I have many memories of my Uncle Rodney. He spent hours with my brother and I playing rummy and spades! Me and Rodney were always on one team with my brother and my dad on the other. We ALWAYS won!! He would tell a joke and laugh harder at himself than anything else which made it all that much more hilarious! I love him and I will miss him.
