Sorry to hear about Roger. Though he was too young, it's difficult to believe how fast the years pass. I remember playing cowboy with him when I was a kid. He was a regular in Sparky's. He will be missed by all - especially Helen and Robert. You have my sympathy.

I've known Roger for many years. I even remember him in school although he was a few grades ahead of me. He's one of those guys who you think will be around forever. I think of him as one of Stanhope's "characters" and I mean that as a compliment. He and his brother Robert were in Sparky's a lot and I was always glad to see him as he was such fun to visit with. He was always friendly . It seems strange - and is very sad - that he won't be there anymore. We will all miss him very much. My thoughts and prayers are with Helen and Robert. God bless!
