Martha Its amazing how we just clicked so many years ago and it started a great friendship. George and I are deeply honored and blessed to have known Roger and the Everson family since as long as I can remember Elm Haven, "Q" House and St. Paul UAME church youth. I know you had a great marriage and loved him so much. I share your grief at this time. May God bless and comfort you and your family.
The Bracey Family
