  1. Ronnie and I just wanted to express our sincerest sympathy over Roger’s passing. He has been the PERFECT neighbor and friend for the past 8 years and for the many years prior to that while my parents were alive. We will truly miss seeing him each and every day.

  2. Joanne, It was a priviledge to be Roger’s case manager at LifeCare, & to know such a loving, supportive family. You were truly there for him & helped him get home when he so desperately needed to be there. God bless – Chris
