Rodney was the best father a person could ask for. He loved my mom and I more than anything. He also loved his job, and his motorcycle. I remember on his off days, he would take his motorcycle to the front yard, and hand wash it until it shone. And every morning, I would go to the driveway with him, and start his motorcycle. Who knew that on that day, I would do that for the last time. I know he's in a better place now.
Thank you for everything you've done for us. You will not be forgotten.
