The sadness comes in waves. Luckily, it is interspersed with many, many fond memories. Denise and Roger are dear friends, extended family really, as they have been with us at countless life moments including milestone birthdays, dinners and celebrations. Roger was a kind, thoughtful and very interesting man. We loved sharing conversations about great wines, travel destinations, must-go-to restaurants and the adventures of our beloved dogs. We will miss him terribly but will never forget him. Denise, our sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so saddened to learn of Roger's passing. He was such a wonderful gentleman and I feel very blessed to have known him professionally and socially over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Roxie. May you find comfort in your family and friends around you and knowing that Roger is Home with God and free of pain and illness, smiling down lovingly on you all.
I regret that I will be unable to attend the next week as I am out of the country on business however; I will thinking of you and knowing Roger will be joining in from above, in singing all his favourite hymns.
My heart goes out to Denise & Roger's entire family. He was a WONDERFUL man & HIGHLY respected professional. I will forever cherish the countless meetings & extensive bisiness trips we took together. I had the pleasure of promoting Roger @ Claire's Stores, Inc. from (TVP) Territorial Vice President, Canada to (COO) Chief Operating Officer, United Kingdom. Working closely with him & his entire team (in Birmingham, England) to achieve the HIGHEST profits & contributions in their collective ( 800+ stores) history. His team building, dedication & loyalty were some of his strongest abilities. His legacy is forever etched @ Claire's as a world class leader, mentor & achiever (on a global scale). GOD BLESS YOU my friend in business & beyond. Sincerely, Nancy Rich
