My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Roger was my neighbor in Whittemore until he went into the service. The years went by and I lost track of the family.

Our prayers are with you and your family at this time of sorrow. We will remember Roger from coffee breaks at the bakery and Wheeler's. He also was an ump for our boys ball games. God keep you all in His loving arms.
