Dear JoAnn, Chris and Family,

So Sorry to hear of Roger's passing. Please accept my deepest condolences.

I'm going to miss Roger. I enjoyed numerous conversations and time spent with him. He was helpful to me during a very challenging time in my life, and he understood the physical challenges I was dealing with I think due to his own experience with somewhat similar ones and unfortunately more severe which I know was hard to bear for him and for all involved.

I pray that God comforts and blesses you all and that you find peace as you make your way through this challenging transition.

Sincerely,

Your friend,

Frank B.

Joann and Family: Our sincerest condolences for you loss. Roger was a really great guy! He has left many memories in our hearts so I can't imagine how many are in yours. Those will always be with all of us. He was always calm and quiet, gentle - perfect for a pilot and I would guess, a Father. He will be missed by all.
