Please accept my sincere sympathies at Roger's passing. Roger and I were classmates at Immanuel grade school, were confirmed together at Immanuel, and graduated together from Waterloo High School. After high school, I did not see Roger again until our 50th class reunion. It was so nice to see and talk with him again. He was one of the good guys in the Class of 1965. May he rest in peace, and may God's perpetual light shine upon him.
God's comfort to your family.

So sorry for the loss of Roger. May God grant you peace and comfort. Sorry we could not extend our sympathy in person. Roger was an amazing person.
