I was surprised and sadden to learn of Rodney's passing. Some of my fondest memories of Rodney were the times we had together at Boshes house ... playing, spending the night, and giving Bosh the dickening. Living miles apart as we grew up later, we pretty much lost contact. I can only now offer my condolences and prayers to family ... God bless.

Shannon, I was so saddened to hear about your father's passing. We are keeping you and your family in our prayers. Andy and Tracy Moore
