Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

As a fellow Vermonter, Francophile, and UNC alumnus, I had much in common with Dr. Vogler and took every class I could with him from 1997-2001. He nurtured my love of French language and culture and I will always hold fond memories of him. In a return of one of his favorite classroom expressions: "C'était un homme digne de respect." It was a pleasure knowing him.

One of the sweetest (and funniest) people I've ever met. I'll never forget him. My deepest sympathies to his family.

Dr. Vogler,
Even though I only had the honor of speaking with you a few times, that was enough for me to see what a kind and gentle soul you had. Your legacy is one of service to your fellow man.

You were a man loved by many, because you showed many love. Your memory lives on in the lives of the many you have touched. It was a privilege to have met you and I am better for knowing you.

Rest in peace, sir.

My deepest sympathy to his family.
He was chairman of my dissertation committee in 1979 at UNC Chapel Hill.
I will always remember him as a warm and caring person. Paul Carter, UNC 1979

I loved seeing him at Chapel of the Cross every Sunday morning. Just a week or so before Dr. Vogler passed away he wrote a recommendation letter for me. His sense of humor, his kindess, and his enthusiasm for his work and life was priceless. We will miss him so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family whom he obviously loved so much.

What a kind and gentle soul! He will be sorely missed.

Dr. Vogler was one of my favorite professors at UNC. My wife and I, who met in his French class, will remember him fondly.

Fred and Mary Frances were the first new friends my partner Stanley and I made as a young couple 33 years ago. They opened their home and hearts to us with grace and gin. It was quite a time! We will always remember Fred's sweet disposition, his hypnotic voice, his handsomeness, and his scholarly aplomb.
