My most sincere condolences go out to all the family at this time. I know for certain - we really never lose the people we love, because their love always leaves an imprint in our lives and memories. Somehow, we can all find comfort in knowing that our lives have been richly blessed with those memories. Roger had the greatest personality and was the nicest person that I had ever met. He will always be missed and never forgotten.

On Wednesday the 22nd three of us showed up to play doubles tennis in our regular Wednesday night group at the Sports Racket. We were shocked to learn why Roger was not there. He was a good tennis player, a good man and a good sport. He will be sorely missed and always remembered.

I only knew Roger from playing in tennis leagues. He was a friendly
competitor, a "good sport," and it was always good to see him, if not
to play against him. I am so sorry that he was taken from you so
suddenly and untimely, and hope you can take strength from your faith
and his memory to carry on. Alex Newmark, Forest.
