Dear Cousin Dorothy...
It is with sincere sympathy that I think of you today in the loss of your husband Roger.
I heard some years back that Roger was driving tour buses, taking people for trips to different places and still leading a positive life in his later years.
It goes without saying that I also remember going all the way back to when I was a kid that I remember the time when Roger, Jack, my brother and myself had so much fun driving around Zeeland in cars that both Roger and Jack had just purchased for themselves!
(Their First Cars) What fun we had!!!
Roger was always so positive about life and I will also remember his love for the Lord and the importance of that in his life.
May the Lord take care of you Dorothy and may God continue to bless you and your family at this sad time.
With Love,
Jerry and Wilma Van Solkema
