Dear Bernice, I just wanted to write you and say how very much Roger meant to me. He is a great friend. I learned a great deal from him, not only from his words but more importantly his actions-he taught me to how to laugh and not to take things so seriously and I am so very grateful for knowing him. It upsets me greatly that I cannot come to the visitation, I will be undergoing my own medical procedures this week out of state. I will think about Roger at this time and tearfully but also happily-and recall all the times we joked amongst ourselves and others about our "singing" careers. God Bless you and I thank God myself for people like Roger-He is a blessing and an honor to know. I will miss him dearly. Sincerely, Rob Bosworth

Bernie, Cindy, Jeff, and Scott, We are so saddened at the loss of our good neighbor, Roger. We will miss his mischevious smile and chuckle whenever he made us laugh at his witty comments. He will always be remembered for his generosity and kindness. The world has lost a truly great man.
