Dear Arlene and Family,
We are so sad of the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. It is so hard to lose a loved one especially one who is a wonderful sweet gentleman who has a huge heart of love.

His big, beautiful and loving family is a testament to Rodney Sr. I love you all and are sad that we could not be there with you during this trying time. May God's promise of Eternal life bring you hope. May His ever present love bring you peace... and May the loving thoughts and heartfelt prayers of us all bring you comfort. Praying and holding you close in thoughts and Prayers
Love you all so much!

Arlene and all your family,
My love and prayers and my sympathy are with you in these days of grief for hubby, your dad, and grandpa. Just know that Jesus has opened the welcoming door for Rod to enter his heavenly home already prepared for him. No more being paralyzed and free from pain. Maybe he is even being met by his brothers, Mom and dad, and military buddies etc. At some point we will meet him again when it's our time. Keeping you in prayer during these difficult days. Keep the happy memories. I know you have many. God loves you. So do I.
Sister in law, Friend, and Aunty,
Orice
