  • From dust we begin, and dust we return to.
    Leaving our footprints along the way of our life and with
    the ones we loved. We will carry your smiles in our hearts,
    as we continue on with our own journey…remembering you;
    loving those who you loved.

  • Wherever a beautiful soul has been,
    there is a trail of beautiful memories .
    Llke grains of sand on the beach
    they stay forever washing in and out
    of our heart.

  • Roger, I got to know you well enough to realize what a sharp, wise, kind, and humorous person you were. Along with your being missed by all those who knew and loved you over the years, you are also missed by many of us who got only an all-too-brief glimpse of the person you really were.
