Hi. I just wanted to say what a terrific man Roger was. He made his choices and lived with the consequences. Along the way he highlighted for all of us the sometimes absurdities of health care. He is someone I shall admire and for whom I will carry a deep affection for the rest of my life. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Cindy Schaumberg

We will miss Roger coming over to help supervise the garden work and get produce when we are picking it.

Lewie and JoAnn,

We were so sorry to see that Roger passed and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Snowy Mountain View Road has certainly changed since you lived there. Rosie and Loenard's property is split into two pieces. Our friends Phil and Helene Mussig bought their house and surrounding 44 acres. Phil died a few years ago and Helene is still there. There's a horse ranch with renters on the lower piece. Another couple from Minnesota bought Chuck's house, totally remodeled it and have built a horse arena near the road - I guess they train horses. Vicky and John keep your house and yard in good condition. The Dr. still owns Lenard and Rosie"s old property with cows on it. Would like to sell but no one will give him the price he wants. Joey Melnarik owns the 77 acres north of Rosie and Leonard's for hunting.

I just found out through the Internet that you had passed. I knew you a long time ago when things were so simple. Rest in Peace, Roger
