I seen you just this last Saturday not knowing it would be my last time, the first thing you said to me was a joke you just had to tell EVERY time you seen me lol wether it had been the day before or months!! You always had me laughing and kept a smile on your face. I’ll sure miss you walking into the store big guy! I love you Chief, rest easy until we meet again 😪

Well we had 10 years of ups and downs. We brought two beautiful girls into this world. I guess one memory of you is when we would go grocery shopping and if I could not reach something on the top shelf you would not get it for me you just picked me up by my arm and made me get it myself. Sometimes you would leave me dangling there for a minute. I promise to tell your grandchildren all the fun memories. RIP

Rodney, despite all the good and bad we have had over the years you did try to take me in as a son when I move down here with my mom when y'all were married. You are quite a character that is without a doubt. Rest easy Rodney
