  • We are sorry for your loss. We pray that God will give your families strength and comfort at this time as you cherish the memories of the past.

  • Sincere sympathy on the loss of a great man. Rodney was my mother’s (Marie Wantland Veatch) first cousin. I remember Rodney mostly as Carol’s husband and my interactions with them when I was an RN at KCH. Both he and Carol were lovely Christian people. I am blessed by knowing them on this side of heaven.

  • My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Dad. He now joins his brothers maybe for some football talk.
    It has been my pleasure to be part of your family.
    I’ll never forget the visit Rodney & Keith made to visit Merle. That meant so much to Merle. So sad. But now they can visit again.
    Love, Aunt Sue. Aka Susan

  • Dear Keith and Kent,

    The day finally arrived, although we were hoping it would never come. All four McMillan boys are now gone. Fortunately for those of us who are now left behind, they shared with us wonderful stories of their many adventures.

    Uncle Rodney had great stories! My Mother and I especially loved hearing about the time he spent in France during the war. We will miss him so much. Our memories of Uncle Rodney and his brothers will remain with us for the rest of our lives, and we know that one day a great reunion awaits our family.

    Until then, love lives on.

    We offer these words of comfort and hope to those who are reading this:
    Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
    -Joshua 1:9 (KJV)

    Dear cousins and nephews, Keith and Kent, may the comfort of the Holy Spirit guide you now and in the days ahead.

    Cousin Melanie and the other (Ohio) Aunt Sue
