    I put this off as long as I could. I met Roger in 1993. We worked together, ate together, traveled together, golfed together and spoke to each other weekly for almost 30 years. I knew his family and he knew mine. I did not realize he was as sick as he was. He will be missed by many but none more than me. My true friends I can count on one hand and Roger was one of them! Good Bye old friend!

    Dad,

    You meant the world to me. I'll miss your sporadic calls at random intervals, and the conversations we'd have as two adults. Words cannot describe the depth of our love. I'll miss you forever.

    Your Eldest Son,

    Dan Morrison

    Pat and family,

    My condolences at the passing of Roger.. I worked with Roger for nearly two decades in the B&L Tampa facility. I treasure the memories and the great collaboration. He was a colleague and a friend. It was clear to me, also, that he was a proud dad and devoted husband. I heard many stories while waiting for flights, and on road trips to suppliers. My prayers for comfort are with you.

    Dale Williams
