Money is being raised for the firefighter’s family with a GoFundMe account. Over $125,000 and counting. You can click on the link and donate money yourself for his family. I’m not personally asking you to donate, but it would be a nice gesture to help some people in need. It would help pay for funeral and burial costs.
There are no cliffhangers for this story. An innocent man, a wonderful brave man who served in the Marines and in Iraq, is dead for no good reason and his funeral is to be held this week. The only good thing is the killer was caught and eventually will be put in prison or at least a mental institution because of his recent psychiatric problems.
I can’t believe I saw the man for the final time before his fateful ending. I wondered what he was doing, standing in the street with a boot. If I was on that street corner a few hours later, I would have witnessed Rodeman’s horrifying accident and this post would look a little different. Maybe not with pictures, but with more vivid first-hand detail.
Rodeman’s family and friends are together and mourning his loss. His death became not just local news but national news as well, the story being listed as a “popular” link on Bing and other search engines. He went out a hero and his story is an inspiration to many.
And all was well with the world. Or maybe it isn’t in this case.
