Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Praying for the family. Rodney became a part of my family when he started dating my niece, Natosha. He took her under his wing and loved her unconditionally. They were the cutest couple. He was her Big Teddy Bear. Rodney will be greatly missed by his family and ours. Lord, comfort and strengthen his wife, parents, daughter, sister and the other family members. RIP Rodney. Love and miss you. Aunt Lana
