  1. So sad to hear the news about Rod's passing. It just broke my heart! I went to school with Rodney but really began to know him and Linda when I came home to visit my family. My brother Randy and his wife Angie spent a lot of time with Rodney and Linda and I am so glad that I got the opportunity to spend time with them and their group of chihuahuas as we rooted on the Cowboys over Christmas! He was such a sweet man with lots of personality! He was fun to be around and always made you laugh! I'll never forget laughing at him as he stuffed all their doggies in his coat so they wouldn't get cold when they left that night. He loved his babies! Prayers for all those who knew him! May God comfort and give His peace! RIP sweet Rodney! You will be missed by many! Mary Webb
