Ang, I am so sorry to have heard of the loss of such a dear friend. Rod was a wonderful man which was loved by so many who knew of his gentle heart! I am also sorry I could not have been there for you in such a time of need as I couldn''t find anything out in time. I will be praying for you and your family as you find the ways to get through this which will truly be hard. Please find peace in knowing how many he has touched and that we will all be here for you in your time of sorrow. Feel free to call anytime! Love, Hugs and Prayers for you my friend.
