Shawn NewmanDear Pat and Chris, Roger was a kind and gentle man. He had an interesting journey, loved the mountains and rain forests. Remember when he wanted to buy a totem pole? We still have his walking stick, the one he used to climb around Mr. Rainier. I suppose his spirit is there now.

Anne and Lou KleinDear Pat,
I am so sorry that I wasn't able to come to the funeral. As I type this you are just beginning to meet with your family and friends and I regret not being there. You, on the other hand, should have no regrets. No one could of been a better wife or friend. There is nothing left but to rejoice that he is now healthy, happy and in the hands of God. Keep that in your heart, along with the love you both shared and give you peace.
With love, your cousin,
Bee and Charles PurcellDear Pat,
We were sorry to hear about Roger. This is not only a great loss to you and the children, but to all who really knew him.
We very much looked forward to Roger's visits to the bike shop. His relaxed manner, good nature, and interesting conversations were always welcome.
Midge SmithDear Pat and family,
I'll always remember Roger as a gentle soul. He adored you,Pat. I remember his saying that the blue topaz earrings he'd given you were the exact color of your eyes when I admired them.
He was a true craftsman, skilled, knowledgeable and fair. I learned so much from talking to him about jewelry and life in general.
You've all struggled for so long and I like to think of him as being at Mt. Rainier with no more struggles, enjoying the breathtaking scenery. He'll always be in your heart.
john barnes.My sympathy to all his family and friends.
A friendly man and a superb jewely creator.
