Heaven just got a lot brighter today when Rod entered the pearly gates. While I am selfishly so sad and totally devastated that I won’t get to see him on globe anymore, I am exulting for the spirit he is carrying with him and spreading to everyone up there…including my papa. Rod, you will be missed terribly. Everything from your kindness, to your warm smile and bear hugs, to your friendship, to you extraordinary ability to build ANYONE( including me) feel special. YOU are special. And will never be forgotten. Love you BIG, and can’t wait to be welcomed into heaven someday with that one-of-a-kind infectious giggle of yours. Thanks for changing MY world, @roddurham. Now run do you up there, buddy !!!!A photo posted by Heidi Powell (@ realheidipowell) on Mar 14, 2016 at 9:41 am PDT
