Rodney was pretty much a staple in my childhood. Most of my memories of him come from those long ago days. I would stay with the Hodges clan as often and as long as I possibly could. I adore my Aunt Polly and Faye, Rodney, Beverly and Ann were like a brother and sisters, rather than cousins. The young Rodney I remember was quiet, reserved and introspective, but he was a pony tail puller and a picker (he had 3 sisters after all). My favorite memory are all the times Rodney would give of his time and thrill us little girls by saddling Sugarfoot, the pony, and leading us around. The most profound memory though, is between he and I and God, but it taught me a life lesson. One that I use every day. Even as a young boy he was compassionate and understanding of my mistake. He never shamed me, he counseled me, and I will be forever grateful. From that kind, patient young boy, grew a wonderful humble family man. I ache for his loving family. I love you Rodney! ????
