Phyllis, Joan and I would like to offer our condolences on Roger passing away. We very much enjoyed his company on the many occasions when we would come down to Canton for the many visits.
We had hopes of making the calling hours on Friday, but my brother and family were in town to visit. We just could not connect.
I hope we get an opportunity to visit with you down the road. We look forward to doing it.
