    Still hurts.

    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. One of your favorite holidays and well...mostly because we have all the family in the home. Tomorrow there will be no get together at the house. You would be disappointed but people are moving on which is a good thing right? I wish I could just have one last hug, one last conversation, one last something. I just miss you so much dad.

    Rod was my baseball buddy, even though we cheered for different teams from each side of the country we could share thoughts and opinions on what was going on in the baseball world. Rod wasn't the kind of man to let sports rivalries stand in the way of friendship, he was a man of honor and a person I was glad to call friend. I'm going to miss our baseball talks and the occasional dinners out with our wives. Our little part of the world has lost a true friend but Heaven has gained a man of honor.

    A Good Friend for Many Years

    Thanks for creating this site, Darcy. I have so many good memories of your father and his kindness toward me and my family. He was a good friend of New Hope Christian Church, too, and we have a shelf of videos of our church musicals to prove it. I loved the twinkle in his eye when he said something about my sermon or cracked a joke about baseball. I am looking forward to hearing other people tell some of their stories about Rod at the memorial service. See you there. Jon Ulm
