What can I say about my Buddy. Rodger Dodger, as I affectionately called him, was a great man of wisdom. I sat with him for hours as he loves to tell stories of him growing up, all the places he's visited and the love of his family. I'm so grateful for the bond we formed, the love we had for each other & our favorite song we sang, Onward Christian Soldier! So thankful that when I last visited, I got a smile from him even though he could not see me. He knew his 'pain-in-the-neck was beside him holding his hand. He ask me how I was doing. That's just like him, concerned about others. Before I left, I leaned over, kissed him on his forehead & said I love you, Rodger Dodger! God bless him. He was my Buddy & will be truly missed. My condolences to the family. May God strengthen & comfort you at this difficult time. Sincerely, Ellen
