  2. CandleImageI am so very sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. I worked with Roger when I was a Pathologists’ Assistant at Northside Hospital. I will never forget his wonderful smile, his kindness and his excellence as a Histologist. He always made me feel welcome when I joined the Pathologists group. To his family, I send my deepest condolences. I will miss you, dear Roger.
