We are so sorry for your loss. Roger was a great guy. He always had an ear for listening & helping/giving advice when needed. I enjoyed talking to him & you; whenever I saw you two. I enjoyed the few years I got to work with him. I (KinDee) am kind of in shock; I just found out. We will always remember Roger (he passed on my husbands b-day); I'll never forget him. Again, we are so sorry for your loss.

Carma and family,
Roger will be greatly missed. I have not seen him in years but have very fond memories of him and dad when he milked for us. He was always one to remember us through the years when we would bump into him.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
