To the Ford Family and other Family members, I would like to extend my sincere condolences to each and everyone of you. Roger was an inspiration for a lot of us that needed a time of humor that only he could give. When someone was feeling down he sure knew how to pick them up. The many stories that people are going to share is a tribute that his life had purpose and I for one am grateful to have had the pleasure to share in it. You will truly be missed Roger. May your soul now soar with the rest of GOD's Angels <3
