It has taken a long time for me to find my words….
Roger and I met about 26 years ago on Vancouver Island.
He really saved me in the beginning! God Bless Roger’s compassionate soul. I have climbed a lot of Mountains in my Life… More with Roger than anyone else. Walking the dogs, berry picking, mushrooming, fishing hiking or exploring we definitely wore out a few pairs of boots!
We were best friends, we even worked and lived together for a time. Many, many laughs… n a few tears.
My condolences to the family… Thank you Heather for being here! Thank you for the box Mark, I almost cried.
Thank you Stephen…. your efforts on the “front line” were tremendous. Thanking all of you that took the time to Lighten the load of the family and the ones whom took the time to visit! God Bless there was an abundance of Love! Thank you!
To the happy hunting grounds I say! God speed to the endeavors you love! Miss you till we meet again…
My Friend !
And Love is All that is Left…. GBU all

Sending my deepest condolences to all of Rogers family. I have so many good memories of Roger being at our home with my late husband, Lorne. He was a wonderful man & a true friend.
