My brother and I wish to express our condolences to Rodney's family. Our mother, Dorothy, was Rodney's aunt and just recently passed through heaven's gate as well. I was fortunate enough to meet with Rodney's son, Mark, when he was visiting a Bartlesville Oklahoma church a few years ago. Based upon our brief meeting, I could see why Rodney was very proud of his family.

Brett, Mark and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Rodney was a good man and a great friend. He was there for our family any time we lost anyone. We could always count on Rodney to be at the house with a hug, a smile. Rodney had so many great stories going back through the many years that our families have been friends.
In the tough days ahead, I pray that your great memories of Rodney will comfort you and that many people share stories showing how special Rodney was and how much he loved his family and friends.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
In the love of the Lord,

We know the family is celebrating the fact that Rodney has seen Jesus and is in awe! What great neighbors Rodney & Barbara were to Bob & Liz. After Bob’s death, Rodney was quick to look out for Liz. I know these past few years have been hard. We’re grateful he has crossed the finish line and finished well! We are praying for all of you.

Dear DeMoss Family,
I’m so sorry for your loss. I knew your dad & mom since high school through community activities and my parents. Rodney & Barbara were always so nice and caring. Never saw them without smiles. This is heaven’s gain and a loss here on earth.
