  • Wendy Horton says:

    Just looking at the picture of Roger tells the whole story of what a wonderful person he was. I only knew him for a short time through church in Cincinnati, but he was always smiling and always had a kind word. My deepest sympathy to Roger’s family and Sarah and Keoni. I will continue to pray for God’s blessing and comfort as you face the days ahead. I know it was God’s plan for us to all meet when we did and I will always be blessed for having known Roger and to know Sarah. Heaven is fortunate to have him and there is hope that one day we will all see him again. God bless you all.

  • Bpnnie Reaves says:

    Roger was a wonderful grandson-in-law, and I loved him very much. He will be greatly missed. May God wrap his arms around Sarah and Keoni and hold them close at this time In the two years they lived next door to me, I never heard or saw anycoming thing from Roger that would be unbecoming to a Christian.

  • Jane Isaacs says:

    I have never known a better person, a more soft-spoken, intelligent and caring man, a more devoted husband or a better father than Roger. Everyone’s life was made better by knowing him. ‘Go rest high upon that mountain.’- Much love and prayers for Roger’s entire family.

    Dear Sarah, Keoni and family~ My heart breaks for you as you continue to go through this time in your lives. Roger is with God and as you know will be an angel an help others somewhere soon to live the life they want by donating his organs. Although I did not get to meet Roger personally, I enjoyed talking with him on Facebook and reading the postings. You have my love and I will continue to pray for comfort for all of you. Keep all the wonderful memories close to your heart-you will ALWAYS have them. Ana Pulley
