A limb has fallen from our family tree, that says grieve not for me. REMEMBER
the best times, the laughter and most of all remember the good life I lived while
I was strong.
God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be. So he wrapped his arms
around you and whispered, “come to me.” You didn’t deserve what you went
through, so he gave you the rest you needed. Goodbye is not forever, goodbye
is not the end, it simply means we will miss you Rodney, until we meet again.
