    I am so lucky I had the opportunity to care for your father/father-in-law. He always could put a smile on all our faces with his witty humor!! He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace!!

    Hello Everyone, I’m Rol’s tallest (and old-er) daughter, Roberta.
    I look forward to meeting with family and friends on Monday. My brother, Frank and I are coming from California to toast our Dad, remember all the Good Times and saying THANK YOU to all of those who took such good care of him and enjoyed him for us all these years. He will be dearly missed. He will live in us forever. How could you forget that big grinning smile and huge twinkling eyes?
    I hope to get a chance to meet with his caregivers at Sunrise before the service on Monday. God Bless,
    Roberta Cox
