    Our hearts go out to everyone of Rogers family. He was a wonderful cousin that leaves many great memories for me as a youngster.

    I was just watching the service and it brought me to tears. You were blessed with him being in your lives and vice-versa. I loved him as I do all of your family. That is enough from me except to note it stirred emotions deep with me. Blessings to you. I know you enjoy a warm loving family unit. If in the future you ever wish, feel free to contact me. Bob Budahl. Roger’s brother-in-law.
