Roger also loved to travel and mom (Carol Scott) and I were able to take a cruise together with Roger and Marlene to Turkey and Greece and had a wonderful time!! I wish I could add more than one photo but here is one of the great ones. Mom has greeted Roger and they are having their favorite Jim Beam cocktails in heaven because for sure up there it is 5 o'clock all the time!! :)
Going to miss you Roger!! Hugs to the family

Fondly and with deepest Sympathy,
