    Sometimes we don’t understand why God makes these choices!! For some of us we will learn and always be aware of things to come and others it is total devestation and will be hard to overcome. With Gods plan our HEARTS will heal slowly with the help of true friends and the Lord as our krutch to lean on.
    May the Lord keep you close and always know that he will be there for you always!!!

  7. Roger will be greatly missed in our family. I just wanted to share one funny memory i have of Roger. Our grandmother was once fussing at Roger when we were younger because he needed to cut his ‘long’ hair. And Roger matter of factly replies and points to a picture on the wall of Jesus, and said ‘well granny, Jesus had long hair’! As far as i know this was the first time our granny couldn’t find a reply! 🙂 Rest in peace Roger. We love you.
