I met Rodney in Sacramento in 1964. He was a wonderful man but my plans were Los Angeles and an acting career. I will
always remember him as a caring, handsome, police officer. I never knew if he was ever married and had a family but I do have a picture of him that I would love to send his family.

I will never forget him and his love for his silver oldsmobile with the wonderful sounds of music. ''God, watch over him" he is one a kind and I sincerely hope that whomever took his live that they have paid many times for their crime. I just looked him up on the internet to see where he was now and if he was still an officer and was shocked to read about him.

God bless his family and for the picture you can always contact me. I would love to talk with you.
