We were in a Sunday School class at Grace E. F. Church with Roger until he was unable to continue. He was a faithful attendee and certainly missed. Some time later we met again and it was so good to see him out and about and that he remembered us. Roger was a very likable, pleasant man. We look forward to meeting him again one day.

Every month Roger would come to the Coumadin Clinic at the Longmont Clinic where I would test his blood. He always had a smile on his face and was gracious in all he said. I looked forward to caring for him.
He faithfully attended Grace Evangelical Free Church where he always gave us a pleasant greeting. We will miss Roger, but am thankful that without a doubt we will see him again in heaven.

I did not know Roger well, but I saw him at church on Sundays. He always had a smile & a greeting. I was sad to learn he had died. My sympathies to the family.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." (Matthew 5:4 KJV)
"Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows." (Isaiah 53:4 KJV)
"May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ mightily bless each one of you, and give you peace. What a wonderful God we have--He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Source of every mercy, and the One who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardship and trials." (II Corinthians 1:2-4 Living Bible)
May you sense God's peace and comfort during this time.
God bless, Joy Youngman
