Roger aka Granddad, words can’t express how I feel. I am so sad. I am one of the lucky ones that was blessed to have known you. You had an infectionous smile, gorgeous hair (we can’t forget the hair) and a heart of gold. You became family to me and my family. You touched everyone’s heart especially mine. You taught me and Al the Southern ways and so much more. You will definitely forever live in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with you my dearest Melissa aka Red. Until we meet again Granddad. Your footprints are engraved in my heart. Rest in Eternal Peace.
