When I think of my brother Roger, I remember that he never wavered from his principles. He was always kind, generous, quick-witted; concerned more for others than for himself. His compassion was reflected in his eyes. His laugh started with the most amazing chuckle. I dearly loved him, and I will always remember him as an extraordinary man.

I was so happy to see you and Vickie and your three little doll babies come to Houston. You both had decided to look around in the jobs and Housing available. Then they went home and you stayed awhile longer. We talked you in to staying with us and we had more fun. My Bob could not believe that Roger and I could stay up till 2 in the morning every night and talk! He would ask “What do you all talk about?” I would tell him “everything”! That is the way Roger is, for he was a smart man. He could talk about anything. When I think of Roger I see a big happy smile that has been there since he was a kid sitting at our big supper table. He used to tell Mom, ‘set the table Mable’! He was truly a pal to us girls. When he was in Houston, we used to call him Little Joe Cartwright because he looked like Little Joe on Bananza. It just broke my heart when he left Houston, for now I was alone again without siblings near by. I noticed when dear Roger talked of other people he never once spoke harshly. He didn’t put them down. That wasn’t his style! I was so proud to call him brother! He will be so missed! God Speed little Brother!

Having my papaw have a huge part in raising me is a huge blessing. I’ll forever cherish our breakfast dates at Nana and Pops, our steakhouse dinners every birthday, every holiday get together, sneaking out of our rooms late at night to meet each other in the kitchen for cookies, our talks, our laughs, everything. I am so grateful to have spent so much of my life with you ❤️ I’ll carry you with me, wherever I go. I love you forever 💕 I’ll be missing you every second of every day until I see you again. RIP papaw, I’ll always be your peewee girl!

I am heartbroken to hear of Roger’s passing. He was such a special person in mine and my late husband Harold’s lives in our younger years. So many wonderful and fun memories we shared with him and Vikki. He was a wonderful sweet and loving man and he will be missed so much by all who had the honor to know him. I will always hold him close to my heart and remember all the great times the 4 of us had together back in our hay days. Sweet memories. Rest In Peace my dear friend. 😢💔🙏
