    Mrs. Rodgers was an incredible person that I have known since I was a child. In all those years I can not remember one moment in which she didn’t have a smile on her face or a negative thing to say about anyone. She was a bright spot in so many peoples lives each and every day. I am thankful to have known her all these years and will miss her greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. I love you Mrs. Rodgers.
