    As kids growing up it was a treat to go to Grandma’s House. Then always looking across the field to see Uncle Roger and Families house. It always was a treat to see Uncle Roger outside doing things in the yard. I would always walk over to say hi. His special smile and his kindness to everyone, means so much. Time has passed by so quickly. I’m so sorry and sad it did just that. We will miss all the times we did have together and will always remember. To Pat, Karen, and Leigh Ann So sorry for the lost of Roger. It was hard for me when I did hear of his passing. Will keep you in our prayers. Love ❤️ you guys. “Miss you Uncle.”
