Dear Rachel and family,
I cannot believe that Rod has passed away, I am so sorry for you all and of course anyone who knows him.
Rod is someone who had that amazing knack of being able to make an instant – and positive – impression. I’ve got clients who have known Rod for many years who are shocked and saddened by his passing, and clients who have met him just once for a single, one-hour meeting, who have been equally touched and inspired by him.
From a personal perspective, I’ll miss most his unrelenting friendliness. He always had time for anyone, whether it was about clients and IDC business, or Rugby and Wales’s Six Nations chances, or anything that was on one’s minde. There’s a huge hole in all of our lives.
And I realise for you it must feel like an unbearable, unfillable hole. I’m so sorry for all of you, I cannot begin to imagine what you all must be going through. My thoughts are with you all.
