I'm very sad to hear the news about Rodney. I went to Cordova High School with him--we were in the same graduating class of '70. He was such a charismatic, fun person with so many who loved him. I have happy memories of Rodney and his parents when my family lived in Cordova. My Dad pastored the Free Will Baptist Church there. I will pray for his family and all his friends who are heartbroken. Sincerely....Anita (Ellis) Haney (Cookeville, TN)
