Roger impressed me as one with a heart for others. Saddened by the news of his going. As one of the first "run" (older) of many family cousins ,I pray God surrounds you with His love and comfort as you grieve over your loss. Maybe He needed him for higher duties.

Roger, you were my "Knight" in Shining Armour after Andy left us in 2012. You stepped up to the plate and helped me with not only support and financial issues but you were so caring. Then, when Andy and I lost our middle son, Chris, in 2014, again you took over 100% and my "Knight" in Shining Armour was there again. I know the Good Lord has a special place in his Majestic Heaven for you. And, please don´t forget to find your Sister-in-Law some of the biggest and ripe red tomatoes up there so I´ll have some when I get there! LOL. You will be missed more than you can ever know. I know you´ll be watching over my sister, Jackie and the rest of the family. Go with God Roger and much love being sent your way!
