I would like to extend my warmest sympathies to the Davies family on the loss of such a great man. I did not know Roger personally, but I have the distinct pleasure of being connected to his lovely Daughter, Kathy Sayre, and her entire family. I know Kathy via our church and she, along with some other special ladies, have a group called The Snow White Club...whereby we get together weekly to share in fellowship, friendship, and great love for one another. With Kathy it is easy to see that the apple does not fall far from the tree as she and her entire family are the most gracious, loving, faithful group of people. GOD has another Angel.
