Condolences & Tributes

Celebrate Rodger Lee's life with a short message, photo or video!

To the Henderson family please accept my condolences on the loss of Rodger. I remember him from our childhood days when all the neighborhood kids gathered at the playground behind Lynchburg High. Also his grandmother Ms. Julia had a good cherry tree in their backyard. As I am living outside of Lynchburg now I don't get a chance to speak with anyone from the good old days anymore. May God grant his family peace and comfort to carry on in his behalf because Rodger had a fighter spirit. He was outgoing, talkative, and didn't possess a bashful bone in his body. My prayers are with those who are feeling the loss of Rodger and may he rest in peace. Clara Lea Colmore King Norfolk VA
