Clay & I were so sorry to hear of Rogers Passing. I had many a long conversation with Roger when you and I served on the School Board together. He gave me a lot of parenting advice actually. I always thought a lot of Roger. He was always kind to me . He loved to pull my chain as you would put it. He will be missed for sure. We are praying for you Buffy and the Family.

Connie, I'm so sorry to hear about Roger. Granted, we banged heads before, but in the end, we were still good friends. Not long before his surgery, he stopped by the concrete plant. No one else was there except me. We sat on the porch talking about everything, and I think we both really enjoyed it. After that last visit, I'd meant it when I told him we needed to ride around one day soon, I really wish we had... He got a kick out of aggravating me, as I did him. I've had y'all completely in my prayers since Tiffany called me with the news. He was a good man and will be missed by many. I'll always hold y'all close in my heart.

Mrs. Connie, my prayers go out to you Buffy, and the girls. Roger was always there to love and support all of you. Mom loved you both so much, but I know that she is showing him around Heaven as we speak. We love you and will be keeping you all in our prayers.
