    Our Son is Our Angel looking down and watching over Us, and saying he wants us to live and let Live. He wants each
    of Us to know that he’s at Peace. He understands very well that We are all very sad, and heartbroken. He wants us to always remember the hard times, and the good times but he wants Us to rise up over the Pain, and Sorrow, and to keep right on trusting God Almighty. Rod is with all of Our Other .. Love ones who have gone on to Glory ahead of him. So try and keep taking one step at a time, and keep asking God for strength. My Heart feels like it has been rung inside out, But I know that Our hearts as well as each of yours will heal in due time. I feel that Our trust in God will help Us to slowly heal over a period of time…I am trying as hard as I can to stay prayerful and trying to keep my mind on many of the good times we have all shared together as a Family In Love. Our love for each other will help us to get through this painful time!!
    Rest in Paradise Son
    Papa, Mamma Ogans

  3. Our family has lost so many loved ones Rod was my oldest nephew and I will really miss him. He would always call to see how I was doing even though he was sicker than me. He would call to make me feel better and I should have been calling him. I did get a chance to visit with him before he passed and that was a great day for the both of us .Rod helped me to deal with my stroke by keeping me up lifted. My nephew was a very strong saint God has called an awesome warrior home. Hefought

  4. Precious Memories
    So many to name. When God made Roderick, he broke the mold because he knew there would not be another one, just him. No one couldn’t fit the mold that God made of Roderick Maurice Ogans, no one. God loved you so much that he would not let you suffer any longer. Now he is at peace resting in the arms of Jesus his Savior. We will miss you, but rest until we meet again, at Jesus’s feet. Well done!

    The Loss of Our Son Roderick has left up going through a Heartbreak that is Painful and we ask God for the strength to get through this difficult time in Our Lives. Rod was a beautiful Son inside and out. We thank You, God, for the time You Blessed us to have shared with him.
    The Lord is our refuge and stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD have never forsaken those who seek you. We give God the Glory, and in our Hearts, we know Our Son is resting in Paradise, and let us say he’s on a Beautiful Vacation in Paradise, in Glory
    Rest Well Our Beloved Son Roderick Rod Ogans
