Dear Rosie,

We are so sorry to hear about Roger. Our warm thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

What I remember the most about Roger, was someone who was humble, kind, generous (during the Halloween with sweets and tooth brush and tooth paste, afterwards :)) , spiritual and always smiling.

We, including our daughters, always miss having you both as our neighbors. You were perfect!

With warm wishes,
Klaudia, Paul, Kate, and Sophie
