Dear Tina and boys,

I'm so sorry for your loss!I was just telling someone the story of how Rodney taught me to drive my first car with a stick shift.As I was freaking out on a hill,Rodney looks at me and calmly says"You can do this" and smiles!No stress in his voice at all.He was a great person!
Rest in Peace,Rodney!

With love,

Tina, Dylan, Austin, and family,

Rodney was one of a kind. He had such a sweet, caring soul. He'd do anything for anyone. Chris loved him so very much. Rodney was one of his best friends. I'll never forget the trip y'all took with Chris to Pennsylvania. He had a blast. My boys looked up to Rodney like a second father. I know this is gonna be hard on all of you, and all of us are here for everyone of you. Those boys are like my kids. I love them so much. Let us know if there's anything we can do. We love you all! Rodney's riding those streets of gold in Heaven with Chris. Chris is gonna take care of him. I promise you! You all are in are thoughts and prayers.

Rodney was a fun guy he always enjoyed camp. He was always fun. And always laughed and had a smile on his face. He enjoyed life and loved to be a part of it. He loved everyone he ever came in contact with. He enjoyed being around people and appreciated every day. I will surely miss such a fun and loving person.

Tina and family,

I saw Rodney's passing in our local paper. I did not know him personally but do remember him from school. I had a lot of good times with you Tina...know that at this difficult time God knows your pain and is holding you all in the palm of his hands. Sorry for your loss.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
