Frank Rodriguez was a great resident at our Apartment Community and he will be truly missed. He loved to stare out the window and watch the trees and birds. He would have loved to see the tree in front of his home trimmed and we hate that he missed being able to see that done. Our prayers are with his family during this time of mourning such a great person.

I have nothing but fond and loving memories of my great grandpa. He meant so much to my family, especially to my dad who I know is forever grateful for his life. He had the greatest spirit-- so loving, asked about others all of the time, and such a great memory! I rejoice because I know he is healed and whole with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that one day we will all be reunited. He helped build a great legacy for our family that I vow to help carry on.
