Carolina. Having never met Rodney, except through your photos, I saw a giant of a man. A good man, the kind folks back here call the salt of the earth. An old soul that knew about the importance of family and community. A man solid as the dirt he farmed and yet soft enough cuddle his newborn grand daughter with the tenderness of giant mama bear. A big teddy bear is what I saw through your family photos shared online.
Your husband, daddy, Nono, he is bigger than life. A man like this simply doesn't fade away. He will be with you always. Just like your Heavenly Father will always be with you, so will Rodney. I hope you find comfort in that during this difficult time.
