Rodney I wish you were here. My heart aches to hear your voice. I miss your smile and all the silly jokes you use to tell.
I'm sure you and dad and Doug along with Sammy and all of our other relatives and friends who are up in Heaven with you are all sitting around talking about all the memories just we do here.

Merry Christmas in Heaven Rodney.
Holidays just are not the same without you.
Usually at this time of the night you would be in the garage finishing up wrapping & I would be in the living room finishing up.
Then we would try to get a few hours of sleep before the kids woke up.
memories are great but they make me miss you more.
LOVE you & miss you.

All my love to you
