To Sandy, her family, and Roger's family:
Y'all all know how much I loved Roger. Before I moved home to Savannah, I spent many happy weekends with Roger and Sandy. We a lot of times would do nothing more than spend time playing cards or reading our Kindles, or just talking. I can still see Roger sitting at the kitchen table doing a Sudoku puzzle or reading his Kindle. I hate that I didn't get to see as much of them over the last 3 years and that I didn't get to spend time with him before he got ill. I know that he is in a better place, but he was my friend and I will miss him.

I only met Roger at Tennova Health and Fitness a few years ago; but, would like to consider him a friend. We always met after working out around a cup of coffee and enjoyed talking about most anything and everything. I will sincerely miss him and our time together. I pray God will grant the family and extra portion of His Love, Grace and Mercy in these days!
