To the Rhodes Family: God places people in our lives and in our paths as we journey through this world. Mr. Rhodes was one of those persons that God placed in our lives. God Blessed me and my family to have had the opportunity to share a portion of time with Mr. Rhodes and his wife. Mr. Rhodes was a good man and a God fearing man. He was the kind of man that once you met him, you would always remember him. It is very seldom that you find someone you work with to have such a caring relationship for their employees. Mr. Rhodes was that kind of person. We can never forget the kindness and concern that he showed during my illness and how he was there checking on me each day during this time. My entire family, even the kids, were impressed by Mr. Rhodes concern for his employee. Mr. Rhodes will be greatly missed by the Parker Family. We will continue to keep the Rhodes Family in our thoughts and prayers. Always remember earth has no sorrows that Heaven cannot heal. Please let us know if you need anything. We will be more than happy to do what we can for you and your family. May God Bless and Keep You. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Wyonna and family,
My heartfelt sympathy to you. I thought highly of Jimmy and felt he was a great example of a Christian. I will miss him greatly. Jimmy has met his ultimate goal he worked hard for here on earth. Even though God has called one of his children home, God will keep you and your family in his comforting arms and surround you with His great Love and Comfort. God Bless you, Linda Steverson
