Rest in Peace. Always loved seeing your smiling face when I went to Lori's (Janet's Daughter). Always will remember last time Greg and myself seen you. We were leaving Lori's and we tried the deer jerkey, I remember telling Greg, damn that was good jerky. You were such a great spirit and always smiling. Janet's family loved you dearly and what great memories you gave them. We will see you again some day, Roger. Until then...

Greg and Miranda Devanie
