To: Layne Heiner and Family.
I'm so sorry to here of Roger's passing. I will cherish the times we spent together on the railroad and all the laughs we had together. Roger had a great attitude and a point of view that eased stressful situations, he always saw the funny side of everything, we could all learn something from him. I wish I could be at Roger's funeral but, I'm stuck up here in Idaho and not able to make it back in time. My condolences to you and your family and hope all is well with you. Your friend,

Henry O'Keefe
