    Hi Sally and Jeremy
    I was completely shocked with the passing of Roger . I just wish we had kept better in touch with each other
    Marilyn was the cousin that was in touch with all of us …. First it was Skipper and now Roger
    I was remembering your wedding 47 years ago and then how Roger was my chauffeur
    for my wedding to Bill that August . And I am so pleased that many of us WAHL family cousins got together at Shelley’s and Roger was the person who asked me to organize it and I am so glad I did that
    I also am remembering that small cradle you used for Jeremy and my Dad passed it on to you and I think you redid /refinished it.
    I am pleased that Roger sent me a photo of him at birthday 🥳 #78 and I have a file of our conversations.
    I was wondering if you are are going to have Roger’s service being put on a Zoom connection so that I can be there with you in Spirit and now is on it’s on my way to you
    Blessings to both you and Jeremy

    Sally and Jeremy
    I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Rog….
    I was shocked to hear just today, about Rogers passing….
    I am sorry that i was not informed, and missed his local service today…
    To have lost both Roger and my mom within a year and a half of each other is hard to believe
    Loads of memories of Lake Joseph with Rog and you and Jeremy and Gram and Grandpa Ball…
    Sincere condolences,
    Stacey Klawitter (Rogers niece)

      Hi Stacey :
      Thanks so much for your very kind words.
      For sure we all have many happy memories of Lake Joseph.

      I remember when you were a flower girl at our wedding.
      These memories will help us remember a wonderful man, who, like your mom, always put the needs of others before his own.

      Hi Randy
      Thanks so much for these comforting words.
      Roger and Denny were very much alike.
      They both had ‘servant hearts’, and always sought to help others. We miss them both.
