I remember playing football against Roger at Hickory Tavern in 1961. Roger and Johnny would receive the kickoffs. We called them Mutt and Jeff. They were fast -very fast. I had not seen Roger in years but ran into him at G's Quick Point a few months ago and we hashed out the old times again. I know all of you share great memories of Roger and our thoughts and prayers go out to you at the time. May God bless all of his family and many friends.
