If I know you and Sondra (and I do), you're both having a party right now. Grief is for the living, because we miss the loved one who's moved on...and, Daddy, you are going to be missed...every second, of every day until I get to hear your voice again, because my grief is huge. I love you. Rest easy.

We know Roger is in heaven because he gave his testimony to me. He said he ask Jesus to forgive him of his sins and come into his heart. He said He did and he knew he was going to heaven when he died. We are praying for all of you.

A new body, no pain and suffering. It’s hard to say goodbye, I know this. You must find comfort in knowing that he is at peace now and heaven rejoices as all who have loved him and have gone before him are there to welcome him. I cherish fond memories of all 6 of us kids and Sondra and Brenda, uncle Roger and aunt Elaine at Granny’s house in Savannah... never a dull moment! I will always remember his robust laugh and twinkling eyes and a heart as big as Texas, will be forever missed.
Brenda, Bobbi, Aunt Elaine and other extended family, I send my heartfelt love and support at this difficult time.
I love you Uncle Roger. May you Rest In Peace.
