It is so hard not to see you around us. Everywhere Denise and I go; friends and family asked us how you were doing and when will you be coming out of the hospital? We kept telling everyone that you were a fighter and soon you would be reunited with all of us. Denise kept telling everyone that your journey had not yet ended,but The Lord had called you to his Kingdom and wanted you to be by his side.
You had been the FATHER to my wife and the best friend that I could have ever asked. You have enriched everyone’s life throughout your knowledge, wisdom and great personality. Thank You for your friendship. Thank you for allowing me to be your best friend. Thank you for allowing me to be as you said ” the son that you have never had”.
We love you Roger and my your sole be placed in the highest Heaven.
Tony and Denise Yacoub
