My deepest sympathy to you and your families during this difficult time. Roger was deeply immersed into his career,
friendly, always smiling. I still envision him with the whistle and sneakers in they gym during physical education.
May he rest in peace.

From: Bob and Stephanie Dolsky
Relation: Relationship - How did you know the deceased?

In his book The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote:

In one of the stars
I shall be living
In one of them
I shall be laughing
And so it will be
as if all the stars
were laughing
when you look
at the sky at night

And so it will be that when you look skyward, the twinkle that Uncle always had in his eyes, will be reflected by the stars.

Much love,

Bob and Stephanie
