Rodney was an intelligent and gentle young man.He was kind spoken,respectful and had a heart of gold on him.He valued his friends and family with high regards.He was genuine,artistic and saw the beauty in the little things most people miss.He was a fine young man and left our world too early.Although he left us early this does not mean he is gone as those he loved so dearly will continue to hold him close to their hearts and cherish the memories they share together.May his spirit live on and watch over his loved ones.Rest in peace Rodney.
