Not sure what to say?

It's been a long time since I wrote, but just last week I thought of you and the joy you brought to so many. As if you don't know, DeVere turned out to be a fine young man. Yes, he did make it to the big screen as you predicted. He's tall (6'4" to be exact), and doing all he can to be the artist you always knew he'd become. HBO and TV shows, yes, even on an off Broadway. Wow, he's doing really well. Just checking in with all the angels to let them know they're still sorely missed and...

Remembering my friend, the late Prentis Rogers, who once challenged me to "do stories you don't think you can do." I've tried to apply that to every aspect of my life, and I'm heartened when it's his mellow, hopeful voice I hear in the back of my head.

Still miss you brother.

Oh how I miss you so. What an honor to have been blessed with your graciousness and to have you as a brother-in-law. Seems only yesterday you were chuckling with the family and getting ready to do something exciting and fun. It's been two years now and we still love and miss you very much. Say hello to the rest of the angels for us.

WE are sorry to her about this loss. We will keep this family in our prayers!

I am indeed blessed and favored to have met the spirit that resided
in Prentis Rogers.Prentis ,Yvonne and Devere became a part of my extended family when I resided in
Atlanta.Real people that exemplifed
family unity and love.When I came over to the house or I called them on the phone we shared such good times with one another .We laughed had profound talks and I miss those times.God is present even now .
When all is said and done the Lord

I did not know Mr. Prentis personally, but just hearing others speak so highly of him let me know that he was a good man. I was blessed with the opportunity to play in the first Prentis Rogers Memorial Classic for the East Team. I really enjoyed every second of it. My team won the championship against the South Team. I want to thank Mr. Prentis and everyone else who made this tournament possible. God Bless the Rogers family and friends.

I am saddened and shocked to hear of Prentis' passing. Although I hadn't seen him in years, He and I graduated from St Joe's together. I always enjoyed reading his work and took pleasure in rembering our days together in school. Prentis was the sports editor of our paper and I was the editorial editor. I wasn't at all surprised to see the great success to which his love of journalism took him.

The Smalley family in Lexington, North Carolina will always cherish the memory of Prentis. He always showed much love for our family. We all appreciate and remember the effort that he and Yvonne exhibited in planning and coordinating the 2001 family reunion that was held in Savannah, Georgia.

We want Yvonne and the rest of Prentis' family to know that he will be greatly missed but not forgotten. We love you.

Your cousins,
Bill and Esther
