Sending my thoughts and prayers to the family of Roger. I worked with Roger at GE when I was starting out my career and then for a few years until he retired. Roger was always gracious in the way he worked with people and treated them. He had a great testimony and it was easy to see he was living out what the Lord wanted him to be doing. I enjoyed talks I had with him. I am sure he will be missed but knowing we'll see him again is great. I sort of lost track of Roger and then ran into him a few times when attending my daughters church Loudonville Community Church.
