    There are no words that can express how sad we are. Rollie was just like family and we are going to miss him so very much. We will treasure all the wonderful memories and will find peace and comfort knowing that Alice, Dad and others that went before him, greeted Rollie with arms wide open. Our deepest sympathy and love.

    We will surely miss Rollie. He was a very special friend. We met Rollie on a cruise in Alaska and he visited us in NC twice. What a visit! He surely knew how to have a great time and bring joy to others. He will truly be missed and especially our weekly chats.

    I was so sad to hear of Rollie’s death. So many of my childhood memories included my dear, loyal, loving and funny cousin. I know that all the family will miss him terribly. He loved you all so much.
    Love,
    Bonnie
