Today I sat in front of my TV viewing your funeral, sad that I could not be there for our last goodbye. We are not in normal times. This virus has all of us torn apart. But rest assured I will always cherish our growing up as a tight Garza family. I am proud to have such a caring brother. My heart is heavy with our loss. I’m sure that God has a time and purpose for each of us, I’m sure that He is happy and pleased to call you in .

Roger, I have fond memories of you. In Junior HS you played the coronet in the Ella Barnes JH Band. Poor neighbors, you had to practice in our backyard. You were the only family member who was musically inclined.
At Roy Miller HS you were a senior and I was a sophomore. You advised me on the first day not to get lost,. However I was sitting in my Spanish class when you walked in and realized that you were in the wrong room. You were the one that was lost. I had a good laugh over that one. May you rest in peace.

Rest In Peace cousin Roger. The news of your passing was mind blowing. It hit us quite hard.
Will always remember when we went to visit y’all, and you took us to the beach, little Ricky was just a few months old. You held him in your arms like he was your son. We will forever cherish those moments together with you.
Until we me again cousin

I think my best memory of Rogelio was his shy little smile. He always seemed to be in a good mood and always talked to me when we saw each other. To me he was one of the sweetest friends a girl could have. Rest in peace my friend of old.

We are so sorry to hear of the loss. I remember going to Corpus with Mom (Sandy) and Dad (Robert Cisneros) our first stop was always at Tia Sara house. Roger you are going to be greatly missed. May you rest in peace on behalf of Robert Cisneros we extend our condolences.
Dad was with heavy emotions to hear of his passing. His memory he wanted to share is that he would always take us to the dog races, places to eat and always was such a wonderful cousin.
He was so proud of his truck. We are going to miss you cousin.
Love,
Robert, Sandy Cisneros and the girls
