Sue “once fav sister-in-law” for Roger “once fav brother-in-law” I will always remember the great holidays with you and Rog, his music with Larry and all the fab food. I learned much about pheasants, gun dogs and good shotguns out of doors with you guys. Though we hadn’t talked in ages, I’ll never forget him.

Sue and family,
  Please except our sympathy. Diane and I had so much fun with Roger and totally loved watching him and his humor. Roger was special to me, he reminded me a lot of my own father who could do anything, a true handyman.
  I’ll always remember Roger getting in trouble with me on Siesta Key riding our bikes on that crabby ladies private property. She was totally obnoxious!
  There is no one and will be no one to replace Roger. I will raise a toast to his memory.
