Ok this took a couple tries, but we want Rodney's folks to know we're thinking of him. We had the sad news of his passing earlier this month from Steve Farrow, and saw the notice in the newspaper today. Rodney- you were a great friend to talk music and golf with, from old La Marque days to seeing Smokin' Joe Kubek & B'nois King at the Outpost in Clear Lake, and you giving me some of their cassettes! You are one of a kind! Teresa- take care, and we hope you know your Brother was loved by many. Much love! Danny & Reda.
