Very sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Nancy and Susan and their extended family.

Iowa is a long way from you but always was enjoyable to pop in when Roger was in the hospital and when we were up there to see Pam's sister Joyce.

Ron passed this along to us, and appreciated it very much.

Love from us.

Jackie and Family,

Our condolences to you and your family.

Rollie was a very special person ... always with that special smile and great humor. I really enjoyed talking cars with him and remember his little Crosley car.

I have many good memories growing up, when you all would visit us at the Oak Mill home place, and yes .... all of us enjoying a nice meal of Mom's fried chicken.

Sonja and I very much appreciated you and Rollie's hospitality when we were in Seattle for 3 months, when Roger went through his Hodgkins treatment.
