We are so sorry for your loss. May the Lord wrap His arms around you and comfort all of you. We remember so many good times with your dad. He could put a smile on anyone's face.

I can’t even express how saddened I am about the passing of “Grandpa Roger”. I was an active caregiver of his during his stay at miller’s and followed him from his stay from 300 hall to the 200 hall. I would bring my dog Dorothy in many times during his stay and would crack up at the things he would ask about her. Roger reminded me so much of my own grandfather and I’m beyond blessed to have known him for over the year that I did. My condolences go out to Marty and her family, it was truly a pleasure to know Roger. Sadly I will not be able to attend but know that he will be on my mind heavy on Friday.
