  • I have only known this family for a short time. Although, they always made me feel like family. I admired the friendliness that they showed not only to myself but my son as well.. You will truly be missed…I know that Roger was a Christian so, this separation is short term…The Bible says to be absent here is to be in the presence of the Lord.. May God Bless Kim and the entire family..
