    We are so sad when we lose a friend like Roger. He will certainly be missed, especially by those of us who loved to sing with him. But we know our grief is for ourselves and our loss, not for him. His work is done and he is now with God.
    Patsy, we love you. May your grief be lightened by memories of the good he did for you and so many others.
