    Karen Willis,
    Thank you for being his friend and your thoughts and prayers.
    He was a very strong person and fought those long hard battles. He is no longer in pain.
    I like to think that he is on a roof in heaven, or walking and dancing.

    Rogers family, I am so sorry for your loss. Robert was a wonderful man. He had such a fun filled spirited heart. Robert always had a smile on his face even when he didn’t feel good. Over the last couple of years Robert has had a tough life health wise but he fought hard till the very end. His thoughts were always of helping someone else. He will certainly be missed. Prayers for your family that you have left behind Robert, but we will all see you again in Heaven one day. Love you my friend.
