In Memory of Roderick Dunston – Pay Attention to the Signs (Stroke Awareness)

My love Roderick Dunston just passed away. Life is too short. Roderick was only 45 years old. He previously survived two major strokes and congestive heart failure. He celebrated his 8th year anniversary of survival on February 22, 2018. He was a big advocate for stroke survivors through his organization the Roderick Dunston Foundation and the American Heart Association.

Roderick was such a good person with a Big Heart. I wish I had more time to tell him how much he meant to me and how much I appreciated him before he passed away. I chose to end our relationship two weeks ago because I thought it was best. He had taken such good care of me following my surgery in January but I thought we both needed to step back and focus on our health and recovery.

This weekend we were supposed to go away to Pennsylvania on a ski trip to see Fantasia and Musiq Soulchild. The following weekend we were supposed to attend the CIAA together. He was a retired NCAA referee and I wanted him to experience the games as a spectator and just enjoy the CIAA experience. He was excited about both trips. We never made it. I’m in shock. Processing. You just never know when it’s time. We all need to be thankful for what we have, because it can be taken away from us as fast as a wink. I’ll never have that opportunity to tell him how much I loved him or how proud I was of him. Rest in Heaven Roderick. I love you and until we meet again…💔💔💔
