|Let the memory of Roger be with us forever|
Roger Albert White, 49, born on October 4, 1962 and passed away unexpectedly on April 21, 2012 in Old Orchard Beach. Roger never met a person that was not his friend. He was a gentle and caring soul. His smile and laughter were something that drew people to him. He was a carpenter by trade but there wasn't much he couldn't do. Ever helpful and compassionate he will be remembered fondly by all that were lucky enough to know him. As we continue this journey through life without him remember he watching us all and when the quirky moment happens it will be him reminding you that he is with you.
Visiting hours will be held on Monday, April 30 from 5-7 p.m. at the Old Orchard Beach Funeral Home, 36 Portland Ave., Old Orchard Beach. Burial will be held at a later date at Laurel Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Animal Welfare Society, P.O. Box 43, West Kennebunk, ME 04094.
"I can't believe it's been 4 years Roger! I know you are still with us in spirit and that brings me peace. I still can hear your laughter and see your smile! You remain forever in my heart."
"For u Roger!!!"
Thought of you yesterday thinking you and dad and buck were fishing, and ma was swimming in the ocean like she always loved to do. Was 4 years ago you were taken, and I wonder why? I hope u are happier than any one person can be. You have beautiful girls and grand babies I know you can see and are smiling from ear to ear. I know you are loving them with all you got. Miss you Roger, truly, but I remember our last time together and I smile, because there was love!!!"
"The start of football season has got me thinking about you. You used to get so engrossed in the Pats games and now I can see why. They're amazing to watch. Not the same players as when I was a little girl, but still the same integrity. You may not have gotten me into football, but I still feel closer to you while watching it.
Miss you ❤️"
"Your word Rodge
"Your word Rodge
"One more year has passed and it still feels like yesterday you left us. I think of you often and smile."
"Well here it is... That damn day again. I guess that's why it's rainy today. You are not forgotten. The beauty of the world lives on in the next generations. They are beautiful souls that carry on all that is good, you would be proud."
"Thinking of you today, and everyday."
"So you were in my dream last night. My horoscope told me I would have vivid dreams and boy were they. You made me feel ok and at peace with our world. You looked good and happy. Each of the girls were there more in their younger years and happy to see you. It was a good feeling. Oh and you and Buck and Keith were playing horseshoes. It was an al over the place dream, but all happy warm fuzzy things. You left me going down a set of stairs and smiling back at me. I told you looked good you told me I didnt then laughed and said kidding. Thanks for the smiles"

"Roger, I'm so sorry I could not attend your candle light vigil on Saturday night. I'm now on a new path in my life, one which I'm sure you would be proud of. I just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you as I often do."

So far away
Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feelin' and knowing you, hear me

And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day
Eventually I'll see you i"

"Looking back I see your smile
Your laugh will stay with me a while
I never really saw an end
Thought you’d be here always my friend
You listen to the tears I cried
Never pushing me aside
It hurts a lot to see you go
But there is one thing you must know
I will never again hear your voice
But its no a mistake when HE makes a choice
He only takes the good ones home
And in Heaven you now roam"
