Diana, I remember when you and Rod first started dating. I always thought you made such a cute and great couple. To you and your family, my deepest sympathy. You are all in my prayers. I wish I could have been there for Rod's service today, but I am thinking of you and your children and grandchildren. He will be watching over you all. God Speed Rod.
