My Dearest Rodney,
I pray that Jesus is holding your hand to his heart so dear, taking you to a beautiful river where the waters run so clear. To majestic mountains, crisp snow atop, and eagles soar above, where angles sing hallelujah non stop, in a heaven filled with love.
I will miss you so very much. Have a happy life above. We will be together again.

Rodney was a man who was loving and kind. This past Christmas right after our Wednesday Bible study Rodney mention that there was still money to be given for the kids in Bismarck, he promoted and work with "Shop with a Cop" We got together and because of Him pushing even up to the last deadline we were about to reach 10 more kids, he was so excited and I was too. He wanted the kids of our community to know the Joy of Christmas. Rodney it was my honor to be your Pastor. I will miss ya for now but praise God b/c of Christ death on the Cross for our sin, the missing will only be temporary. See ya someday soon.
