Deana, I was very saddened by the news of Roger's passing. He was one of the very few people who made a positive lasting impression in my life. Roger was a special human being and you were perfect together. I think about the rides and him spitting when he was frustrated and angry, and smile. Many good memories with you and Roger. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Deana.
