Roger was such a friendly man, always cheerful and thankful for each new day and I was blessed to have gotten to know him at Sunset. My heart was saddened to hear of Roger's passing but thankful knowing he is rejoicing with his Lord and Saviour in heaven. My sincere sympathy to Roger's family. Arlene Jeurink (wait staff)

I am so sorry for your loss. I felt like Roger was a friend of mine and have been blessed to know him. I will miss his checking in on me and our conversations at Sunset. My prayers are with you all.
