Rod - You know the impact that you had on my life. You were always there with a positive thing to say about anything we discussed. You know all the wonderful times that we were able to share as brothers, friends, coworkers. I will miss your words that you said to me most often: Hi buddy. I know that we will see each other again in Heaven along with all the faithfully departed before us. I love you so much my brother. I will see you shortly (time flies by and it will be my turn some day to meet Jesus face to face as you already have).

Sue, my heart is heavy for your family. I enjoyed reconnecting with Rod at our 50th Reunion and shared laughs and our faith. I´ll hold those memories dear. May God comfort you and yours.

I am very saddened to hear of Rodney's death. He was one of my favorite classmates, always so kind and loved his beautiful smile. My deepest sympathies to Susan and his family.
