Dear Evelyn, I am so sorry to read about the passing of your son Rodney.
Obviously, I did not know him but knowing and remembering you as a wonderful, caring Granville classmate, I am sure he was a very special son.

My sincere condolences to Evelyn and Neil and Rodney's children. I have amazing memories of Rodney playing whiffle ball with much older neighbors and holding his own. He was always there to have fun. I know his family has great memories to hold on to.
