Nellie and family, So sorry for your loss. May the peace and comfort of God transcend the tears and grief that your are experiencing. Roger was a great man and someone whom I always respected. Still recall the times we worked on projects at Savannah. Of all the titles that Roger wore the one most evident was that of being a Christian. We are comforted in knowing that he awaits on the other side of Jordan and we will see him again. Sorry we will not be able to be there for the service. Please know we are lifting you in our prayers.
