    Miss Dawna, I was saddened to learn that my friend Roger, had passed away. I have know Roger for many years. I was a life long friend with his first wife Frances, and son Larry. Roger was one of a kind, (lovable, kind, funny, and most of all a caring person) He love people an could talk with you all day long. He never met a stranger. He and Miss Dawna enjoyed all their trips to the Coach House . He could have ben a greeter for them, as they sat in the front most of the time. I know that all that knew him will miss him sorely. To the rest of the family, may God make smooth the path ahead of you in the days and months ahead. I will miss, my friend and his warm and sweet smile. RIP .

  • Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Roger was a Wondeful man. I feel truly blessed to have got to know him. I will miss his smiling face everyday. I will keep your family in my prayers. He will be missed. I only knew him for about two years but it didn’t take long to love him.
