Mrs. Rodgers was a wonderful woman! Kind, sweet and very caring! Spent a lot of time at the Rodgers household while at Bergen and throughout our College days and remember her always in the kitchen with a warm smile and offering us something to eat. She always made you feel welcomed while in her home. Very fond memories of Mrs. Rodgers. She will be missed. RIP.
Mr. Rodgers, Maggie and Zeke you are in our thoughts!
