To the family, I give my love. Dad helped me through a lot when I finally got to him, such a big heart. He will certainly be missed. A little bird told me to keep my head up and if it's down you better be prayin', keep that in mind. Lots of lots to you all.

I am sullen, and send My warmth and regard.
Roger summed up is not an easy task, however~He was the most influential man of my life. The depth of love for his children, and passion for loyalty regardless of strife formed solidly as a result of my relationship with him.
For the sorrow those of you are laden with, I bid you healing and clarity and strength in your families.
Blessings, and Blessed Be

Dear Pam & Family member I'm so sorry to hear about Roger. My deepest condolence to each and everyone of you all! I'm Rogers cousin, the last time I was in Ohio in Oct 2012 I tried to locate Roger but no one had his address since he moved. Sending you healing prayers and May God Bless you during this time. I loved Roger very much even though we lost contact over the years of our lives we still loved each other. He was a wonderful, loving, compatient person and the greatest any one. I send you love and prayers you way. Rosemarie Schwab Bowles.
