My heart is heavy...the last time I saw Roger was early January. He came into our office to pay his insurance premium, as he did every month. These visits were special; full of jokes, catching up, and discussing family. He truly was family to all of us! Roger had a great outlook on life. I remember being tearful during a conversation w/him and he told be "there's always a reason to smile". It was a simple message but one I needed to hear and gain perspective. I think back on that conversation often; in this busy world he took the time to listen and help someone in need. Roger will be greatly missed.
