Jorja and Family, Jorja, I hope you know how much we love you and Rog. I think back over the 45 years we were friends and smile. The last several years at the "Brose Mansion" in State College have been among the happiest times in my life,sharing wonderful moments. You always knew when Roger was around. If he was asleep, you heard him snoring, if awake he was singing. Sue and I will miss him forever.

Jorja, I am so sorry to hear of Roger's passing. When my Father passed, a very dear friend wrote the following of which I am sure is so very true for Roger... A man's most lasting influence on the world is seen in the faces of his family, in the light in their eyes when they talk about him and in the love they'll hold on to forever. Here's to an exceptional man - the life he lived, the hearts he touched and the legacy he left behind with you and your entire family. With my deepest sympathy, Steve

Jorja and family, You are all in my thoughts and prays as I share in your feelings of deep sadness of losing Rodger. He is not here physically, but will always be watching over you each and every day. His life has brought joy and enrichment to so many and his talents are now being used in Heaven. With love, Jane

Jorja and Family,
My deepest sympathy on your loss. I was deeply touched by the words of remembrance. You are so right that Roger impacted so many people. OVR is a better agency because of him! Roger was my boss, mentor and friend. I learned so much from him about vocational rehabilitation and more importantly, about being a good leader. I am privledged to serve in the role that Roger had for so many years and I could not have done it without his support! I am happy to have known him and to have learned from him but I am deeply sorrowful to have lost him. Know that all of you were the light of his life. One funny story, I will always remember the one day a year they did the xpn countdown and Roger would literally be skipping down the halls announcing the songs and singing parts of them to all! What joy he brought to everyone around him... the halls are too silent now. Again, my deepest sympathy to you and your family. Denise Verchimak
