Roger was such a blessing to my late parents, Willard and Gertrude Willink. He visited them at home and in the hospital numerous times, always with a smile and a word/prayer of encouragement. Thank you, June, for the many meals and cards you provided as well. May you experience grace and peace as you celebrate memories of Roger's contributions to your life and to God's kingdom as a whole.

It was a privilege to have had Roger in our lives as an Elder and a neighbor. The hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness" comes to mind when I think of how Rog humbly and sincerely shared his life with everyone.
