Mrs Rogers (Mom) and family! I’ve known all of you since around 1980 & what made an impression to me about Mr Rogers (Dad) was that they both were always so welcoming, loving, kind & enjoyed a great laugh!  Because of these two people they have given me my best friend, Mandy!   I’m grateful for the life Dad lives & how he lived it (accepting people, treating them with kindness & love). You will be missed so much by your family & friends. He fought hard, he fought long & he never gave up which speaks to us about his strength!  Prayers are being said for each of you along with lots of love & hugs your way. I know too that he is alive in each one of you so I pray as you look back on the memories (laugh, cry, smile) that you let his love come through you. Love you all!!

You will be missed tremendously Uncle Hank. I love you and I will miss your calls to check up on me to make sure everything is going well, or to say thank you for even the smallest things. You had the biggest heart and you cared so much for your family and friends. I am so grateful for the time I got to spend with you.

Even though many times we disagreed strongly, there were so many times that Hank & Karen stepped in to include me as part of their small (but growing) family. There were times when I had no where to live, and times when I needed to be included & without complaint he took over to help me feel I had someone. Camping trips, a trip to Boise to see our brother and just having my own bed to sleep in. I continue to listen to 50's & 60's music & smile while reminiscing! Our check in calls will be sadly missed as well. RIP dear brother. I miss you so so much. And love you with all my heart. Your sis, MB
