On Saturday, June 27th, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. many friends and family members of Rogers gathered for the dedication of the bench and plaque in memory of Roger. I would like to thank everyone for their support and attendance and I know those of you who couldn't make it that day will certainly find time to visit the bench and reflect on the wonderful memories that you have of Roger.

As I had said on that day, we have all had to learn to live our lives in a new way. The way is with Roger in our heart, although not good enough, not nearly close to being good enough, it is the best we have for now. Roger wants us to be happy, but Roger was not expecting us to deal with this, he'll be patient with us.

I want to give a special thanks to Matt Markel and all of those who help in the preparation of the memorial and the purchasing of the bench and plaque, Roger was blessed to know all of you and of course all of us blessed with him in our lives.
