Mary and Nancy. So sorry for your loss. Your Dad was part of our bell choir at RRUMC for many many years and we have a lot of good memories with him. Keep your memories deep in your heart and smile whenever you think of him. Blessings. Phyllis Cooper, RRUMC

Rod and Mary are both very dear to me. They are two very wonderful people who have contributed so much to their world and to mine. For which I am grateful. This kind man was truly lovely and will leave a big hole as we remember him as he was.

I have an obligation on Saturday evening that I cannot figure out how to get out of and I do so want to see you girls and your children. My e-mail is Love, Sally Smith
Do tell me what you are doing and tell me about your children.

My sympathy is expressed to Rod’s family at this sad time. My memories of Rod stem from our association at RRUMC where he was vital part of its ministry. He was also a valuable member of the East Ohio Annual Conference. He will be missed.

Rest In Peace Rod. My thoughts have been with you for the past couple of months. You were always a gentleman and a great member if Monday Morning Handbell Choir. You were always willing to help where ever needed. I will always remember you with warm thoughts. Mary has been waiting for you. Together again....
