I am sorry for your loss. I haven't seen Tammy or Roxie for many years. But we grew up together in the small village of Eagle Lake and went to school at the elementary school for years. I used to have the Antique Warehouse and Roger would come in maybe once a month just to look around. He always had a smile and always kind. He told me my mom used to call him smiley when she worked at Gorenson grocery store. I wish you all the best.
