  12. Roger was a very kind & giving person, and never excepted anything in return. He kept his promise to my husband & checked on Chad & I on a regular basis during our time of need. He was always just a phone call away. Anytime I needed something or just needed to know how to fix something-he was always there. He was truly a good friend and will greatly missed by all. May God bless you.
