Roger, I can't even begin to express how much John and I miss you. Every time we ride and camp we know you are still there with us. We drove down to St. Cloud and rode your Memorial Ride sponsored by the Sheriff's Dept at Lake X Ranch Saturday. The emotional tributes were so heart felt. As we rode out, there was a double rainbow, so we all knew you were looking down and smiling over all of us. It was very emotional for the girls also. We all love you and miss you so very much.
