You are an amazing person, who had touched so many hearts in your years of life here on earth. You have made so many memories in many peoples hearts Roger. I will never for get the times of hearing you coming up the street blowing your "aauuggaa" horn. And the lovely little donkey that was on the hood. You had always found a way to put a smile on my face no matter the situation. I always enjoyed listening to your stories that you would tell me from your war buddies, to the times of when you and Honey worked together. You were my father figure when I needed you to be there for me. You always welcomed me with open arms and an open heart. I will forever be great full to you because of that. If anything needed to be fixed, we all knew to take it to PaPa. PaPa could fix it all. You were always a strong man. It hurt my heart greatly watching you fight your battle with COPD. One would think that war would be bad, but COPD is the worse. You gave it your all PaPa. You are in a better place now, no more suffering, no more pain. Please watch over all of us that loved you dearly, and guide us down the proper paths. We will meet again, when our times come. I love you Roger!!
