      Scott, thank u so much sir! Me and dad talked pretty much daily sometimes for hours and hours. The memories he shared with u guys were something we both loved talking about. When he brought me to ireland i was still a kid. You guys all made me feel welcome and made me part of the crew for a few days. You know he would want to know u were doing well spiritually and he would want to hug your neck 1 more time. If u ever find yourself in this area and u need anything at all call me.

    Rodney was such a good friend to us. When we first moved out here, he helped us bushhog our land and he didn’t even know us. He was always helping people. He had the heart of a servant. He had a love for God and a heart for Israel and a life that reflected his faith in God. I treasure the video we made about Israel, having heard many stories about his trip to the Holy Land. He gave us a watermelon he grew last year and we sat out on our deck and ate it together. We’ll dearly miss our friend and neighbor and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. We could never say enough good things about the person he was…

    All of us who knew Rodney–KNOW just how wonderful a man that He is. Considerate; Kind; Caring–Full of Love. It was a great pleasure to spend time with Rod because of His character. Rodney once stayed with us (Arthur & Krista), Our washing machine broke-it was not working; Rodney went out and bought us a New Washing Machine.
    We pray that all who knew and Loved Rodney will take Great Comfort–Rodney is with the LORD and He is patiently waiting until we get there for a Great Reunion.
    Our Prayers are for you–We Loved Rodney Watts.

    I am so sad to hear of his sudden passing. I will miss him so much! Whenever I was feeling down or under spiritual attack, I would call Rodney and he would encourage me with his soothing voice, his great faith, powerful prayers and knowledge of the Holy scriptures. One specific phone call he told me, “Lift your hands and just start praising Him right now.” I did just that, and almost instantly I was lifted up spiritually, full of joy, with renewed hope and strength. I called him back to tell him about it and I could “hear” him smile as he said, “That’s my girl!” I could always count on him to be there. He showed me the great state of TN, which I fell in love with. He taught me “Hooty hoooo!” which always made me smile whenever he said it. I’m so sad that I cant pick up the phone any more to hear his voice. I wish now I had visited and called more often. To Nadia, Miles and the rest of the family, I offer prayers of love, comfort and peace during this difficult time.Your dad was so proud of all of you.We will all miss him so very much but I know he is rejoicing in the arms of our Lord and Savior. Be comforted in knowing, we will all see him again. With Love, Luan

      Thank you so much Ms. Luan. I actually called out a hooty hoo today at the service. 🙂 It was a beautiful service.

    Watts family,
    The Grace family sends our condolences and are here for you. I remember meeting your Dad a couple times and he seemed like a great guy, laid back and I know he will be missed.
