    I truly loved and had great respect for Rodney. He was a good friend to my mom and had a huge impact on my life and my sobriety. Also impacted the sobriety of my son who now has three years sobriety. We will forever think of him, mention him and share his words of with many others. His memory and his recovery will live on for years to come. My mom passed away 29 years ago and her recovery is still helping others so please know that he will carry on my heart and the hearts of many others. He will continue to help people as he did in his lifetime
