Rodney was the first neighbor to welcome me to the neighborhood two years ago and even though he was fighting cancer he (and Brenda) managed to help me. Ill miss seeing him in the front yard visiting neighbors who stopped by, watching him cook on the grill and sending food over to me and my dog.
I knew he loved God and his family and also was aware he was a soldier at heart.
God took one fine man home.
RIP Sarge
