    Susan, I was so saddened to hear of Rodney’s passing. I didn’t even know that he had been sick. Please forgive me for not responding until now. I hate it so much that I wasn’t there for his calling or funeral. It just so happens I broke my ribs the very same weekend. When that happened I lost all thought of everything else. Rod was such a great guy and anybody that knew him will miss him dearly!! You two were blessed to have each other. Hugs and prayers to you and your family.

  27. James Cox July 20, 2023 at 6:32 am

    He was my friend. Good man. Wish I could find Randy.
