Rod had one of those personalities that you don't forget. He was "larger" than life. So much has come from the tragedy that is his untimely death, but there is also good that has come. I honestly think that would make Rod happy. He brought people together, he re-solidified relationships that were faded through time. How many people can say they've done that? God Speed old friend. We hold your girls close to heart, your Mom, Kent, Lex, Monica and so many others. These are the bonds tightened by you, I hope you know that up there. I think you left this earth a hero, and that is the Rod I choose to remember.
