We just found out about Granny Rinker’s passing. She will be missed. Granny, was the light in many people’s hearts. The fond memories we all share will help all of us get thru this sad time. Rodney was granny’s 1st grandson, he was raised by her for a short while.Even after getting married, he remained very close to her. He has many special memories of her and she will deeply be missed. I know that she loved everyone; even those she hadn’t seen in a while. I know Granny loved and gave all she had while she was alive. Rodney Jr. and Dustin and April and Paula all have fond memores of Granny.( These are 4 of her great grandchildren). WE JUST WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW, THAT WE LOVED HER DEEPLY, AND SHE WILL BE MISSED!!The entire family has our deepest sympathies.
