    I can still hear Roger around the campfire at Shoreline Lake telling the kids a “scary” story. . . “It was a dark and stormy night, 3 smugglers were in a cave, one said to the other, hey Bill, tell us a tale, and this is the tale he told.”

    I also picture him on his bike, running the dog around the lake, dancing on the dance floor, and singing karaoke. I have such fun memories of him. He was so fun.

    Sending hugs, love and lots of prayers to all of you.
