Goodbye to my long-time friend and colleague. You were not a mere acquaintance or just a co-worker. You were a valued advisor, counselor and example of what all men should aspire to be. Your dignity and patience are inspiring. The only consolation one can offer is that the greatness of a loss is the measure of its antecedent gain.

Rest in peace Rodney.
