My favorite memory of Roger was sitting in the dialysis waiting room with my dad. Others were there also. I listened to Roger share his faith in Jesus Christ. He was totally unashamed. I thought at the time what a great man. He was always very kind and respectful not only to others in the waiting room but also to his wife Rita. What a blessing he was to me and my dad. Since my dad went to be with the Lord in March it’s a beautiful picture to envision Roger and dad, Bob Foster, walking those streets of gold together. Roger will be missed.
