    Rodney you will missed. We will never forget the gift you had for making us all laugh. You did a lot in your life but your greatest accomplishment was to give your life to Christ. Continued prayers for the family

  4. Dear family…I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Rodney will be missed by family and friends, but he will not be forgotten by our heavenly father. We often wonder can the dead really live again. Jesus’ words found at (John 5:28,29) says there will be a resurrection. This means that Rodney will be given a fresh new start with the prospect of living forever. (Psalms 37:29) I hope this will bring you comfort knowing that you have an opportunity to see him again to share more wonderful times together.

  5. My prayers are with all family, and friends. Rodney was a great person, he will truly be missed

  6. Daddy I miss you so much life is so hard without you.
