To Nola, Marsha, Connie and other family members: My sincere sympathies to you all on the passing of your great Mom and my friend Alice Belke. I worked with Roger at WLBK during the late '60s and early 70's and got to know him and his wife very well. Was invited to their home near 7th & Sycamore Rd neighborhood several times. Always helpful, friendly. Just great people. In the old days we used to say "salt of the earth". I even know where Sparta and Tomah WI are. Spent many summer camps doing my annual National Guard duty there at what was then called Camp McCoy. I have many fond memories of both Alice and Roger. I know you guys do as well. Never forget. I pray for their eternal Peace.
