I am so sorry for your loss. Roger was a dear friend of mine whom I had the pleasure of working with for over 6 years at MITCO. Over the past year whenever he would come by to visit, it was always so nice to see him and speak with him. He will most definitely be missed by our organization and those who knew him.
