I'm so sadden by the loss of Uncle Roger. He taught me how to water ski on the pond as a child. And sat with me on the glider with Uncle Skip as an adult. He was so proud of the new garage that he had built at the camp. The 50 cent tour took over an hour! Thank you for the stories about my Dad that you shared with me that day. I will never forget you.
To my Aunt and Cousins I offer my deepest Sympathies.
