  2. Hello Mac,
    Like those who have just signed in, I have just found out about Rod’s passing. I was really surprised to receive Bob Foley’s call and to find out about Rod. I called Arnold who lives next to me and he was already aware of Rod’s death. I know what you are going through because Laura passed away about three and a half years ago with cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Dear Mac and Family,

    Bob Foley passed the news onto me this A.M.; I’m really sorry and want to express my deepest sympathy. I knew Rod at Petshce, Co, and really liked him alot — he was a caring, sharing person, but most of all, I remember Rod’s deep sense of Personal Integrity, a rare trait these days.

    Love to you, Mac.

    Dear Mac,
    I was shocked to hear about Rod, I loved him as if he was one of mine, & you too. It seems the best die young. We lost our youngest son, Ricky at 38. He had an Aortic dissection. I would love to hear from you. How are you doing? Are you still working? Send us a message. Our deepest sympathies are with you, and you are in our prayers.
    Love Evelyn & Tom Bobo
