A very handsome picture of Rodney. May he rest in peace after so much pain and suffering. To Marilyn and Jeff and Donna.

When I think of Rodney, my thoughts go back to the good memories of the time when the Brays lived “down at the corner” during my school days. Later in life, it was a pleasure to have Rodney and his band play at dances at our North Hatley Curling Club. He was blessed with a special talent.
My sincere sympathy to you Marilyn, your family and the Bray family.

I was saddened by the news of Rodney's death. I did not know him that well but I can understand the sorrow that you and your family now feel.
After 60+ years of marriage, I know the loss of your husband and father to your children will be a sad time. I can only hope that the sadness you now feel will soon be replaced by the good memories of the past.
Stay strong,
