    Sue, Randy, and family. I don’t know what to say other than I’m sorry. I’ve known Rodney for almost 40 years, and in that time he’s offered guidance, opinions and on more than one occasion some pretty good stories. Shortly after my dad passed away Rodney called me and we discussed several things; a call I much appreciated and still do. Rodney and I shared the same January 15th birthday. At some point during that day we would talk. I’ll miss that annual conversation for sure. Thoughts are with the family.
