Roger is my first cousin that always made me laugh. He was so kind to my parents in Gettysburg. I loved when he came to Texas and would visit my husband and I. Love to the family

Roger is my dad’s (Kirby Linder) first cousin. At family reunions Roger would give all of us kids $1 to get an ice cream at the concession stand in the park & I always loved that! So tonight I had an ice cream in his honor! Rest well Roger, till we meet again in heaven.
