Mr Fixit - he knew our church building inside and out and helped with so many projects, little and large. Thank you, Roger, for your kind and gentle way of just doing what needed to be done. You and your tools must be needed in heaven - rest in peace and may you live in our hearts forever.

My condolences. I only met Uncle Roger a few times but I really liked him.My mom told me how they met in the army and she loved all the noises he made while drawing. He can now visit Aunt Eileen and say hi to my mom. I wish all my cousins well.
