Goodnight my special Rodney
What an incredible journey we went on together..... You were one in a million and my heart breaks that we were forced to say goodbye to you. Thank you Rodney for all the wonderful memories, I will cherish them forever and I will never forget you.
Rodney I feel truly blessed that you were in our lives and I can't express in words how very proud I am of you. I really am the lucky one that got to share my life with you..... You taught me so much and I will never forget that feeling of showing you off in the ring and the
wonderful memories and dreams we made together, nothing will ever compare to you.
Goodnight and sleep tight my sweet beautiful gorgeous Rodney, I shall miss our night time and morning cuddles and kisses and the thought of never seeing you again breaks my heart.... But I promise I will find you again one day.
