Uncle Roger was one of the kindest people I have ever met. He genuinely cared about people. He loved his family and was a great example of what a man of God should be. He represented God in all that he did. He understood people and would always help when they were down or broken. He lifted people up. I will miss him very much . I know he is rejoicing with the Lord and I look forward to the day I will see him again.

My dearest Roger, I don't know where to begin. You've had a special place in my heart for probably close to 50 years or more. I remember you when I was a young child, way too young to know the ways and means of adulthood. I secretly loved you for a long time. I remember laying in bed and both of us confessing we had the same secret. I remember when we were talking and you asked me if for sure I was going to marry you. I told you yes and my conditions. They were all about church. I remember you said you wished someone would have told you that 20 years before. You told me you wouldn't have wasted half your life. I remember you told me we finally got it right, marrying each other. I remember when you told me that you lost the desire to hunt for love, when I told you I would marry you. You said you knew then God was first and foremost in your life. God has blessed us, even when it looked grim. You would always say, baby it's gonna be alright, just remember to thank God for the blessing. I will miss you coming to bed after me, crawling into bed and kissing me, then asking are you awake. I would always ask you, what do you think. Then we would lay there and talk awhile. I remember nights of talking 2 or 3 hours. We talked about all kinds of things, family, church, ourselves, and shed a few tears. You will always be my love and I still want this dance for the rest of my life.

Poppy, I'm honestly lost for words still. We just talked about nature, fishing and walking the river to find dinosaur bones. I loved the fact you never judged anyone and truly seen the good in them. I never had a grandfather and you gave that experience I'll never forget. I remember standing in the yard one day while David and Leslie were cutting down one of the trees and we giggled at the way they were handling the whole situation. Lol. We love and miss you Poppy.

Roger, I remember our childhood memories with great fondness. I remember a time when I was going through some great pain and stress, you sat by my bed and prayed for me, I told you to go and get some rest, you said when my happy sister, gets out of that bed and has a cup of coffee with me. Thank you. You have always been my Hero of happiness and Love, my Hero for fighting for our freedom. I Thank You ,that I have said a million times. Roger, there are a lot of things to thank you for. my children love you they think you hung the moon, your love toward everyone you met. Tell Mom and Dad, Billie, Dixie, Gary, we miss and love them. I will see you soon enough.

What is a hero? A man who devotes his whole life to god and his family. The lessons, the stories, the hours spent in your passenger seat. We went everywhere together and did even more. The voice, the smile, the gentleness in every moment, the twinkle in your eye. The laughter, the late night stacks and early noon coffee. The chair sliding across the floor and the change giggling in your pocket. The pain in your eyes looking into the distance, always followed by a “You know what peewee.” You read me like an open book, probably cause you wrote it. You filled my life with so much love and greatness and set in motion some pretty big shoes to fill. The boat rides, walking in the woods with you secretly mad at me for shaking so loud I scared everything off. The motorcycle rides, the holding on tight to the back of the four wheeler and praying you didn’t go up a big heel and fall backwards on me, came pretty close twice. The late night concerts, oh how I love to hear you sing. Rivers, waterfalls, mountains and caves, rodeos, arrowheads, and animal tracks galore. You taught me how to look at the whole picture, and then turn it around. You taught me how to love, how to be a friend, and how to always give back. My girls will tell their kids all about you, our very own Santa Claus; turned Guardian angel. The strength you had was out of this world, so strong you stole the hearts of everyone you encountered. Without a doubt “my greatest love”. I can only imagine what your going to get into in heaven, but we all know you’ll talk your way out of it. I’m not gonna ask you to save me a spot, you’re already on that, But what I am going to ask you is to remember always how proud this world you built called “family” is of you. I pray in your last moments you found that forgiveness you always searched for, no man ever deserved it more. I love you so big poppy, and I will forever be proud to be the granddaughter of a true hero. Go rest now for your work is done.
