6 Condolences for Richard T. Rodriguez

  • Rich.. This all seems like a bad dream. You’re really gone! You’ve been on my mind since you’re passing constantly. So I did a thing.. in honor of you by making a small memorial with cards, picture, flowers & candles for everyone at work who knew you to come see & sign..& a collection jar of $$$ for your sons. I was hoping to give it to them at your service.. but have been told it’s being held privately. What a shock! There are sooo many co-workers that had wanted to attend your service. Really sad all of DART are not going to get to say their goodbyes to you. I’m going to miss you & that smile..but I will remember you always. Fly high my friend… RIPARADISE
