To Roger’s family:How quickly time flies when you are in your 80’s. It seems only 2 years or so we would pass Roger sitting in the West Deacon’s pew in the back of Lansing’s First Presbyterian Church reaching out to shake our hands & often giving a terse comment or two about MSU”s latest sports event. He always looked neat & sharp in his Spartan green sport jacket!

Peace & God’s love be with you at this time. Sincerely, Russ & Elaine Scovill, 812 Blanchette Dr. East Lansng, MI. 48823
