My sincere condolences to you and your family. May the Lord bring comfort and peace during this difficult time. You and Bro Rod made such an impact on me as a young mother and baby in Christ at Pleasantview Baptist Church, thank you both for that! Wish I could have had more years to serve beside you both, but the Lord knee you were needed in Florida. I know Rodney heard “ well done my good and faithful servant” as he stepped into glory! Much love and prayers, Melissa and family

We didn’t really know Rodney, but know his son Greg well, and after reading about Rodney’s service to his fellow people, we can see where Greg gets his motivation to do well by others. God bless the Richter family! Bob, Marianne, Jeremy, Sara, and Zachary.
