My friend Roger and I had so many adventures and discussions that it seems to me that I would rather write them in a letter and will do so if you will tell me where to send it.
I would love to tell you how he came to be bucked off a horse into the creek or how come I still have a piece of trace chain in my house and why it isn’t in yours
Susie and I would love to get to know you and your family as we have heard stories about you all Maybe a picture if it is not asking too much

Julie and Leslie, that was the most beautiful and heart felt service. Roger was so blessed to have you as his daughter. What great times and wonderful memories you made over the past couple of years. I am sure it gave him so much comfort knowing he could always count on you and that you would always be there for him. I also believe it made his passing easier to accept knowing that you would be at his side. He was so proud of what a wonderful mother, daughter, wife, and person you are. You did him well!

With Love,
Cyndi
