Guest Book Highlights

June 19, 2018 "Joan and the entire Rogers Family, My deepest sympathy at the loss of Bobby. He was a great guy that I met at age 12 at the Harlem Apollo. My mom use to cook for the Miracles & the Temptations and take food for them to enjoy between shows (in the 60s). Then we relocated to Detroit (right around the corner from Benny's (Mullins) Flamingo, where all the Motown men had their hair maintained and or shopped at Jack's Esquire. Aww those were the days. Bobby was NEVER too busy to take a picture, sign an autograph or just acknowledge a passer-by who saw him and yelled out a "hello". He had a larger than life personality and such a sense of humor. As his family I know you all will miss him more but to his fan's we appreciated his down-to-earth and caring personality. He will be sorely missed but his talent will live forever." - Dallas (Detroit, MI)
