Rodney was so much like his Mom Hard working , loving and caring family person . I got to babysit the kids for a brief time even though they were not that much younger than I was . We got along great . Rodney tried to teach me how to throw a football a few times but as always he was the one who could really throw the ball ! 😊

To Missy, Boys, and Extended family,
I am so sorry to hear about Rodney. I'm sure the pain is great. To be married over 30 years and have devoted loving children, and grandchildren has to hurt beyond compare. I understand, but in a different way. Breck enjoyed his time with Uncle Rodney in July.
I wont be at the gathering at the VFW, but know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
