    Condolences on your loss. Rodney was a good, caring man in whom we trusted our future and family. Starting with my parents, and continuing to my husband and me and our children, we turned to Rodney for sage advice and he always responded with the utmost professionalism and compassion.

    Rest in Peace my old friend.
