  1. Roger was loved and told the world about Jesus, and he ministered to those in need. His smile and love will never be forgotten. Another brother to greet us when we get to Heaven. He may be having a visit with Chuck and laughing about the fun times they shared.
    Praying for Lois and family as God heals the broken hearts, and gives us all the Blessed Hope of reuniting in Heaven.

  2. I am so sorry to hear and find out about Roger. He was such a wonderful friend and I know he will be missed from all friends. My condolences to yours and his family.
