    RIP Dr. Roskens. I will never forget that you helped me getting to freedom and to the greatest nation on earth… the USA. I still remember the day we met in Beijing in 1988 and the day you and Mrs. Roskens invited us to your home in Lincoln. May God bless your soul and comfort your family! Love and respect, ALWAYS!

    Mary and I are very sorry about the passing of Ron. He met much to me in my life. He was a fraternity brother, a mentor and a model to me. He did Omaha proud with a life that excelled and kept proper priorities. We will make a contribution to the Lauritzen Gardens in his memory.
    Mary and Bob Bernier
