  2. Dear Rhoads Family,
    I would like to express my deepest sympathy in the lost of your husband, father, and grandfather. My dad always spoke so highly of Charlie as a coworker and friend at Empire Fence (Buffalo Road). I can remember as a child going to work with my dad and Charlie taking me out to the shop and letting me help. Though there’s so little one can do or say, may it help to know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
    With Deepest Sympathy,
    Kristin Still (Don’s daughter)
