How to put into words the love one feels for someone whose presence - love and kindness is larger than life itself. Uncle Roger, I could have spent every day listening to your stories; gaining from your advice; and feeling your love. You will be thought of every day or every year. I love you! Sending my thoughts prayers, and love to the extended family.

"The grave itself is but a covered bridge, leading from light to light, through a brief darkness" ~Longfellow My condolences to the entire extended family - he was a man who always walked in the light...

I am truly saddened to hear of Roger's passing...He was a man of honor...a great father..And a friend to everyone who knew him...I remember when he put brakes on my 1964 Ford Falcon...Saving me atleast a couple of hundred dollars!(A lot of money in 1972)...I never heard him say a bad word about anyone...That is a compliment to his character...I made it a point to visit him every summer...Esp. when I spent a year in my father's home the year he passed away 5 years ago...The Meunier family is one of the finest families that I have ever known...He was the Anchor in any storm...He will be sorely missed...

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. He was a wonderful, kind man, always had a smile and never had a bad thing to say about anything or anyone . . . I am sure he is happy to be reunited with your Mom . . . rest in peace, Uncle Roger.
