There was never a time when I saw Roger where he did not greet me with a smile, with kindness, and joy. Every single time. He was so inclusive and involved.... my heart hurts for the pain of loss. Even as a simple acquaintance, it is a loss I feel.
Roger was a light. I feel so lucky to have known what it was to have had it shine on me in all these years....

Roger and Jill bought my house in Robinson Street. I had one cat left when I moved. When that last cat passed away I called and asked I could bury this cat with his brother near the corner of the yard. Roger sounded a little surprised but did not hesitate to agree. When I arrived with the cat Roger had already dug the hole making it easier on me. He became my hero that day.
When I moved I was in such a hurry, I had to leave some things in the garage. When I moved the last of it a few weeks later, I told Roger I was aware that the garage was supposed to be included with the house in the sale and thanked him for his patience. He was great at tolerating my bad jokes. This is a wonderful family and I have fond memories of each one. May the strength that has brought them this far carry then through the dark days ahead and bring them back into the sunshine
