Dear Kathy,

All my prayers and wishes are with you at this time. Rodger was truly a character in my time of 18 years at Combustion Engineering/ABB working for and with Rodger. I have lasting memories from my first interview with Rodger, the tour of your clock museum, up to the last when you all ventured out to Trussville to watch your nephew play all-star baseball. He was definitely an inspiration to me.

God bless you.

I hought the world of Rodger and glad he is now without sickness or pain. Hope he finds Arch, Joe, Stan and all the rest of them who will be greeting him. Hugs to you

You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I went to Phillips with Linda and Roger and always enjoyed they're thoughtfulness, kindness, and friendship. Although it's been more than 60 years I'll always remember. PHS60
