Rodney and Marion were neighbors across the street from my parents, and then from us when we moved into my folks place. I babysat Blossom on many of their Laughlin trips
We always stayed in touch after he said good bye to Green Valley, whether he was in Florida or Maine.

I still have a little hummingbird he gave me when he was making jewelry. I'll treasure it always. He was such a good friend and neighbor and from what I hear, an excellent cook. He was just an all around great guy and we will miss him.

My condolences to Rodney's Family. Rodney and I worked together as Patrolmen for the Somerset County Sheriffs in the early '70s. He was a great co-pilot. RIP my friend as you now patrol the Heavens!
