Mr. And Mrs. Rogers have been wonderful neighbors. We enjoyed watching them take walks around the lake holding hands. Their love of dogs showed when they brought a dog back to Evans who was abandoned in the woods near their old homesite in Tennessee on a visit. Our dog would love to run to their house when we would leave him out. They always petted him and feed him like their own. Mr. Rogers was such a learned man and would tell us stories of his early life. He had such a hearty laugh and beautiful sparky blue eyes when he spoke. We just naturally loved him , and he was always gracious to us. We will miss him, but have fond memories that we will keep in our hearts.
