Always think about my man Rodney, we worked side by side at BCCF. I told him he had the whitest teeth I ever saw in my life and we laughed about that all the time, he gave me his secret too... lol. Drove all the way to the Cattle Ranch from Eufaula with a boot on his foot to cheer for his fellow coworkers at the DOC picnic, that’s the kinda guy he was, miss you my friend
