I will always remember you saying the rosery at my dads wake, that was very thoughtful of you and playing in the cribbage league on Wednesday nights. You were the only person I lost nine games with but still had a good time. I know that you are up their telling someone a joke or playing cribbage.

I know Roger from The All American. My mom lives there & I had the opportunity to get to know Roger. We always chatted a bit and he'd kiss my hand. He was a joy to talk to.
I'm grateful I had the chance to know him, he *ALWAYS* made me smile. He will be missed.
