"Although Rodney has transcended this physical plane, what he stands for -- Kindness, humor, humility, and heroic struggle against all odds -- remains, and is the essence of the human experience. Rodney will always represent what it feels like for all of us to crave a little respect."

"The whole pasture looked like our meal
We didn't need speedometers
We could manage cocktails out of ice and water
I wouldn't want to be faster or greener than now
You were with me
O you were the best of all my days."
--From "Animals" by Frank O'Hara.
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.
