  2. Dee Dougherty says:

    Dear Roger,
    You will be sadly missed by me (Dee) at Edwards beach….
    My kids Eddie, Erin and Matthew.
    You would always bring an onion for a hot dog or a burger, if you didn’t have money you would always come back and pay your dept…
    You loved being around people, talking, fishing, playing cards, coming to movie night… riding your bike, gardening, working on odd jobs.
    But most of all you loved talking about your daughter, your brothers, sisters, mom and dad.
    The Roger I knew had a big heart and would try to help anyone that needed it.
    People need not judge a book by its cover for they do not know the pain and suffering one may have.
    I am sorry I did not get to say goodbye. You will be forever in my heart, Dee

  3. Brenda Eliason says:

  4. Dave Ford says:

    Dear Roger: ( ‘Roger Dodger’ )

    They will take care or you, like they always did.
    Good luck in your new adventure.
