My condolences for your loss. I can't take away the pain of which you feel but, Isaiah 40:26 in part-reads that you will find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about your love one and bring them back again in the "resurrection hope". (Acts 24:15)

My sweet Judy and family,
I was shocked as everyone who heard the news this week. Roger was a man of honor, faith, and respect. He was a fixture at Mass and always ready to offer a helping hand. I cannot even imagine the loss you and the family are feeling at this time. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you process this loss. God is with you and Bishop Choby met Roger at the gate!

I cannot tell you of the pain I felt when Kenny told me Roger had passed. He was a wonderful man with a beautiful wife and a fabulous family. To say he will be missed by many is an understatement. I thank God, Judy, you have your beautiful family, who love you more than life, to comfort you. I will be thinking of you all with love and sorrow.
