Cheryl, I was so shocked to see Roger's obituary in the paper. He was such a great person, with a personality to match. We will miss him. I am so glad we bought this house from him, we will have memories of him, that way. I always enjoyed singing "For The Good Times" with him, at karaoke up at the club , what an awesome voice. God bless you and your families, and our deepest sympathy also.

I was saddened to read about Roger's passing. He was a great guy and an awesome advocate for canines in need. His canine behavioral knowledge was second to none. He was always kind and helpful to my husband and me when we owned a pet boarding/training facility. I know he will be missed, not only by family, but by his friends and associates.
