My uncle Roger, my mom's brother, passed away this week, and I'm headed to Ohio for his funeral. Uncle Roger has two beautiful daughters who are two of the kindest, most compassionate women I have ever met. He also has four wonderful grandchildren, a great-grandchild, and a second great-grandchild on the way. He was my mom's oldest sibling. He lived in Ohio all of his life, but traveled through military service and to spend time with his daughter, a missionary in Ecuador. He loved airplanes, history, woodworking. He and his wife, Erma, were married in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, in 1952.
Rest in peace, Uncle Roger.
